Crockpot Meals

I've fixed a couple of very easy crockpot meals lately and I thought I would share the recipes.


4 or 5 pork chop (thicker cuts work better)
1 large onion (chopped into large pieces)
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup

Rinse pork chops and trim off any fat. Put the chopped onions in the crockpot first. Lay pork chops on top. Stir together onion soup mix and cream of mushroom soup in a bowl, then pour over the pork chops. Cook 7-8 hours on Low. This makes a yummy gravy. Serve over rice.

This turned out SO good and very tender. It didn't even taste like pork chops to me...more like round steak.


Chicken (can use boneless or not...any pieces...I use whole breasts)
1 large onion, (chopped into large pieces)
Potatoes (new potatoes, regular potatoes cut into large chunks, or canned potatoes all work well)
Carrots (peeled and sliced into large pieces)
Salt & Pepper
Tony Chachere's seasoning

Dump potatoes, onions and carrots into the crockpot. Stir to mix. Pour in about a cup of water. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Lay the chicken on top and sprinkle it with the Tony Chachere's. Cook for 7-8 hours on Low.

We love this and it smells so good while it's cooking all day. After you take out the meat and veggies, save the broth. You can freeze it to use later.*

*Here is a tip about chicken broth: Freeze it in an ice tray, then pop out and store in a freezer bag. When you need chicken broth, you can just take out what you need.
