Crockpot/Slow Cooker Recipies?

Im discovering this as a hassle free way of making an extra meal for the week. (I cook several meals during the day on sunday to eat throughout the week, just helps me multitask better). Does anyone else use one of these? Im trying to get better acquainted with it.

I've used slow cookers are great for making stews and soups. I'd just throw whatever veggies I had in the crock with some broth, spices, and lentils before work and come home to a few days worth of nice soup.

Also great for slow braising meat (short ribs browned in a pan then braised in a beer or wine-based braising liquid are easy and amazing).

Pork and sauerkraut is good, as is corned beef, beef stew and chicken soup to name a few.

honestly, I don't think I've ever used a real recipe with my slow cooker...but I just checked my bookmarks and had this in there:

http://chezmrecipes.blogspot.com/200...hort-ribs.html

never made it, but sounds good (though a little labor-intensive for a crock pot recipe)

edit: just realized I posted the wrong link. This is what I meant to post:

Could you give a baseline recipie for what you did? It doesnt need to be glamourous, I just have never utilized one and really dont know how. I tried to make a soup but the meat disintegrated...

for a veggie soup I would just throw onions, garlic, celery, carrots, lentils, some tomatoes, and whatever else I had around into the slow cooker. Put enough broth too make sure things don't dry out, then throw in whatever seasoning you want.

Then, before you're going to eat, maybe throw in some other beans, frozen peas, fresh veggies, spinach, whatever...anything you wouldn't have wanted to cook for so long. Let it all get hot, then eat.

Im actually an adamant carnavore. I honestly think there isnt a meal where there isnt meat or some animal product in it. I balance it but just saying. Think baking chicken breasts and tossing them in with the frozen stuff is the way to go? Or what. Also, how long did you leave it and at what temp/level.

Simple, easy, delicious. Do some research on which cut of the meat is the best, I think I remember hearing that anything with "blade" in the title is good for pot roast and its cheap as hell when its on sale. You can also add whatever veges you are partial to, and potatoes.

My crockpot cooks way hotter than the one used for this recipe, so I usually do low for 4 to 6 hours so the meat is still very soft and red in the middle.

My Simple Pork Chile Verde:
3-4 lbs pork loin roast cubed.
Sautee with Cumin, Chili Powder, Cayenne, oregano, garlic (enough to coat the meat)
Toss it all in a crockpot with 1 diced onion, 3 diced jalapenos, 1 bunch chopped cilantro, 1 jar of store bought Salsa Verde, juice of 1 lime, SPTT

Sometimes I add 1 can of diced green chillis and/or 1 can of diced tomatos

i dont do much crockpot cooking unless im making like a beef stew. i usually cook things in a pan or stockpot then transfer them into a crockpot for holding.

As a snack you can make a really good Buffalo Chicken Dip in your slow cooker.

Melt 2 packages of cream cheese
Add two large cans of chopped chicken
1 packet ranch seasoning
1 bottle of franks red hot

mix it all together and dip with chips
