A Crock-Pot cooker for our RV: Recipes wanted!

It’s hard to believe how much a $16 purchase at Walmart can brighten your day. Such it was the other day when we spotted a pile of Crock-Pots on sale.

It was exactly what we needed. Small, round and just the right size to fit in the sink of our Roadtrek eTrek RV.

The sink? Exactly. That way, as we travel across the country during the day, the slow cooking crock pot can prepare our evening meals. By the time we reach our destination, a hot, sumptuous dinner is ready. Let’s face it, one of the bothers of traveling in an RV can be meal preparation. After a long day on the road, it’s just too easy to stop for fast food or hit a restaurant.  With our new Crock-Pot, we can have a nutritious, home-cooked meal without the hassle.

Our $16 four-quart Crock-Pot

We’ve searched far and wide for the round four-quart sized model for months. We even brought home a bunch of other models that we found. None fit that sink.

We had all but given up the hunt until, walking down an aisle at our local Walmart this past weekend, there it was. Boxes of them. exactly what we were looking for. Exactly what we had given up finding. The four quart size is perfect for two people. We can easily get two meals out of each dinner. One to eat that night, one for the refrigerator or freezer.

The model we have – for those of you who want one – is officially known as the Crock-Pot SCR4oo-B 4 Quart manual slow cooker. We also found it on Amazon for $15.92 in black. The one we got at WalMart was red. It has a removable stoneware insert for cooking and it also doubles as a serving dish.

Ah… but what do we eat, other than beef stew?

That’s the reason for this post… we want your recipes.

Many of you have been using Crock-Pots for years as you’ve traveled. We’ve read your posts here and on our Facebook Group. So, using comments below, please tell us what you cook in your Crock-Pots and share the recipe.

Jennifer and I look forward to trying out your suggestions!

    I love our crock pot! Here is one that we enjoy:

    FRENCH DIP
    1 roast
    1 can French Onion Soup
    1 can beer
    1 package hoagies
    ———
    Trim all fat. This is very important for the flavor. For some reason, leaving the fat on decreases the flavor. I know this through error.
    Add roast to crock pot and pour soup and beer over it.

    When done cooking, (standard crock pot cook times apply), butter the inside of each hoagie, toast the hoagies in the broiler or over a campfire, slice roast and place slices inside hoagie. Serve with a side of the juices.

    I always buy a HUGE roast to freeze for a later meal or make Beef n’ Noodles.

    Crock Pot Ranch Pork chops:

    package of boneless pork chops
    1 can of Cream of Chicken soup
    1 packet dry Ranch dressing mix

    In Crock Pot layer pork chops, add the cream of chicken soup, then sprinkle dry Ranch dressing all over.
    Cover and cook on high for 4 hours OR Low for 6 hours.

    The pork chops come out very tender and the flavor is amazing! You also get a good gravy for mashed potatoes

    I love pulled pork, particularly if it is served on fresh bakery rolls. It’s also good on corn chips like nachos, with cornbread. Coleslaw is good with this for a more balanced meal. Here’s how it’s done. Be flexible with it, you can vary the results that way.
    1 hunk of lean pork, choose your size, 3-4 pounds is good. Trim off any big hunks of fat
    1 sliced onion
    2-4 cloves garlic, sliced or chopped
    1 cup beer, wine, water or chicken broth
    1-2 cups of your favorite Q sauce (adjust to size of roast)
    Rub to your taste, optional: 1 T brown sugar, 1 T kosher salt,1 T chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    Layer the onions and garlic on the bottom of the crock
    Pour beer over onions
    Pat roast dry, mix the rub ingredients and rub it over pork (I often skip this step, still get great pulled pork)
    Pour over the roast a cup of your favorite Q sauce
    Cook on HI for 6-8 hours of LO for 8-10 hours until the roast is fork tender. Size of roast will affect the time.
    Reach into pot with two forks and shred the roast, discarding any fat that is left. Add more Q sauce if needed for the proper consistency. Enjoy!

    Good topic. We’ve been thinking of using a crockpot for cooking in our RT. You have found the perfect one. I have picked up a few crock pot cookbooks (ebooks) looking for healthy recipes . . . no cans of soup. I’m off to Walmart. And I will post a few recipes before the day ends.

    We found an Aroma brand rice cooker/food steamer/slow cooker that fits the sink in our 210P. Holds about 3 qts. Great for slow cooking just about anything, or steaming vegies, rice, etc.

  14. I saw the ‘stew in the sink’ idea online a couple of years ago, and found a small crockpot with open handles so that I could hook a short bunge cord to one side handle, through the lid handle and to the other side to hold the lid secure when traveling. I would often fix something to cook while we were traveling to a campground. I usually started it at home. Then I found out that when we are on the road, the outlets in our travel trailer don’t work! It apparently stayed fairly warm on the road for a couple of hours and by the time we got somewhere, plugged in, and got set up, it was hot again. Duh. That said, our favorite is turkey thigh stew–I even included it in my book, “The Blue Coyote.
    “Turkey-Thigh Meat Stew—One of our favorite camping meals, thanks to friend Linda. In a slow-cooker crock, whisk together 1 can of tomato soup, 1 cup of red wine or turkey broth, and 1/4 cup flour. Add 3 pounds cubed turkey thigh meat, 3 carrots, cut diagonally in 1-inch slices; 2 onions, quartered; 4 potatoes, coarsely chopped; ½ cup coarsely chopped celery; 8 whole mushrooms; 2 beef bouillon cubes; 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning; 1 bay leaf; and salt and black pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Cover and cook in slow cooker on low for 8-10 hours.

