Slow-Cooker Flank Steak over Pasta

Mmmmmmmmm. This dish reminds me of the beef stroganoff recipe on here, but it's still different, and super delicous.... plus easy of course, because I only make easy recipes. :) This is another one from Spark Recipes.

2 lbs of flank steak
1 can red-fat cream of mushroom soup
1 can red-fat tomato soup
1 pkg (1 oz) dry onion soup mix
4 tsp Worcestershire sauce

Put steak in crock pot. In a bowl, mix together remaining ingredients. Pour over steak. Cook on low 8-10 hours. When the meat is done cooking, you can take it out and cut it up into pieces, but it will be so tender it will just fall apart anyway. You could serve over whatever - we did pasta! I liked the rotini because it absorbed all the delicious sauce well. :)

Slow-Cooker Chicken Cacciatore

It smelled so good when I came home! I love my crock pot.

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 onion, sliced
1 can diced tomatoes, drained
6 oz sliced mushrooms
1 small green bell pepper, chopped
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp celery powder
1/2 c dry white wine
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp crushed red pepper

Place chicken in crock pot. In a large bowl, mix together all the other ingredients. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 8 hours. We had it with pasta. Yum!

Slow-Cooker Beef Stroganoff

I cooked 2 new crock pot recipes 2 nights in a row! This one is also from sparkrecipes.com and it's light. This really is one of my favorite recipes I've made in my crock pot... and I only post the recipes that are delicious on my blog. Will and I both agreed that it was one of the best things ever. You MUST try this recipe. So, so, so easy.

1 lb top sirloin
1 can red-fat cream of mushroom soup
1 can mushrooms
1/2 pack dry onion soup mix
2 beef bouillon cubes
1/2 soup can of water
1/2 c light sour cream
egg noodles

Put sirloin in crock pot. Mix together cream of mushroom soup, water, onion soup mix, and mushrooms. Add beef bouillons and pour over meat. Cook on low 8 hours. When it's done, turn off the crock pot and let it cool for 5 min before adding sour cream to thicken. Serve over egg noodles (or whatever you like).

Ok one more time: THIS IS SO GOOD!

Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings

I found this healthy recipe on sparkrecipes.com. So easy and so delicious. Just what I love!

1 lb chicken breasts
1 can red-fat cream of mushroom soup
1 can red-fat cream of chicken soup
1/2 c water
1/2 tsp each, oregano, basil, pepper
1 1/2 c frozen mixed veggies
1 small onion, diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 can red-fat biscuits

Cut chicken breasts in half (I just bought chicken tenders) and place in crock pot. Add onion and garlic. With a whisk, stir together soups, water, and spices. Add frozen veggies to this mixture and stir. Pour over chicken. Cook on low 8 hours. After 8 hours, cut biscuits into strips or quarters, and set on top of soup mixture - or mix everything together. Continue cooking for 2 hours on low. If you want more of a doughy dumpling, stir into mixture. Otherwise, just set them on top.
