Welcome to week one of my crock pot challenge. I have made a vow to use my crock pot at least twice a week. I am sharing that challenge with all of you. Now, you don't have use your crock pot twice if you don't want - even just once is enough. The goal is to make dinnertime easier!
I will post my recipes here. You can grab the button from the side and post about it on your site. Then link back here. Hopefully we can share some great recipes and have some easy, yummy dinner ideas.
Here are my recipes for this week:
2 lbs chuck roast cut into 2-3 inch cubes
Approx. 6 oz of uncooked wide egg noodles
16 oz can of condensed mushroom soup
8 oz can beef broth, fill empty can with warm water and add to crock pot
4 oz sour cream
1 tsp salt, pepper to taste
In crock pot add meat cubes, salt and pepper, and then uncooked noodles on top of meat. Then add beef broth, water, sour cream, and mushroom soup. Cook on medium heat for at least 6 hours, covered. There is no need to stir or mix ingredients. The soup, broth & water will make a tasty broth with the sour cream, meat and noodles.
Make sure to put the meat and noodles in the crock pot first so that they can absorb the sauce and cook evenly. You could also substitute the chuck roast for 8 oz of frozen meatballs.
1 lb chicken breast (can still be frozen)
1 jar of salsa
taco shells (hard or soft)
whatever else your family enjoys for taco fixings
Put the chicken breasts in the crock pot. They can still be frozen. Cover then with salsa. You don't have to use the whole jar - just make sure that they are covered well. Let them cook all day (8-10 hours). At the end of that time, you can shred then with a fork. They should be tender and come right apart. Use the shredded chicken as the filling in your taco shells. Add whatever your family enjoys on their tacos.
What are you making this week in your crock pot?