    OMG! These recipes all sound wonderful. Iora, I do the same thing with pork…I am a fool for bbq!
    Mike and Jennifer, here are my 2 go-to crock pot favorites:
    CROCKPOT ROUND STEAK & TOMATOES
    3 slices eye of round steak w/onion slices between meat slices
    (for camping that is all that fits our small crockpot)
    1 can Green Beans
    1 can Diced Tomatoes (or whole/peeled)
    1 can Tomato soup covering all
    Cover and cook ~ 8 hours
    If room, can add potatoes…or just serve w/potatoes, rice, noodles, etc.

    CROCKPOT STEAK OR MEATBALLS
    Round Steak cut into serving size pieces or your meatballs.

    1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
    1 Can Water (+/- as fits crockpot)
    2 HEAPING TBSP French Onion Chip dip

    Put all into crock pot on high for 1 hour, then turn to low for 5-7 hours depending on tenderness desired.

    Serve with potatoes or noodles, green beans, and applesauce.
    Happy crock pot Treking!

  17. Hi! good idea on putting the crock pot in the sink and cooking while traveling!
    I have made a lot in mine, a simple recipe is Chicken in Ceasar Dressing
    2 chicken breasts
    garlic chopped, onion chopped (however much you like)
    Frozen or fresh, whole green beans
    diced carrots
    left over corn or about a handfull of frozen
    green peppers, diced (opt.)
    pour about a cup of lite, Creamy Ceasar Dressing on top
    You can use italian if you like, the Ceasar was better I thought.
    Add about 1/2 cup water
    Crank up the crock pot if you are in a hurry or keep it on low for a while, either way is fine.
    Stir it around once you get to check on it.
    It is great with a side of Alfredo noodles, or just a great meal without! Next time I do it I am gonna add some new potatoes chopped into quarters for a diff change.
    This made two meals for us and my husband is a big eater.
    God Bless!

    Chili is a good one – just use your regular recipe but be sure to brown the meat before putting in slow-cooker. I use ground turkey. Chili benefits from long slow cooking. Have all the usual toppings – cheese, cilantro, avocado, sour cream, tortilla chips.

    Reply
      • Judi Darin

        That would darken the meat but I like the caramelization you get when you brown the meat. Also, if you use a meat with more fat, like beef, browning lets you separate out the fat for a healthier meal.

        Reply
        • Duane Metz

          Try cooking the ground meat by boiling. This will remove the fat and you can rinse it with hot water and no grease. I freeze portions in baggies then just toss in Crook Pot as needed.

  20. In case you get tired of the savory stuff, and in case you happen by some lovely peaches or other fresh fruits and berries in your travels:
    fruit cobbler –
    take any and all fruits you like and place in crock pot, sprinkle with sweetener (sugar, honey, agave, whatever)
    you can either mix up a quick crumble topping (butter, flour, oats and sugar), or a batch of bisquick drop biscuits, or tear up a can of biscuits into pieces and place them on top.
    cover loosely with foil to allow steam out but keep heat in.

    or, for cold winter nights
    Rice Pudding
    1/2 gal milk
    1 cup rice
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 tsp salt
    2 Tbsp. butter
    cover loosely and cook till it coats a spoon and rice is tender – sprinkle with cinnamon and serve (we like it warm)…

    Crock Pot Lasagna
    (very good)
    1 pound Ground Beef
    Lasagna noodles
    1 jar spaghetti sauce- very large jar
    1 1/2 cups cottage cheese
    1 1/2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
    2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
    Directions
    Brown ground beef and drain. Spoon 1 C. spaghetti sauce in bottom of 4 quart crock pot. Mix remaining sauce with beef. Place 2 uncooked lasagna noodles on sauce in crock pot. Spread 1/3 meat mixture on top of noodles. Spread 3/4 C. cottage cheese over meat. Sprinkle 1/2 C. mozzarella cheese over cottage cheese. Add another layer of uncooked noodles, 1/3 meat mixture, the remaining cottage cheese and 1/2 C. mozzarella cheese. Place another layer of uncooked noodles, meat mixture, and mozzarella cheese. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top. Cook on low for 4 hours.
    If cooked much longer, it gets a bit well done. I brown my meat in the microwave in the MicroHearth. I love this item that became a big item at a Solo gathering last year, check around for prices. http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Microhearth-Red-1.5-quart-Covered-Nonstick-4-piece-Everyday-Pan-Set/6141145/product.html?cid=202290&kid=9553000357392&track=pspla&ef_id=StvLP0o-KSIAABCZ890AAAOA:20131112215137:s

      I have a 12 volt 1.5 quart (small) crockpot that will work off the batteries. While driving, there is no drain from it. My new Roadtrek has an inverter that will power a regular house crockpot off the batteries should I decide the house one works better. The house one is a 4 quart so definitely I can cook more food in the house one, but there are only two of us, so the smaller one should be fine and take up less space. They have the 12 volt crockpots on Amazon for $28.

