Crock pot crazy!!!!

We've whipped out the slow cooker for winter time meals in the Harwell household!!!! We've had our crock pot for over a year and we just used it for the first time last week! Let me just say that it makes a great dinner! The neat thing is you can just throw what ever you want into the crock pot in the morning and when you come home you have dinner!!
Last week I made: Awesome slow cooker pot roast!

1 (10.75 ounce) cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 (1 ounce) package dry onion soup mix
1 can beef broth
1 or 2 lb. chuck roast peeled and cut potatoes
(any other veggies you want to add)
salt and pepper


In a slow cooker, mix cream of mushroom soup, dry onion soup mix and water. Place pot roast in slow cooker and coat with soup mixture.

Cook on High setting for 3 to 4 hours, or on Low setting for 8 to 9 hours.

Tomorrow night Nathan is making his own stew in the crock pot. He uses chuck roast, celery, potatoes, carrots, beef broth, onion, creol seasoning, salt, pepper, lemon pepper, & a little ms. dash

I haven't tried this recipe yet but it looks so yummy! Here is the recipe from Food Network

Have you ever used the crock pot to make a meal? Any good recipes to share?


  1. I LOVE our crockpot! I discovered how amazing it was last year.. the whole house smells so yummy and it's so easy to dump stuff in a pot and 8 hours later you have a tasty dinner! Next time you try a roast try this:

    Olive oil
    Kitchen Bouquet
    Worcestershire sauce
    Garlic powder
    Chili powder
    salt and pepper
    Baby carrots and potatoes

    on low for 8 hours. It is amazing! And with the juice that's left over in the crock pot from your seasonings...

    Dump it into a skillet and make brown gravy with milk and flour to pour over your roast :)

  2. thanks! what is kitchen bouquet?
