I made this for dinner tonight and it was quite good. I did add more garlic and also rosemary and thyme to add a little more flavor and because both of those herbs mix so nicely with red wine in cooking. I also used extra onions and mushrooms. Feel free to experiment with seasonings and veggies though the recipe as is is more classic. This is an extremely simple recipe for an old classic and practically foolproof. Your crockpot may cook slower or quicker though, so be aware of that.
I found this recipe on the Budget Savvy Diva site and it has been saving me tons of time (and stess) for the past few weeks! And like she said in the blog, the cream cheese makes all the difference. I can't wait to make this for our huge Thanksgiving dinner so I can focus on other recipes.
This delightful tummy pleaser is from my GF via Finecooking.com. There are two tricks to this recipe: browning the veal shanks before they go into the slow cooker and reducing the sauce before serving. The result is an osso buco you’d be hard-pressed to distinguish from the labor-intensive classic. Prep time includes prep and browning until it is all assembled in the slow cooker. Enjoy!
This was Great... would suggest to toss the rice in last after chicken has been cooking a while... I prefer not so mushy rice! To each his own... if you prefer mushy rice put it all together. I also omit the peas (peas are yucky-lol :).
Great to have on-hand for recipes. Just Place as many chicken breasts as you can fit into your crock pot as long as the lid fits on properly. I use bone-in, skin-on but I'm sure boneless, skinless would work too.
Crook's Corner is a restaurant in Chapel Hill, NC. This is a dish served at the restaurant and I found the recipe in the latest Southern Living magazine. I made this last night for dinner and my husband and I went nuts for it, it's the ultimate comfort food. Don't let the long list of ingredients throw you off, this goes together quickly and easily.

Since posting this recipe I again made it for supper one night. The tip roast did not turn out tender at all...as a caution I would make this with a chuck roast or other cut of beef that will turn out tender *updated 2/4/08*
**Thanks to Internetnut for the missing ingredients - don't know how I skipped those but she is correct*** Added 2/20/09
Easy, filling, low fat and low calorie! What more could you ask of a recipe? Adjust the spice factor according to your family's likes by omitting the chiles (in tomato mixture) or adding some chopped jalapenos.
Put this recipe together when I was having a buffet style dinner for family birthday party. I had a bottle of maple syrup that was just craving to be put in something. Everyone loved it so decided to post.
