    kiwidutch, my crockpot cookbook has several lamb recipes. Would you like me to post them for you?

    Stroganoff, curry, cassolet, stew... I think you could do anything with lamb that you would with beef.

    I have been using a Crock Pot for 25+ years... and finally the glass cover broke and I also had the electrical cord taped. So it was time for a new Crock Pot, a 5 Qt Rival.

    I made a beef stew with veggies and it came out very cook. However, the flour in the recipe made clean up of the stoneware pot a little difficult. For my next recipe (below) I used Pam cooking spray to coat the pot... Is this always necessary with a stoneware pot?

    My second recipe was cut up chicken with veggies and the little book that came with the Crock Pot said low heat 10 hours.
    For my old Crock Pot I knew that I should not cook chicken to long. But I decided to follow the time in the book. It turned out to be incorrect, big time. Way over cooked.

    BTW, I always open the Crock Pot and stir briefly during the cooking process.. for the Chicken recipe above, I did this two times... And I do know that doing so might require longer cooking times for some recipes.

    For the most part I have only used the Crock Pot for beef, chicken, curry stews... and soup once in a while. But now that I have a new one, I should look into many other recipes. Rival's web site has some nice recipes and pictures as well.

    Crock Pot, Lazy Man's Cooking, but oh so good!

    My niece just got married and started her first teaching job this year, while her husband finishes his last year of college to become a pharmacist...I sent her these links to help her get started with crock pot cooking. These are step by step main meal, dessert, etc. recipes. Plus a link to show how to clean them.

    Oh yeah....and now she's pregnant...pretty amazing icon_biggrin.gif considering she had lukemia as a child!!!!!

    I just started really using my crock pot. In fact mine is similar to the pic you have here. I decided to stick with the Crock Pot original brand because after purchasing another brand, I noticed that the construction of it and the pots in other brands were substandard. I lifted them out and examined them when I returned the one that looked so wonderful.
    Others had interesting features and accessories but if you check the bottom of the pot there are chips and you can plainly see the construction is inferior. The original Crock Pot brand is sealed on the bottom.
    What I love about it now is that I have discovered, (now don't laugh!) that between the crock pot, my stove, oven, and convection oven I can accomplish so much in a lot less time!
    I never really paid much attention to the old one I had. I eventually lost the cover and that was the end of that.
    This one is so much nicer because I can remove the oval bowl and wash it without all the messy inconvenience. And I don't need to peak because the cover is clear and the roast I made in it last week looked so beautiful with the sauteed onions and mushrooms on top! Oh she was lovely! icon_smile.gif For liquid I used broth from a beef stew I made! Tastelicious!
    I LOVE MY CROCK POT NOW! We are beginning a wonderful new relationship. And I am going to check out this forum one by one while I have my coffee! Afterall, it is Saturday morning and I deserve a break!

    Try buying a crock pot on the European mainland-they don't exist! Living in Denmark I finally found one in England and had to buy electrical adapter to use here. As I am originally from NC I use mine to make the closest thing I can get to NC barbecue. I would be lost without it! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    Holey Camole! What are you doing so far away from home?
    I love NC! I'll bet you really miss home and not having to use an adaptor! Yikes!
    I have been collecting rib sauces and rubs here at Zaar! Excellent and so many! Yum!

    Denmark has been "home" since 1994. Last trip to NC was in 2006. I had lots of BBQ then as you can imagine. This year a friend brought me 2 bottles of Bessinger's SC BBQ sauce which I really enjoyed. The crock pot makes reasonable substitute for BBQ and occasionally friends from NC will bring me a pound or two of the real stuff.

    Two of my kids live in in Huntersville and one in Concord. They love it there! This past fall they enjoyed the Renaissance Fair! The economy is really getting bad though. I sure hope that things change when Obama takes over and if we are very lucky over here he will start the revamping of the US economy and all our other jobs that are all sent overseas...
    I love my crock pot! I have found so many great recipes here at Zaar! I made a pot roast in mine that was to die for! #160202
    Well, take care! Tell me about Denmark! I have never been there! What do they enjoy eating there?

    What a great basic tips and review article! I've been crock pot cooking since the seventies, and got a lot of new tips, such as always browning the meat -- and the vegetables! Thanks a lot. I'm cooking mainly in an RV and sometimes just for two, and sometimes for a big group -- your tips are a great help. Thanks!!
