4 crock pot recipes I loved to cook this summer

Summer is a wonderful time to cook using a Crock-pot. Even though its hot outside, you still have to eat food don’t you? You can order food every now and then, but it can be quite expensive if you have to do it every day. That’s why I have put together this list of some of the easiest Crockpot recipes out there today. All of these recipes are easy to make and taste quite nice

1. Barbecued Chicken & Vegetables

Ingredients 

2.5 lbs. chicken thighs (boneless and skinless)

1 cup barbecue sauce

1/2 cup water

4 potatoes (unpeeled and cut in eighths)

8 carrots (split in two)

Directions 

You first layer he carrots and potatoes in the bottom of the crock pot. Then place the chicken on top. Pour water over these ingredients and then spread the sauce over the chicken using a brush. Cover the Crockpot and cook it for around eight hours on the low setting or until the chicken and the vegetables are tender.

2. Swiss Steak

Ingredients

2 lbs. steak (3/4 inches thick)

15 oz. tomato sauce

1 celery stalk (sliced)

1 carrot (chopped)

1 onion (sliced)

1 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/4 cup flour

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Directions 

Take a medium bowl and combine the salt, flour and pepper. Cut the steak into serving sized pieces. Add the steaks into the flour mixture one at a time. At the bottom of the crockpot, add the onions, sauce, meat, carrots, Worcestershire sauce and celery. Then cover it and cook for ten hours on low. My husband called Swiss steak the best crock pot recipe he ever came across, and that means something, trust me.

3. Cheese Ravioli & Sausages

9 oz. cheese ravioli

You need to first mix the sausage with the tomatoes and the spaghetti sauce in the Crockpot. Then cover the Crockpot and cook it on low for seven hours. Then you need to mix in the ravioli and cover it and cook for another thirty minutes. Then you have to turn off the cooker and top the food with the cheese and replace the cover. Let it be for another 5 or 10 minutes until the cheese melts and it’s ready to eat.
