    To Die For Crockpot Roast
    by yooper

    Got this one off of Recipegoldmine.com. It's all the rage there so I thought I'd try it. Amazing flavor, and so simple! No salt needed here, in fact, you may wish to use half the Ranch dressing mix to cut back on the saltiness.

    ingredients:

    1 beef roast, any kind
    1 package dried brown gravy mix
    1 package dried Italian salad dressing mix
    1 package dried ranch dressing mix
    1/2 cup water

    directions:

    1. Place beef roast in crockpot.
    2. Mix the dried mixes together in a bowl and sprinkle over the roast.
    3. Pour the water around the roast.
    4. Cook on low for 7-9 hours.

    Irish Stew
    by Derf

    This is comfort food. Serve with Irish soda bread and a mix of carrots and peas. This stew can also be cooked in a crockpot, layer the same and cook on low for 8 hours.

    ingredients:

    2 lbs boned lamb or beef, sliced, 1/4 inch slices (Lamb is traditional)
    2 lbs peeled potatoes, thinly sliced (a mandolin slicer works best)
    3 large onions, thinly sliced
    salt and pepper, each layer to taste
    2 tablespoons fresh parsley
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    13 ounces water

    directions:

    1. Trim the meat, leaving a little of the fat and slice.
    2. Season the meat and veggies with salt, pepper, 2 teaspoons of parsley and the thyme.
    3. Layer the potatoes, meat and onions in a large casserole, starting and finishing with a layer of potatoes.
    4. Add the water and cover tightly.
    5. Cook in a preheated oven at 275 degrees for 2 1/2 hours, shake occasionally to prevent sticking, and check liquid now and then.
    6. Do not add unless absolutly necessary.
    7. The potatoes will thicken the finished stew so it should not be too runny.
    8. Just before serving, remove lid and brown the top under a hot broiler and sprinkle with remaining parsley.
    9. The potatoes on top should be nice and brown and crisp.

    1/2 teaspoon baking soda

    directions:

    1. Mix oil, eggs and mashed bananas.
    2. Combine remaining ingredients and add to banana mixture.
    3. Bake in a 9 x 5 x 3 inch pan at 325 degrees for 1 hour (if you are following the recipe, there is no need to grease the pan.)

    Crockpot Cola Ham
    by Crimsonvixen7

    A popular, easy, and flavorful way to cook a small ham for the holidays, a dinner party or to have ham for sandwhiches, soups or casseroles.

    ingredients:

    3-4 lbs fully cooked boneless ham
    1/2 cup packed brown sugar
    1 tablespoon mustard
    2 cans Coca-Cola

    directions:

    1. Remove ham from packaging.
    2. Lightly score ham in diagonal lines first one way, then crosswise, to form a diamond pattern, being careful not to cut any deeper than about a eighth of an inch.
    3. (You can score both sides if you like) Make a paste of brown sugar and mustard (I used Boar's Head Honey Mustard).
    4. Rub paste into ham on sides that have been lightly scored.
    5. Transfer to crock pot.
    6. Pour in two cans of coca cola into bottom of pot, not pouring directly over ham to wash away brown sugar paste.
    7. Cook on low 7-8 hours.
