Default Re: Non soupy crock pot meals?

I make soups and stews. Pinto beans with veggies and a can of diced tomatoes is a recurring favorite. Then this chicken thigh/stout beer/carrot and mushroom stew that is delicious and tastes like beef.

I don't know if you are anti soup at this point, though, so I'll hunt down the recipe for the chicken if you'd like.

I've taken to keeping a quiche in the fridge too.

You said no soups, but I have 6 or 8 bean based freezer meal crockpot dishes if you're interested.

That was my concern too. All that food tasting the same!

You can do pasta sauces in the crockpot so all you need to do is your pasta.

I have a great bourbon chicken recipe. It's just chicken but you could steam some veggies to go with it.

In my crockpot right now: Links of chicken sausage, with sliced onion, bell pepper and diced tomatoes (from a can). I plan to serve with rice and a green veg tonight.

Chicken sausage with a can of marinara on it with buns waiting is good.

He long do you do this? High or low?

Sounds like something my people would love.

How much and what kind of liquid goes into this casserole?

Default Re: Non soupy crock pot meals?

I made rice in my crock pot this week. Jasmine rice (3 cups) and water (6 cups). I put butter ALL OVER the crock pot, put the rice in, and added the water. 90 minutes or so later, we had delicious, fluffy rice. I heated the beans on the stove in about ten minutes, and we ate.

I made lasagna in the crock pot this week. It wasn't all soupy like it normally is when I take it out of the oven. Yummy!

I put a pack of chicken tenders in the crock pot and added just a bit of liquid. They will cook pretty quickly (90 minutes), but I can leave them in there for 4-5 hours on low and they still taste moist. I just put some sweet potatoes in there too. It wasn't soup.

I used it three times this week! No soup!

Low and it was ready in a few hours. Last time, I did brown the sausage first, but you don't have to.
