    Default Crockpot Recipes for Nights When You Ride

    Maybe I should be saving this for an Off-Topic Day, I'm not entirely sure.

    Does anyone have some shorter (3-4 hours = length of time at barn) crockpot recipes they would recommend for those cold winter nights I head out to the barn after a day at work? My schedule usually means that I run home after work to pick up the dog before heading out to ride and today I was thinking about how great it would be if I could toss some food in the crockpot at that time, also, so that I had a yummy dinner to come home to. I'm never running on-time enough to do this in the morning, which is why I am looking for "barntime length" recipes. And, if you can keep 'em under 500cal, I'll love you even more!

    I generally do slow cooker in the AM when I am showing or having a barn party! My fav source is the "Cook It and Forget It" series. (I usually use the Lightly version.)
    Lots of great recipes, and so far my barn party "guinea pigs" have loved them too! (Shhhhh! Don't tell them, LOL!)

    I have Fix It and Forget It Lightly also, pretty good.

    You certainly 'can' throw canned stuff in to heat while you are gone, like spaghetti sauce, canned soup, beans & weenies. put the weenies in first so they cook through. I'd stay away from using raw meat if it will only have 3 hours, even on high.

    Just about anything you would make in the oven or pressure cooker can be done in the crockpot, so what do you usually cook?

    One of my favorites in the crock pot-kinda a twist on roast & potatoes. Cut up a few sausage links, ad 1 package dried fruit (I like apples and apricots, but anything would do), some red onion and a potato or 2. Sprinkle with basil, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Ad a cup of water. Yummy if you like sweeter type things.
    Do not toy with the dragon, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup!

    I have been known to put the stuff together the night before and cook it overnight. Then I only have to reheat before dinner. Or put it together the night before and let it cook all day on low. Life is so easy with a crock pot (I actually have two and have used them both together!)

    I love my crock pot. Many of the recipes say to set it on low for 8-10 hours or high for 4-5 hours, so you should be able to adapt for your schedule. The great thing about the crock pot is that you can't overcook. If you go for 12 hours you most likely will not ruin the dish.

    To keep it horse related: The crock pot definitely helps manage time to be able to ride.

    Here's an easy one:

    1 Boston Butt - or whatever cut of beef "roast" you like
    1 jar of Dill Pickles

    1. Place roast in Crock Pot.
    2. Dump entire jar of Dill Pickles over meat.
    3. Turn on Crock pot to low and cook for 6 hours or so.
    4. Take meat out and shred with fork.
    5. Place on buns, and top with Cole Slaw.
    6. Spread BBQ Sauce on Buns.
    7. Enjoy.

    I also LOVE cooking chicken in the crock pot. I throw about 4 or 5 FROZEN chicken breasts in the crock pot, and then just add whatever I have on hand. Sometimes it's chicken noodle soup, sometimes it's a Mexican soup, sometimes it's creamy pasta and chicken, or you can just go healthy and have chicken, broth and veggies. After about 4 or 5 hours, I shred the chicken with two forks and add it back in for another hour. It's ALWAYS good.

    Make chili up the night before, I have a removable insert for my crockpot so I just make the stuff up stick it in fridge then plug it in the next day.
    You could plug it in and turn on medium when you take care of the dog before heading to the barn.

    This recipe for crockpot chicken and dumplings is one of my favorites:

    http://allrecipes.com//Recipe/slow-c...gs/Detail.aspx

    If you use chicken cutlets instead of halved breasts, it can easily be done in 4 hours instead of 5-6. I like to use cream of celery soup instead of cream of chicken, and I add a tiny bit of sage too. It's SO good.

    I've done this one in a crock pot, but I cooked the ground beef the night before:

    Southwestern Black Bean Stew
    http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Southwe...ew/Detail.aspx

    And I strongly (very strongly) recommend using the following for the taco seasoning, which I don't use when browning the meat but rather just dump in and stir since it is after all a soup... :

    Thumbs up

    This is one of my favorites. It's not original with me and I'm afraid I don't know who came up with it.

    Greek Chicken Stew

    Spray crockpot with vegetable spray. Place four chicken breasts inside, pour in 2 cans of stewed tomatoes, 1 can of artichoke hearts and 20 pitted kalamata olives. Cover and cook for 4 or 6 hours.

    Serve on couscous (takes 5 minutes) and sprinkle with feta cheese.

    Toss a chuck roast (can cut it into smaller hunks for faster cooking if you want to) into the pot, add a can of cream of mushroom soup and a package of dried onion soup mix. I've done it in 4 hours, just gets more tender the longer it cooks. Makes it's own gravy, too.
