crockpot recipes

Pork and Sauerkraut

Place ½ of a jar/bag of sauerkraut in the bottom of a crock pot. Place a boneless pork roast (any type) on top and cover with remaining sauerkraut. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Serve over Core mashed potatoes.


Brown ground beef (Core acceptable) with a bunch of diced onions. Add to crock pot filled with diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Add beans (if you like) and chili seasoning. Cook on low all day. Serve with Core-n bread, ff sour cream, and ff cheese.

Pot Roast

Add a 14 oz can of diced tomatoes to crock pot. Stir in 1 bottle of beer or 1 c. red wine (if desired) and ½ package of onion soup mix (or any dry soup mix that sounds good). Add lots of chopped onions, and stir. Add a beef roast (we like eye of the round best). Spoon sauce over roast. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Serve with bulgur, mashed potatoes, brown rice, etc. (The beer/wine adds 2 points for the WHOLE thing, which would most likely be less than .5 pts per serving unless you’re really hungry!)

Sour Cream Salsa Chicken

Add a big ole’ jar of salsa to crock pot. Add 4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Add sliced onions and peppers if you like. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours. Remove chicken (if you can without it falling apart), stir in a few tablespoons of ff sour cream, and add chicken back. Serve over bulgur, brown rice, etc. Or use in a low point tortilla. Lots of options here…I think it would even make a good base for a chicken tortilla soup.

Slowcooker Chicken and Salsa

1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 jar hot salsa (or to taste)
1 can black or other beans

Place chicken, salsa and beans in crockpot. Add 1 jar of salsa and 1 can of beans. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 overs.

Serving suggestions: Place over bulgar, brown rice, or ww pasta. Use as a filling for tacos or burritos (count WPA for the shells). Add Water and other veggies and continue cooking to make soup.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
