Course: Sandwiches
Cuisine: American
Servings: 12
Calories: 265 kcal
Ingredients
  • 3 ½ pound pork roast
  • ½ cup beef broth
  • 2 cups Bob Evans Wildfire BBQ Sauce
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic peeled and chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 12 hamburger buns
Instructions
  1. Mix together the chili powder, kosher salt and black pepper Season the pork roast with all of the spices.
  2. Put the chopped onion and the chopped garlic in the bottom of a slow cooker or crockpot. Put the seasoned roast on top of the onions.
  3. Whisk together the barbecue sauce and beef broth. Pour the mixture over the meat, cover the pot, and cook on low for 6 hours.
  4. The meat should be tender enough to shred with a fork. Take apart all the meat, then mix it with the cooking juices. Pile the shredded meat on the buns and serve with extra barbecue sauce on the side.

Great BBQ Pulled Pork Recipe!

Good To Know – The pork shoulder or butt is the best cut for this recipe. The meat is more flavorful than the loin or chops, and the fat adds to the moisture. If your slow cooker is too small for the roast, cut it in half or in pieces.

Food For Thought – If you can’t locate Bob Evans Wildfire BBQ sauce, use your favorite – a spicy-style sauce would go well with the chili powder in this recipe.

Add a few dashes of your favorite hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco, some crushed red chili flakes, and 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to give the meat a generous kick of heat.

Split Pea Soup With Ham And Potatoes

I love this time of year because I can make soups and stews all winter long. This Split Pea Soup With Ham And Potatoes is right up at the top of my favorite soups to make.

 

My mom made split pea soup in the crockpot when I was a kid and I have always loved it. I think it was one of her best leftover ham ideas!

Making Split Pea Soup

I used to make it very smooth and well blended with an immersion blender but I now like eating it with chunks of ham, carrots, and potatoes.

It’s really hard to believe that anything this easy can be SOOOO Good! TASTE is what it’s all about! A really quick and easy recipe that’s perfect for lunch or dinner.

The corn was an afterthought but it adds such a nice contrast of texture and taste that I will include it from now on. I’m sold! (Be sure to use the one with the peppers!)

I made this version for friends and there was very little left, so be sure to make a double batch if you expect leftovers!

Did I mention that I LOVE split pea soup? It really reminds me of my childhood and my Mother. She would always make it when there was leftover ham… yum.

Give it a try and I think you’ll agree that it’s one of the best recipes using leftover ham!

French Dip Crock Pot Recipe

This French Dip Crock Pot Recipe is VERY good. I always consider this a treat when getting it at restaurants, and now I can make it at home!

 

The au jus is excellent.

Never have I eaten a more tender roast beef sandwich.

I used split Kaiser rolls with a slice of American cheese on each and put them in the oven for about 10 minutes on 375. Then I piled on the sliced meat and served with the au jus. Just wonderful.

Crockpot Red Beans & Rice – Crescent City Style

Crockpot Red Beans & Rice is Great Stuff! The family can’t get enough of this and I can’t get over just how easy it is!

 

Just the right dish for easy overnight and morning prep, long slow cooking while we were at work/school, and simple finishes before dinner.

Mom and Pop restaurants in New Orleans always serve Red Beans & Rice on Monday. Always!

This is a take on the restaurant version changed a bit to reflect the fact that I use my crockpot now. I hope you enjoy these yummy beans as much as I do.

Serve over hot, fluffy white rice and a warm piece of buttered and grilled French bread with a side salad or bowl of coleslaw.

Sweet iced tea rounds this awesome southern dish off quite nicely.

