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

Please share this!

It’s hard to believe how much a $15 purchase from Amazon can brighten your day. But such it was for us when we found the perfect-sized crockpot for our RV.

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 $15 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, browsing around the Amazon shopping site, there it was. 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 Rival Crock-Pot SCR4oo-B 4 Quart manual slow cooker.  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!

Besides Amazon, the crock pot is also sometimes available in Walmart stores.

    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.

  • Elaine

    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!

    • Stella

      Whats Q sauce?

      • John

        I think it’s BBQ sauce.

  • Diane Gipson

    1 small pkg corn tortillas
    Green taco sauce to taste

  • Barbara

    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.

    • Susan Wicks

      We used our little camper this past spring for a 6-week trip and loved every bit. Never thought about a crock pot, but what a fantastic idea! Will certainly bring mine next year……. Already have an inverter for my husband’s sleep apnea apparatus. Thanks so much.

  • Susan Brooks

    Curry

    Start with any meat…beef, pork, chicken
    Add any sturdy veges…..garlic, ginger, onion, carrots, bells,etc
    A bit of broth and some coconut milk.
    Curry, tumeric, cumin, salt, pepper. Yum!

  • Vicky Bennett

    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.

  • Nancy Barrett

    Hi – love your blog – my husband and I plan to become nomads in 2015 so find you info very helpful.

    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.

    • Penny

      Ok I made this! Yum! I wasn’t on the road though so I made it on the stove with canned turkey “got to use up that survival food you know” and left out the flour till the end. delicious!
      Thank you!

      Also I’ve been reading blogs for about a year now and I think it was camp skunk I’m not sure,
      that said to get a DC crockpot, which I did but it’s kind of small I haven’t used it yet but I’m looking forward to trying it out!

  • Dave

    Wow Mike! I have never seen responses like this. Recipes rule!
    You are going to have to double up on your “fat farm” time this winter Hi Hi. I can’t wait to start testing out a few of these myself. The crock pot gets used about 2 days a week in our house. Do they make a Road Trek with peddles? Keep on Trekking, Bigfoot Dave

  • Carolyn & Jim

    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!

    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!

  • Judi Darin

    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.

    • http://www.timelythreads.com sarah murphy

      if you do not want to brown the meat first, you can always knead in a bit of gravy browning. it darkens the meat and the sauce…

      • 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.

        • 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.

    EASY CROCK POT BEEF TIPS

    2 pounds beef tips
    1 can beef broth
    1 can cream of celery soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    1 soup can of water

    Cook all day on low in crock pot. 30 minutes before serving, add 1 ½ cups of rice.

  • http://www.timelythreads.com sarah murphy

    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

    EASY CROCKPOT POTATO SOUP RECIPE

    Ingredients:
    1 (30 oz.) bag frozen hash-brown potatoes
    2 (14 oz.) cans chicken broth
    1 (10.75 oz.) can cream of chicken soup
    1/2c chopped onion

    1 (8oz) package cream cheese (softened)
    Garnish: minced green onion

    Directions:
    1. In a slow cooker, combine potatoes, broth, soup, onion, and pepper.
    2. Cover, and cook on low for 5 hours.
    3. Stir in cream cheese (or I use lighter Neufchâtel) cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until combined. If you prefer less chuck soup – before serving use a potato masher
    4. Garnish with green onion.
    I also add chopped cooked bacon. This soup was so creamy I think it is replacing my ole family recipe from my mom.

  • marcy aller

    All of these recipes sound delish! Thank you, everyone, I’m going to try to print all of them. However, I have a question: How do you use the crockpot to cook food while travelling? Do you use your generator for power?

    • Elaine

      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.

      • Janet Poell

        I saw the 12 volt pots, and they plug into the lighter socket. Is that what you do? Or did you find one that is only 12 volt but plugs into the electric outlet and works off the batteries in the Roadtrek? Ours is a Popular 210 with two batteries. Thanks !!

      Thanks for the information on 12 volt crockpot. I’ll check it out.

  • Carolyn Willis

    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!!

      Dick,

      I use my generator to keep my crock pot powered up while going down the road yes. I Do a lot of long distance driving to Dog shows in my RV and find prepping a meal in the crock pot before I pull out in the AM means a good hot dinner in the PM :)

  • Dick Ingersoll

    All great recipes but I’m clearly missing something pretty basic. How do I power my crockpot? Do you leave the generator running while heading down the road?

