APRICOT NUT BREAD
* 3/4 cup dried apricots
* 1 cup flour
* 2 tsp baking powder

* 1 egg, slightly beaten

Crockpot Recipes Page 8 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
soda, salt and sugar into a large bowl. Combine the milk, egg, orange peel, and
oil. Stir the flour mixture and the whole wheat flour. Fold in the cut up apricots,
any flour left on the cutting block and the walnuts. Pour into a well greased,
floured baking unit. Cover and place on a rack in the slow cooker, but prop the lid
open a fraction with a toothpick or a twist of foil to let excess steam escape.
Cook on High for 4 to 6 hours. Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Serve warm or cold.
Makes 4 to 6 servings.
Now before you all ask what a baking unit is (I wondered as I sat and typed this
in), I looked it up in the front of the bread section. She says that some
manufacturers are making units for slow cookers, but if you don't have one, a 2
pound coffee can works. Pyrex muffin cups also work. Also 1, 1 1/2 and 2 quart
molds work.
DO NOT LIFT THE LID WHILE BAKING THIS BREAD.

served on rolls or buns. It's also good served like tacos with all the trimmings in
soft or regular taco shells.

1 8 oz brick of cream cheese, cut up in cubes
1/2 C chicken broth
1 large onion
crushed garlic to taste

two layers in my crockpot to make sure that the Italian seasoning got on all the
chicken and not just those peices on top.)
Crockpot Recipes Page 54 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
About 45 minutes before done, brown the onion in the butter and then add the cream
cheese, soup, and chicken broth to the saucepan. Add the crushed garlic and stir
all ingredients until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pour sauce mixture over chicken in crockpot and cook an additional 30-45 minutes.
Remove chicken to platter and stir sauce before putting in gravy
CREAMY CHICKEN AND RICE
* chicken tenders (3 per person)
* cream of mushroom soup
(1 can for 2-3 people, 2 for 4-6)
* Mrs. Grass Onion Soup Mix (1 per each can of soup)
* 1Tbsp olive oil
* long grain brown rice (1 cup per can of soup)
* 1Tbsp whole thyme, crushed
* S&P to taste
* desired amount of broccoli florettes (optional)
* diced red pepper (optional)
When using brown rice, you need 2 1/4 cups liquid for each 1 cup rice. So I empty
my can of soup into a measuring cup, and add water (or white wine) to equal 2 1/2
(not a typo, you need the extra for the onion soup mix). Heat olive oil in a saute
pan, and add rice until it begins to crackle, but not brown. This will make the
rice dense, and help it keep it's shape while cooking. Whisk together the soups and
additional H2o, herbs and seasonings. Combine all ingredients (except veggies) in
crockpot, and cook on high 4-6 hours, or 8-10 hours on low. During last 30-45
minutes, add desired veggies.
Great with crusty bread, and a fresh salad.

grated zest and juice of one lemon
3 TBS grated ginger
Combine apples, brown sugar, apple cider, zest, juice. Cover and cook 8-10 hours on
low, til apples are very soft. (A good thing to do overnight!) Then stir in ginger,
increase heat to high, uncover and cook (stirring now and then) til mixture is
reduced to about 3 cups for 8 to 10 hours. (This part sounds kind of incredible,
come to think of it...I can't imagine sticking around for 10 hours to stir
occasionally...oh well, I've come this far, might as well continue!). Put the
resulting mash through a food mill.

I used Zesty Italian dressing mix and I added 1 onion slivered up. I put it all in
the crockpot the night before I was going to spend all day cooking. By morning, it
was tender. I took it out shredded it and had 2 meals in the freezer by 8:30 that
morning! WOO HOO It sounded almost too easy to me. But this was one of the best
smelling recipes I've made in a long time! I keep hoagie buns in the freezer from
the bread store (day old, got 'em for 2 packages for $1!!!) I'll take a pack of
those out, add the beef and a slice of cheese and VOILA! Dinner!
CROCKPOT BEEF N BREW VEGETABLE SOUP

CROCKPOT BEEF POT ROAST

1 can of beer (your choice-not dark)
Crockpot Recipes Page 78 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003