Crock Pot Red Beans & Rice that could be from the heart of the Crescent City. Delicious!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Creole
Keyword: Crock Pot Red Beans & Rice
Servings: 6
Ingredients
Ingredients
  • 1 lb dried kidney beans I prefer the pink ones to the dark red ones
  • 1 ham hock optional
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper fresh ground
  • 1 tablespoon chicken stock powdered
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried chipotle powder I use one Knorr mini cube (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke optional
  • 2 -3 bay leaves
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 -2 tablespoon salt according to your taste
  • 1 -2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning Tony Cacheres and Zatarains brand are both very good
  • 1 ⁄4 cup butter
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce Chipotle flavored is really nice
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch or 2 tablespoons cornflour
  • 1 lb smoked sausage
Instructions
Directions
  1. These directions are long because I am covering the method quite thoroughly for new-comers.
  2. SOAK BEANS: On Sunday night (or the night before you want to eat these yummy beans), check beans to be sure there are no stones then place beans in a large bowl and fill almost to the top with water. It's better to have too much water than not enough. The beans will more than double in size overnight. In the morning, I drain beans in a colander and rinse well.
  3. A FEW PERSONAL TRICKS: One of the first things I do in the morning is fill my Crockpot with hot tap water just to bring it up to temperature much faster. This saves on cooking time and electricity. I also fill and boil my electric jug (or kettl- this is the water I will use to cook my beans.
  4. PLACE IN CROCKPOT: Beans, ham hock, black pepper, chicken stock powder, chopped garlic, garlic salt, bay leaves, and optional Chipotle powder and liquid smoke. Note: Save adding salt until the end of cook time.
  5. COVER WITH HOT WATER: Cover beans with hot water from your jug or kettle just until fully covered. Then add an extra inch of water on top of that. This will give your beans a chance to swell even more during cooking. Cover Crockpot with lid.
  6. QUICKLY: Sauté onions and bell-pepper just until they begin to cook. Add these to the beans and stir.
  7. COOK: If you are going to be gone all day, cook beans on low setting for 6 to 8 hours. If you will be around to stir, etc., I recommend cooking them on high until they are almost fully cooked (about 4 or 5 hours). Then turn them down to low for the last bit of cooking.
  8. ONCE COOKED: When beans are fully cooked, remove bay leaves (if you can find them aladd butter and stir. To thicken beans, add 2 tablespoons corn flour mixed with just enough cold water to dissolve it. Add this to beans and stir for a minute. Beans should thicken a bit in fairly short order. Repeat until you get the desired consistency.
  9. ADD: Add salt by half-teaspoon until you reach the level of your liking. It may not take much for you. Also add a bit more fresh ground pepper.
  10. NOW: Put your rice on to cook. Slice smoked sausage and cook in a medium-hot cast iron skillet until nicely brown and starting to emit those nice juices. Take skillet off heat but leave sausages where they are. Don't cover.
  11. RINSE your rice with hot water. Once drained, place about half a cup of hot fluffy rice in a wide, shallow bowl.
  12. COVER rice with a generous amount of red beans. Top with a good amount of hot smoked sausage slices.
  13. SPRINKLE with hot sauce and/or more Tony's if you want it spicy like I do.
  14. SERVE with hot buttered, grilled slices of French bread, salad or coleslaw, and a big glass of iced tea.

My Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce

This is a Crockpot Spaghetti Sauce recipe that has been developed over time. My crockpot is my best friend at times when I’m having busy days at work.

 

Busy days or not I still want a decent meal on the table for my family.

This recipe is for a 4-quart crockpot, halve it if your pot is smaller.

You may alter the ground meat as you please; sometimes I use all ground beef when I find a good sale but half beef/half pork is pretty tasty.

I serve spaghetti with crusty bread and a romaine salad.

Crock Pot Caramelized Onions

I like to make a batch of these Crock Pot Caramelized Onions overnight to use in whatever I’m cooking the next day. The smell of the onions is great!

 

The smell of the onions slowly caramelizing overnight lends to very sweet dreams!

These are fantastic! You can squish them down into an ice cube tray sprayed with oil and freeze them. Pop them out and store them in a freezer bag.

They thaw out perfectly.

They also make great onion soup! After the onions are caramelized add 4 cans of beef broth, some thyme, and a little bit of dry sherry.

Serve with the usual crouton and Swiss melted on the top. Super!

The secret is the broiler time. That browning makes all the difference.
