Family Recipe Friday - Meal In A Crock Pot

Crock Pot Dinner

I haven't been making this dinner long, but it is one we have returned to several times over the past few months, and will probably use it for the rest of our lives!

Simple and easy, you put this one on to cook, walk away and forget it until time to serve it! A complete meal in a single pot!

I use an 8.5 quart crockpot, because it's the largest I have, but you can certainly adjust the size to suit your family's needs.

Crock pot [slow cooker]
meat of your choice [we have used steak, roast, chicken and pork chops so far!]
a bottle of steak sauce or BBQ sauce of your choosing
baking potatoes
short ears of corn [we use Green Giant frozen nibblers]

Place your meat of choice in the bottom of the crock pot and pour the entire bottle of sauce over it.
Place a layer of aluminum foil over this [I use heavy duty foil].
Wash potatoes. Lightly oil and wrap individually in aluminum foil. Place these on the single layer of foil in the pot.
Place another layer of foil over the potatoes.
Wrap each ear of corn in foil and place on the last layer of foil.
Depending upon the setting of your slow cooker, you may have to adjust your heat controls.
I set my heat on High for 5 hours or Low for 8.
Remove each item from the slow cooker.
Slice the meat for serving.
And serve!

My family loves this!!! And you spend maybe 5 minutes preparing it!

Give it a try!