If your a gravy maker, the sauce made into a gravy is YUMMY! I serve this with
potatoes.
CROCKPOT BEEF STEW I
2 lbs. stew beef
1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. paprika
4 lg. carrots
3 lg. potatoes
1 c. condensed beef broth
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/3 c. soy sauce
1 lg. onion
1 can tomato sauce (8 oz.)
Layer potatoes, then carrots. Top with meat; sprinkle meat with soy sauce, salt,
paprika, pepper & flour.
Spread with chopped onions. Combine beef broth & tomato sauce & pour overall. Cover
& cook on low 7 - 8 hrs. or high 4 - 5 hrs.
NOTES:
Instead of sprinkling the meat with soy sauce, salt, paprika, pepper & flour as the
recipes says, I mix those all together in a small bowl. This prevents the flour
from becoming clumpy.
-Instead of chopped onions, I use 3 or 4 small yellow onions whole (I'm not an
onion fan but still like the taste they give the stew.)
-I add about 1/4 cup barbecue sauce to the top, before putting the cover on. I use
whatever variety of sauce that I have on hand. I don't usually buy the "regular"
flavor of any brand, but instead have hickory, brown sugar or garlic and onion
flavors. The BBQ sauce adds an extra "kick" to the meat and gravy.
-For the beef broth, since I don't usually keep that on hand, I dissolve 1 beef
bouillon cube into 1 cup boiling water.

CROCKPOT BROCCOLI SOUP WITH A LITTLE HELP
Serving Size : 8
4 tablespoons margarine
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1 carrots -- thinly sliced (1 to 2)
1 cup water
1/4 cup rice
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 heads broccoli (about a pound)
1 can cream of broccoli soup
3 cups 2% low-fat milk
Crockpot Recipes Page 91 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
paprika -- for garnish
Saute onion, carrot slices and celery in margarine until tender. Stir in water,
rice, pepper, and cream of broccoli soup. Stir until smooth. Cover and cook over
low to medium heat for 15 minutes. Cut off broccoli stems and slice into very thin
pieces - the size of a match stick. Separate tops into florets and steam broccoli
until tender. Save a few tops for garnish. Stir broccoli into soup and cook until
everything is tender and hot. Now you have a choice. You can place a whole batch of
soup into your blender, add the milk and blend until smooth. Or, you can put just
half the soup in your blender - add the milk and still have some whole pieces of
veggies to eat or you can just add the milk and leave all the pieces of veggies
alone and enjoy the soup like it is. Anyway, you want to reheat the soup but do not
boil. Garnish bowls of soup with paprika and broccoli florets.
NOTES : you can leave the cream of broccoli soup out, if you wish, but it does add
a little more body and a few more interesting tastes to the dish.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN NOODLE SOUP NEW ORLEANS STYLE
1 lg Whole fryer
1/2 c Diced celery
4 ea Cloves minced garlic
3 ea Bay leaves
4 ea Qts water
2 tb Butter
1 c Sliced mushrooms
1/4 c Cream sherry
Green onions for garnish
1 c Diced onions
Crockpot Recipes Page 116 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
1/2 c Minced parsley
1 c Chopped carrots
1 ts Poultry seasoning
12 oz Broad egg noodles
1 c Sliced onion rings
1 c Diced carrots
Salt and pepper to taste
First, take the chicken and wash it thoroughly - that means both inside and out!
Remove the giblets, scrub out the internal cavity under cold running water, and
scrape away anything that doesn't look edible. (But DO NOT remove the chicken skin
or any of the fat! You need the skin to make a rich stock.) Next, take a crock pot
and place the chicken and giblets into it. Then drop in the diced onions, the 1/2
cup of chopped carrots and bay leaves, poultry seasoning and *2* quarts of water.
Then, with a spoon, evenly distribute the seasoning mixture around the chicken,
turn the crock pot to high, and cook for at least six hours (or better still,
OVERNIGHT). Remember, the longer you cook, the richer the base stock and the more
tender the chicken. (I cooked it overnight) While the chicken is slow-cooking, it's
a good time to prepare your noodles. Go ahead and boil them according to package
directions... but DO NOT COOK THEM UNTIL DONE! Keep in mind that you're going to
drop them into a soup, so you want them el dente (firm), otherwise they'll turn to
pure mush by the time you eat them. Furthermore, you want a small percent of the
starch in the noodles to cook into the soup to thicken it slightly - if you cook
the noodles all the way, the soup's consistency will be flat and thin. After the
noodles are cooked, butter them slightly and set them aside. When the chicken is
tender, take a set of tongs or a strainer spoon, remove it from the crock pot (it
may tend to fall apart, but that's okay), and set it on a platter to cool. At this
point, strain out all the seasoning vegetables from the stock, place the stock into
a metal bowl, and place the bowl into the refrigerator or freezer until the chicken
fat congeals (which should take about 1 hour). Meanwhile, pick the chicken off the
bones and, with a sharp knife, chop it into bite-sized pieces. Then, in a heavy 12-
inch skillet, melt the butter and saute the sliced onions, mushrooms, and carrots
until they're tender. Then drop in the chopped chicken meat. And over medium-low
heat, cook it into the vegetables for about 10 minutes. While the chicken and
vegetables are sauteing, remove the chicken stock from the refrigerator, skim off
all the fat, and place the skimmed stock into a soup pot, along with the remaining
2 quarts of water. At this point, you should season the soup stock to taste with
salt and pepper. Now drop in the sauteed chicken, mushrooms, onion rings and diced
carrots - along with the sherry, the Tabasco, and as soon as it comes to a boil,
reduce the heat to low and simmer the soup about 30 minutes to allow all the
flavors to thoroughly blend. When you're ready to eat, ladle out heaping helpings
of the piping hot soup into bowls, garnish with a sprinkling of thinly sliced green
onions, and serve with crunch saltines. I used several generous shakes of Tabasco.
It was spicy, but not overwhelmingly hot and fiery. And it was HEAVENLY!

