Mondays with Martha: Crock-pot Recipes

I can tell this is going to be one of those days of non-stop activity around here, so the post I plan to do on travel tips will have to wait. If you're having one of those Monday kind of Mondays, here are a couple of very simple Crock-pot recipes to help you out:

This first one is courtesy of a facebook friend of a facebook friend. We had it last week, and it was very good!

BBQ Pork Sandwiches

pork loin
jar of bbq sauce
bottle of beer

Put ingredients in Crock-pot and cook on high for about 5 hours, or low for about 6-8. Shred and serve on sandwiches, or just plain next to some potatoes.

Mexican Slop

Chicken, uncooked (fresh, frozen, bone in or out, whatever is fine)
1 can of beans, drained
1 jar of salsa
1 can of corn, drained

Cook on high for 3 hours or low for about 5. Shred chicken and serve on rice or tortillas. Top with cheese.

Taco Soup

1 can/bottle of tomato juice
1 lb. ground beef, cooked and crumbled
1 pkg. taco seasoning
1 can beans, drained
1 can corn, drained

Cook on low for 4 hours. Top with tortilla chips and grated cheese.

  1. The best thing about that pork recipe is that you still have five beers left over. What ever will you do with them? :) (Just kidding--they all sound great!)