  • Elaine

    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).

  • Diane

    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).

    2 tablespoons cooled sauce from the crock pot after being cooked

    Fresh broccoli florets (as many as desired)

    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.

    Garlic Chicken
    4-6 chicken breasts
    1 cup packed brown sugar
    2/3 cup vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar)
    1/4 cup lemon-lime soda (diet or regular)
    2-3 Tablespoons minced garlic
    2 Tablespoons soy sauce
    1 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
    2 Tablespoons corn starch
    2 Tablespoons water
    Red pepper flakes (optional)
    Directions
    Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place chicken (frozen, thawed or fresh) inside slow cooker. Mix together brown sugar, vinegar, soda, garlic, soy sauce, and pepper together. Pour over chicken. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or high for 4 hours.

    Take chicken pieces out of slow cooker (mine basically fell apart) and pour remaining sauce into saucepan. Place saucepan over high heat. Mix together corn starch and water, pour into saucepan, and mix well. Let sauce come to a boil and boil for 2-3 minutes, or until it starts to thicken and turns into a glaze. Remove from heat and let sit for a minute or two (it will continue to thicken as it cools down).

    Great idea! What wattage are these? I’m assuming you’re using a 12/115 volt inverter as you travel.

  • Trish Wooly

    Wow. Looks like you could put together a crock pot cook book, now. My recipe from our full timing years works well with skinless chicken pieces, boneless pork chops, or a small roast of almost any kind. Experiment freely.

    Lightly season the meat you desire with salt and pepper to taste and layer it in the bottom of the pot.
    Mix together some shredded parm with a couple of bags (minus the bags) of success rice or cooked white or brown rice. (I think an instant rice would work great as well). Long cooking rice requires to use too much of the juice of the tomatoes.
    A couple of the large cans of Italian seasoned (onion, basil and oregano) diced tomatoes tossed in to the pot. Maybe some nice sweet onions, my hubby loves Vidiala onions.
    Turn it on and enjoy a nice drive. I do check to make sure it never goes to dry. You can add stock, tomatoes juice or even some water without losing out on flavor.
    About an hour from your serving time you can throw in some sliced zucchini, or mushrooms, or both! Sometimes I melt mozzarella cheese on top.
    This is not a dish that requires exact measurements. Just keep an eye on the liquid the first couple of times you
    make it.
    We always make enough to enjoy at least 2 meals and it freezes great.
    Yummy

    Me, myself couldn’t handle smelling the food cooking all day. We cook all kinds of meals in our 6 qt Dutch Oven inside a Galvanized Bucket….usually start to finish in 45 minutes. We’ve done it so much, it’s really easy and quick

    I’m not sure about a round crock pot – but in an oval one where they say to put the meat on top this works real good:
    Bag of tiny carrots
    A couple or more of vaidlia onions
    Pkt of raw mushrooms washed
    Put roast on top – then the juice flows down through the onions, mushrooms and carrots.
    As much garlic, pepper & salt and as you like.
    Turn on crock pot.
    Yummy
    Then after you’re through eating it the broth makes great French Onion soup.

    DO NOT ADD POTATOES OR TOMATOES.

    I only have an oval crock pot and it said to put the meat on top so I do

    You don’t need to run the generator. Buy the smallest size round crock pot, put it in the sink, and plug it in to an inverter. You may need an extension cord.
    In the morning before hitting the road, add:
    Stew meat (seasoned), onions, garlic, potatoes, carrots, Lipton onion soup mixed with 2 cups of water, pepper, a splash of wine or sherry……
    The hard part is smelling it cook all day!

    Spanish chicken. Chicken, small can tomato paste, small jar green olives, small can of beer, paprika and garlic to taste. Cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 8 hours) until chicken is done and serve over rice.

    Easy Beef Stroganoff. Beef, french onion soup, sour cream. Brown beef in frying pan and add to crockpot with soup. Cook until done. Add sour cream. I like the thin sauce but my kids always made me thicken it.

    I call this Swiss Steak. I throw several steaks in the crock pot (I like to brown them with peppers and onions first, Worcester sauce, salt and pepper to taste) then cover them with can of stewed tomatoes and cook until tender. 3 to 4 hours. Serve over boil in bag rice. Tastes wonderful.

    By the way… when we drive we use the sink to hold our coffee maker. Never thought about using it to hold a cooking crock pot.
