PostSubject: Paw's Pepsi Pot Roast   Sat Sep 06, 2008 8:26 pm

PEPSI POT ROAST

3-4 lb. pot roast
10 3/4 oz. can cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
12 oz. can of Pepsi (NOT diet)

--Place meat in slow cooker (no need to brown roast)
--Top with soup and onion soup mix and pour Pepsi around meat

If you "thicken" juice a bit--it makes great gravey.

LEM's Crock Pot Chicken
Quarter several potatoes and put in bottom of crock pot.
Chunk carrots and onions and put in bottom of crock pot.
- you can add other veggies if you want, this is just what I use.

For the chicken we usually use either a cut up whole chicken or several pre-trimmed and cleaned chicken breasts and thighs.
Season chicken with Montreal Chicken Seasoning or Lowry's Chicken Seasoning on all sides.

Put chicken in crock pot on top of veggies.
Take one can of cream of chicken soup (condensed kind), and spread over the top of the chicken -- DO NOT ADD WATER.

It looks a little weird in the crock pot, but when it's done after cooking all day, it's delish! My family loves it and when out of town visitors come over, it's always a sure crowd pleaser.

Hope you like it.
LEM.

Here's what I made the other night.

COLA ROAST

3 lb. pot roast
1 envelope dry onion soup mix
2 cans of cola (NOT diet) I used Pepsi



--Place roast in slow cooker. Sprinkle with soup mix. Pour soda over all.
--Cover. Cook on low 7-8 hours.


OK, Bratt here. Since it's just me, I buy the smallest possible roast our grocery store sells (usually just over 2 lbs.) I found out the hard way the first time I made the previous recipe for Pepsi pot roast that

6 hours on high
most of the day on low.
and start it at 10:30 on a Sunday and expect it to be done around 5-6 after being on low all day are NOT the same thing. That's how I screwed it up the first time.

Therefore, I stuck with the 6 hours on high rule for this one and it worked fine.

I liked this version better because I don't like mushrooms and you can actually taste the Pepsi in the gravy. I haven't mastered thickening the gravy yet, so I really can't say if you can do that very easily.

PostSubject: AJ's SLOW COOKER LASAGNA.   Tue Sep 16, 2008 8:20 pm

You have to break up the lasagne sheets so it doesn't look as perfect as lasagne baked in an oven. It comes out more like Italian restaurants where they've baked it slow for hours.

Only brown off the meat and onion then add the sauce and tomatoes and don't worry about cooking it any longer than that before putting it in the slow cooker.


About 400g-500g mince (1lb ground beef)
1 large onion
1 clove garlic crushed
1 jar of pasta sauce
1 tin chopped tomatoes (400g tin)
sprinkle of Italian herbs (masterfoods or whatever)
fresh basil

mozzarella and tasty cheese I also use the Dolmio pasta bake bechamel lasagne sauce (quick and easy and i don't have to worry about making white sauce)

Cook the mince, onion and garlic until the mince is cooked. Add the tomatoes, pasta sauce and herbs.

Layer into crockpot with dried lasagne sheets and top with sauce and cheese

Cook for about 7-8 hrs on low

I like the idea of a crock pot (slow cooker) lasagna.The jar of pasta sauce..is that a white sauce? I think the closest to that we have here is called Alfredo sauce. AND..you really don't need more water or liquid for the lasagna noodles to go soft and not get too pasty? Need. More. Input! LOL

This sounds easier than the traditional of making it. Helen, we need a bit of trans- oceanic translation please.

(Amandajayne, we use Helen to convert Aussie ingredients into American/Canadian ingredients so we can try new stuff.)

thanks for sharing this. Lasagne sounds good. Haven't made it in a while.

I just love good recipes that I can start in the morning when I'm full of energy and the food is ready later when I've done too much and I'm too tired to feel like cooking. I think I like everything that's Italian? This sounds like such a good one to try.

Pasta sause Finisher is a tomato/basil/redwine whatever you like to use.

So glad to see you here MT here you go

All you do is put your silverside in the slow cooker pour you ginger beer over till its completely covering the silverside and then cook on low for about 6-8 hours
I always cook my corned beef in the slow cooker but instead of water and cloves I use ginger beer and just quarter an onion.
It has a beautiful taste. :)

Murry Tart...corned beef in a crock pot. I have mixed views on. It is easy to overcook. I used to make them frequently when I worked and depending on the size it often became overcooked, sometimes they came out brilliantly. The cabbage, potatoes and carrots would always bee too salty and too overcooked.
But if you need to make it in the croc I would suggest doing it on a day when your length of time away would be limited to maybe five hours, just have to stick it with a fork and maybe take out the veggies earlier. Now i do mine on the stove top and put the veggies in later.

Dolmio pasta bake bechamel lasagne sauce = a white sauce like an alfredo. You can make your own white sauce too, I do and add garlic salt to it which is nice

Hungarian Goulash (american style Im told!)

1lb/450g stewing beef cut into 1" (2.5cm cubes)
1 medium onion - chopped
2 cloves garlic - chopped
2 tblsp oil
6 tsp paprika/smokey paprika
1 tsp salt
70z/200g can diced tomatoes
2-4 potatoes cut into chunks
1-2 cups of chicken/beef stock

Cut beef into 1"(2.5cm) cubes Chop onion and garlic - sautee onion and garlic then add beef and brown it. Put this into slow cooker and add all other ingredients, the amount stock will vary depending on your slow cooker, add enough to just cover meat. Mix well and set to cook, stir from time to time.

I served mine with green beans and german cabbage noodles (recipe in pasta section too) oh and I added herb dumplings to the goulash about 45mins prior to serving, they were delicous

German Cabbage & Noodles

1 medium or 1/2 large head of cabbage - chop coarsley
1 large onion chopped coarsley
3 rashers of bacon chopped coarsley
S&P to taste
8oz/250g flat egg noodles (fettucini noodles)

Select a med sized saucepan, saute onion and bacon, add the cabbage and season to taste, cover and cook until cabbage is soft stirring occasionally. Add the noodles to boiling water and cook until done, drain well. Pour the cabbage mix over the noodles and mix well, serve with lots of freshly ground black pepper.
