    I call it a BBQ pot roast. Marinate the roast overnight in root beer and a little liquid smoke. Transfer the meat and juice into the crock pot the following morning and let it cook all day. That evening, I separate the juice and meat, the cats get the juice and we add some bbq sauce to the meat and it’s yummy! If my memory serves me right, I got that recipe from you!

  2. Debbie Caraballo says

    I make lots of crockpot dishes – just made some beef stew, which is always good. So I’ll just say that “Soups” are my go-to meal for my crockpots!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

    My go to crock pot dish is chicken with lemon pepper, potatoes and carrots. Noting better than coming home from a long day of work and having dinner ready for you.

    Oh, that roast looks so good! One simple crockpot recipe that my grandkids really go for is the one for chicken tacos.
    Really it is a method more than a recipe. I use boneless chicken breasts, my own low sodium taco seasoning mixture, salsa. Once the chicken is done and shredded I often add black beans. Serve with favorite taco fixings.

    Chicken Soup (noodleless)
    3 frozen chicken breasts
    16 oz bag of baby carrots
    2 stalks of celery
    1 tbsp of chicken base
    4 cups of water
    Spices of your choice
    I use sage, garlic, onion, and basil. Sometimes I add pesto instead. Cook on high in the crockpot for 4-5 hours, depending on how tender you like your carrots.

  8. Carolee Vakil-Jessop says

    My go to crockpot meal is pot roast. It’s so nice to come home from church and smell it cooking away in the crockpot! Yummy!!

  9. Stacey Holder says

    Pork loin

    Rub with olive oil, season with salt & pepper. Cook on low 6-7 hours or if frozen 10-12 hours. I make a BBQ sauce by mixing a homemade a1 sauce, honey, & a bottled BBQ sauce, heat in microwave and pour over sliced pork.

  10. Angie says

    My go to crock pot meal is a taco soup that I make. I haven’t had the best luck with cooking roasts, so perhaps this cookbook will help with that!
