I like making beef roast in the crock pot.

I put the roast in, add a can of tomato soup (though someday I would like to modify this to make it more natural) and set it on low and walk away.

About 6 hours later I have a delicious tender roast with some yummy gravy. The tomato soup blends with the meat juices to make a nice beefy-tomatoey gravy.

Not that I do meat but I did learn that adding a can of Coke to beef in the crock pot makes it super tender.

French Dip Sandwiches
Put roast, 1 can of beer, 1 can of condensed French Onion soup and 1 can of water into crock pot. I haven't made this in a while, so I don't know what's in that can of French Onion soup.

I did a little more searching on coke in the crock pot, and I found a recipe for barbequed chicken that adds bbq sauce and coke to chicken in the crock pot, with ketchup and onion soup on a roast, and something with ham that I didn't bother investigating

Default Re: Casseroles and Crock-pot meals

(Disclaimer: This is a recipe I got from someone on this board about 3 years ago and I can't remember who it was! It is fabulous, and I'm posting it because it is so easy for busy moms, is easily made vegetarian, and is simply delicious!).
-----------------------------------

Tex-Mex Soup (8 servings, 1 Ĺ cups each)

1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 pkg (1.25-oz) taco seasoning mix
1 pkg (1-oz) ranch dressing mix
1 15-oz can black beans
Ĺ of a 15-oz can corn
1 15.5-oz can great northern beans (or white beans if you canít find great northern)
1 15.5-oz can pinto beans
1 16-oz can chicken broth
1 14.5-oz can tomatoes with chiles
1 14.5-oz can stewed tomatoes

Stovetop method: Brown meat and drain fat. Add seasoning mixes. Drain and rinse canned beans. Add to turkey. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Serve hot.

Crockpot method (preferred): Brown meat and add seasonings. Drain and rinse beans, then add all ingredients to crock pot, mixing thoroughly. Cook on low all day.

Vegetarian version: Omit turkey and use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. Mix all ingredients together in crock pot and cook on low all day.

Serve with corn bread or tortillas, rice (brown rice is our favorite!), and garnish with guacamole, sour cream, or crushed tortilla chips. Freezes well, also!

Mexican beef stew

1 lb beef stew meat
small onion
1 green pepper
1 can rotel
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can pinto beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can white beans
1 can corn

Put stew meat, chopped onion, and chopped green pepper, rotel, and tomatoes into crock pot. Cook on low for 6 hours. Add beans and corn. Turn crockpot onto high and cook for 1 hour so flavors can meld. Then enjoy. This is a family favorite, is super easy, and extra yummy!