    How about a rump roast or similar cut, a can of beef consume’ or broth. then add a can of either french onion soup or cream of mushroom depending on wanting a clear broth or a creamy gravy. Cook on low all day. A little before serving we take the meat out a shread it and return it back to the pot. Then we either server it over baked potatoes, rice, rolls. We either have a salad or another green veggie, green beans. I am a applesause person and love to have that with this meal.

    I saute filet of sole all the time when I am home. But I only cook it on the road when I’m cooking outside. But now I know how to cook sole in my crock pot!

    Filet of Sole with Pesto
    -1 to 2 pounds of white fish. I used Sole.
    –bottled pesto
    –shredded Parmesan cheese
    –foil

    Spread out a layer of foil on the counter top. Put a piece of fish in it. Cover it with a spoonful of pesto. Sprinkle on some shredded parmesan cheese. Fold over the foil to create a little packet. Put the packets in the crock pot. Continue to layer in foil packets until you run out of fish or your pot is 2/3 rds full.

    I tried this last night and it is very good! I think you could put some veggies in a packet and add that too!!
    Thanks Mike for this topic, I have really enjoyed it and getting started with my crockpot!!

    Get a 12-volt crockpot or an inverter big enough to run your regular crockpot off the batteries while you are en route. The 12 volt ones run are small, 1.5 quart, but that is big enough for one or two people. Check Camping World or Amazon to see 12 volt crockpots (aka slow cookers).

    We have been using the book “Not Your Mother’s Slow Cooker Recipes for Two,” by Beth Hensperger. We have done more than half the recipes, and have enjoyed them all. Well, except for the Mac’n’cheese … i think it is easier and faster to just do it on the stove top, and I really like the texture better! The recipes say 2 .. but if you are like us, you may get 2 dinners and 2 lunches — depending on how big a meal you eat!

    I take a roast and put on bottom with water garlic,onions,spices or what you like.Then i take potatoes and peel or not peeled cut up and put in tinfoil and place on top of roast then take vegetables that you like and put in tinfoil and place on potatoes.Always put the food that takes the longest on bottom ,if i want turnip i would put that before the potatoes because it takes longer to cook

    The best kept secret is that you can bake in them–similar heat to a solar oven. We frequently make bread or cakes while traveling.

    For an easy mini-cake (for one or two) use 1/2 box of the Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix. In place of the egg we use a tablespoon of psyllium husk powder–works as an egg replacement and adds about 7 grams of fiber. Bake in crock pot in a separate small round pan or bowl (placed inside the pot)–about 1 hour. Also put a towel over the top of crock pot–adds insulation and increases top temperature.

    Check out the Yahoo group RT site about “cooking for two on 30 watts” for some interesting power savings ideas.

    We have recipes for a good sized family. We cook almost exclusively in our Crockpot for dinners. One quick tip: use Reynolds oven bags to cook in. They make cleanup of even the most messy foods a snap, and are a darn site cheaper than “crockpot liners”.
    We have chicken, pork, and beef recipes (I say “we”, but I mean my wife Heather does).

    Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired)
    Hot cooked rice (brown rice, or riced cauliflower)

    1. Place beef in a crock pot.

    2. In a small bowl, combine consomme, soy sauce, brown sugar/honey, oil, and garlic. Pour over beef. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

    3. In a cup, stir cornstarch and sauce form the crock pot until smooth. Add to crock pot. Stir well to combine. (If your sauce is not thickening, try bringing your sauce to a boil on the stovetop with the corn starch mixture. Boil until your desired consistency is reached).

    Pot Roast
    Ingredients:
    • 5 lbs boneless chuck roast (cut in 2 pieces)
    • 1 ranch salad dressing mix (envelope)
    • 1 italian salad dressing mix (envelope)
    • 1 gravy mix (envelope s brown)
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 2 large onions
    Directions
    Place the chuck roasts in a 5-qt. slow cooker along with bay leaf. In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing and gravy mixes, stir in water. Pour over meat. Quarter onions break apart and put over top of meat. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours or until tender. If desired, thicken cooking juices for gravy.

    To make you meal easier, buy some mash potatoes from the refrigerator section of your local grocery store. The trick behind this lovely potatoes is heat them than add to a bowl and add a little butter and a bit of milk and mix to make cream and smooth; or you can microwave potatoes (wash them poke a few holes in them and then wrap them up in a wet paper towel – if you microwave does not have a potato setting nuke 10 min and 5 min after each time you check them. I also recommend the buttered frozen carrots in your freezer section of your grocery store. Yes make your microwave you friend and whip up some amazing dinners that will stun the most picky of eaters.

      This is a jewel of a recipe. You don’t need anything in a cabinet to do this; ya buy it, ya use it, it’s over. I use an extra cup of water, then reserve and freeze the sauce. Just pressure cooked a whole chicken, dumping one of my little containers of sauce in…excellent all over again.