IF you don't love garlic, use regular tomatoes, but this had a wonderful garlic
flavor, we thought. Even the kids liked it, and they usually won't eat anything
with sauce. The "sauce" is VERY liquidy, so if you want a more gravy-ish sauce, add
some tapioca at the beginning, or partially drain the tomatoes before cooking.

Crockpot Recipes Page 136 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
1 tb Chopped fresh parsley
To cook: Place the onions in the slow cooker. Remove the fat from the vent of the
chicken and dice it. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the fat until it is
rendered. Discard the shriveled bits and saute the chicken until well browned.
Season with 1/2 tsp salt and the pepper. Warm the brandy in a ladle or a small
saucepan; light it with match and pour it over the chicken. When the flame
dies,lift the chicken into the slow cooker and add the garlic, thyme, and bay leaf.
Pour the wine into the hot skillet and scrape up the pan juices. Dissolve the flour
in the bouillon, turn it into the skillet and bring to simmering, stirring briskly
to prevent lumps. Turn into the slow cooker. Cover and cook on Low 7-9 hours.
Before serving: About 10 minutes before serving, in a medium skillet, saute the
mushrooms in the butter over medium high heat. In about 5 minutes, they will be
tender and the moisture will have evaporated from the skillet. Season with 1/4 tsp
salt and add to the chicken casserole. If the sauce seems thin, simmer it in the
mushroom skillet long enough to thicken to the consistency of heavy cream. Garnish
the Coq au Vin with parsley before serving.

CROCKPOT CRANAPPLE SAUCE
10-12 medium apples
1-2 cups cranberry juice
lemon juice -- use 1/4 to 1/2 lemon
2 tbs sugar -- or up to 1/4 cup if you want it sweet
1/4 to 1/2 cup dried cranberries or "craisins" (sweetened dried cranberries)
-Wash the apples and chop them up without peeling. Squeeze lemon juice over them as
you cut them.
-Put apples in crockpot with cranberry juice -- use 1 cup if you want the
applesauce thick, more if you want it thin. Stir in sugar to suit your taste.
-Let apples stew on low for 6-8 hours. About an hour or two before serving, stir in
cranberries or craisins. (All I found at my store was craisins--since they're
sweetened, I used less sugar.)
-The applesauce is a very pretty pink and the cranberries & juice give it a nice
zing.
-As you can see, the recipe is simple and forgiving -- let the apples stew a little
longer or a little less -- the longer you stew them the mushier the applesauce will
be. It warms up nicely, or you can eat it cold.

2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon dry mustard
2 teaspoons cider vinegar 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch blended w/2 tablespoons cold
water
salt
-In a 3-quart or larger electric slow cooker, combine onion, cranberries. Arrange
chicken on top. In small bowl, mix catsup, sugar, mustard and vinegar and pour over
chicken. Cover. Cook at low setting until chicken is very tender when pierced (6
1/2 to 7 1/2 hours).

thickens (10 to 15 more minutes). Season to taste with salt; pour over chicken.

-REAL WORLD COOKING: I cooked at a higher heat setting than they did because I was
in a hurry. I also did not remove the chicken, just threw the cornstarch in and
stirred it in and then cranked up the heat a bit. Didn't stir again more than once.
Then dumped it onto a big platter. It was fine. I also chose to use 7 chicken
breasts instead of the 12 thighs. It also didn't take as long as 6 1/2 hours.

Crockpot Recipes Page 206 of 245
e-book://Pages/crockpot_recipes.htm 2/16/2003
It is important to have the dried apricots minced. Put all ingredients into the slow cooker/Crock Pot. Stir to blend
well. Cover and cook on high for 1 1/2 hours; stir once after about an hour. Or, cook on high for the first 30
minutes, turn to low and cook as long as desired. Check after the first 2 hours of low cooking and stir. If the rice is
not absorbing the milk quickly enough, turn the slow cooker/Crock Pot up to high again. Keep cover on at all
times.
Slow Cooker temperatures vary widely among different brands. Only experimentation can tell you the correct
amount of time for cooking in your slow cooker/Crock Pot. Rarely will a slow cooker/Crock Pot recipe fail, though,
as the long, slow cooking process does not require precise timing.
