Saint, it's called "Fix It And Forget It Cookbook: Feasting with your Slow Cooker" by Dawn J Ranck & Phyllis Pellmann Good
There's probably 750 recipes in there (3 per page, and about 250 pages of 'em)
We've made TONS of recipes from this book, and none are too involved or have too many ingredients (at least the stuff we've made), mebbe 10 ingredients at the most (not including water or salt & pepper to taste
Here's some easy standby's we often turn to from that book:Shipwreck
1 lb browned ground beef
4-5 potatoes, cut into French Fry sized strips
1-2 onions, chopped
16 oz can light red kidney beans, drained
1/4 lb Velveeta, cubed
10 oz can tomato soup
Layer in slow cooker in this order:
Pour soup over the top, season with salt and pepper and dot with butter
Cover - cook on low 6-8 hoursTater Tot Casserole
32 oz bag of frozen tater tots
1 lb browned ground beef
29 oz of green beans (they say use 2 cans, I prefer a bag of frozen)
10 oz can of cream of mushroom soup
1 TBSP dried onions
1/4 cup of milk
Line the slow cooker with the tater tots, combine everything else and pour over the tater tots. They say to cover and cook on high for 3 hours, but we often just throw it on low and cook it for 5-6 hours.Ham N Coke
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp horseradish
1 can of Coke
3-4 lb pre-cooked ham
Combine first 3 ingredients, and add just enough Coke to make a paste.
Rub the entire ham with the mixture and put in the slow cooker. Add the rest of the can of Coke.
Cover and cook on low at least 6 hours - you need a thermometer to check this one for doneness. Interior temp should AT LEAST be 140, we cook it to 150-160, which usually equates out to about 8 hours or more. What you can do as well is to cook it on low while you're at work, and when you get home, turn it up to high until it hits temp.
To make it a meal type thing, we throw in some pearl onions at the beginning, and when we get home, we'll throw in a bag of frozen corn and frozen peas when we first check the temp and just cook 'em on high then.Pizza Rice
2 cups of rice, uncooked
3 cups of whatever pizza sauce (or chunky-type spaghetti sauce)
2 1/2 cups of water
7 oz can of mushrooms (I think that's the small can)
4 oz of sliced pepperoni or sausage (brown the sausage if necessary)
Add all ingredients, stir until mixed
Cover, cook on Low10 hours or on High for 6 hours.
Sprinkle with grated cheese when serving
And lastly, the bomb-diggety of soupsChicken Tortilla Soup
4 chicken breast halves, cubed.
30 oz undrained black beans
30 oz mexican stewed tomatoes (or Rotel tomatoes)
1 cup Salsa
4 oz green chilies
14 oz tomato sauce
Cook the chicken in a skillet until just done. If a piece is pink inside, that's perfect. Combine all ingredients except the chips. Cover and cook on Low 8 hours.
This can be served two ways. The way I prefer is to throw the chips in about an hour or so before you're done cooking the soup, or you can put the chips in your bowl and cover with soup.
Either way, top with some grated cheese like Monterey Jack.
