snopearl69 @ : Will I get sick from eating this?
I was trying to make some chicken curry in the slow cooker last night. A little over 2 hours into cooking (on low), I realized that I had added too much liquid, so I removed some and saved it in the fridge. This morning I used that liquid to thin out the curry a little. I just ate some an hour ago, but then I realized that maybe the liquid I stirred into it from last night had raw chicken bacteria in it??? I didn't let the curry keep cooking after thinning it out. Do you think it is safe to eat the way it is? I mean I already had some so I am concerned that I might get sick from it....

ivymcallister @ : Pork Burrito Bowls
Mondays and Thursdays are usually crock pot days. This means that on Monday and Thursday mornings, I decide what we're going to eat for the next couple days and fill the crock pot accordingly. Today, I'm making slow-cooked Pork Burrito Bowls.
It's really quite ridiculously easy. I forget where the recipe came from because I've modified it over time so that it's a bit less bland and inoffensive, as cookbook recipes often fear offending some random reader's delicate palate and so tend to err on the side of excessive caution where variety of ingredients and seasonings are concerned. ( Slow-Cooked Pork Burrito Bowls.Collapse )

aiwanakademie @ : Bean Recipes
In hopes of trying to cut my grocery bill, I want to convert to meals where I can buy suppies in bunk. I love beans and I can get beans at a fairly inexpensive price.
Can anyone recommend some filling bean crock pot dishes?
thanks - K.

shiromaguro @ :
I have a goat shoulder roast that I'd like to slow cook in my recently acquired crock pot. I don't know much about crock pot cooking, and even less about goat roasts. The one thing I do know is that it's lower in fat (3%, I think?) so that needs to be kept in mind while cooking.
I've only ever made lamb stews in a slow cooker, so I'm unsure how to deal with this shoulder roast. Do I need to put a lot of liquid in the cooker, or will it do with only a little broth? I'm planning on tossing in some carrots, potatoes, and celery, so I'm sure that will add to the moisture quantity. Having never cooked a roast in the crock pot, my biggest concern is puting enough liquid in to keep it from drying out. I'm going to be gone all day, so I'd like to cook it on low for eight or so hours.
Do any of you have any tips or advice for such an endeavor? Or for goat in general?
If this goes well, I'd like to try a curried goat roast in the crock pot next.

phaedrasdream @ : Chickpea Miso Soup
Last night, I put 2 quarts of water and a bunch of carrots, potatoes, leeks, and kale into my crock to make a nice broth. I strained it this morning. Yum!
I added a blend of canned chickpeas, cooked barley and miso (from the food processor) to the mix this afternoon with a couple of handfuls of brown rice.
It tastes good but VERY salty and VERY miso-y. Any suggestions for what I can do with it now? Is there anything I can add to tone down the miso? What should I serve it with?

tracied @ : dried bean question
I want to make a veggie soup in my crock and I want to use as the base, dried kidney and northern beans. Should I put the beans in to soak tonight overnight then add the veggies or do I just throw all the veggies in at once? I am going to be using the usual veggies plus some kale and red chard. Last time I used dried beans they will still hard 10 hours later. Any suggestions, or something I did wrong last time?
Thanks. I am going to go start soaking the beans in the meantime just in case.

princessbtrfly @ : cranberry-orange chicken
I made this yesterday and it was a hit! I'm getting the recipe from "Healthy Crockery Cookery" by Mable Hoffman
To reduce fat, remove and discard the skin from the chicken before cooking.
Makes about 6 servings
2 1/2 to 3 pounds chicken pieces (I used a little more than 2 1/2 lbs of boneless, skinless breasts)
1 (8 oz) can whole-berry cranberry sauce
2 TBS orange juice
1 tsp grated orange peel (I did not use an orange peel at all)
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1 TBS sweet-hot mustard
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
3 TBS cornstarch
3 TBS cold water
Rinse chicken and pat dry with paper towels. Place cut-up chicken in 3 1/2 qt slow cooker. In small bowl, combine cranberry sauce, orange juice and peel, nutmeg, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir until blended but not smooth. Pour over chicken. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 or 5 hours (I did 5) or until chicken is tender.
Remove chicken and keep warm. Turn control to HIGH. Disolve cornstarch in water. Stir into pot with juices. Cook on HIGH, stirring occasionally, 10 to 15 minutes or until thickened. Spoon over chicken.

some kind of shredded cheese
(monty jack ! works for me !)
add'l extras: if they are handily avlb (wink)

with a dollop of
sour cream or
sicy brown mustard

this is a great snack or substitute dinner
if you don't mind the grease from the sausage patties -which i suppose you could brown and drain beforehand but that grease may be the only liquid in the crock after the eggs set !

glamorousdiva @ :
Could someone give me some ideas or recipes on what to do with some Egg Noodles? I found a package I had, but it was almost a year old, so I threw it out, I had never opened it, but ewww, I did not want to eat something that old. I brought a new package today. I found a recipe I thought we would like last night, but now I am not so sure, so does anyone have any new ideas? Anyway, if anyone has ideas please help!! :-)

glamorousdiva @ :
Is it okay to put a roast in a crockpot the night before and let it cook all night? I got to work at 9:00 a.m. and I get home at 4:00 p.m. but if I stick it in from a Frozen State is it okay, to do that, and then put it in the night before I want to eat it, or should I wait until the morning of the day I want to eat it, around 8:00 a.m.,if I do that, should it be thawed out? Let me know if you can!! Thankyou!

bdspitapit31 @ : Ideas?
I'm getting over a week-long sickness (nothing left but fatigue and the sniffles), and I'm thinking it would be nice to have a good-smelling, warm apartment with a nice meal waiting on me when I got home from work tomorrow. (First full day back since Tues.) I'd prefer not to go and get anything... is there anything I can make with any combination of:( list of things I think I could throw in a crock potCollapse )
It's okay if there's preparation involved, as long as I could basically have it ready tonight and dump the whole mixture in the crockpot before I leave tomorrow. I can put it on low, but even still, I'll be gone for 10 hours.
I know that's not a lot of beef but it's just me this week. Leftovers are okay.

kiwi @ : Hello, crockpot fans!
First off, I'm posting this message to all of my communities, so my apologies to those who belong to more than one who will get this message more than once.
Welcome to any and all new members!
I have not been around much or keeping up with the things that need to be done within a community, and for that I apologize. Right now, I'm balancing some rough times in the work place, the slow beginning of the packing to move routine, and most recently and most icky...having to deal with cockroaches in my apartment. (EWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!) However, the exterminator is coming this week, the meetings will be done mid-week, and some personal issues will have been resolved (at least a little) by this weekend, so I will be back on top of these communities and will make things pretty and happy all around.
That said, have a lovely week and please, feel free to keep this community alive and buzzing. :)
