I make my Italian beef in the crockpot. I just toss it in with a can of beer and a packet of Good Seasons Italian dressing mix. It's wonderful, and so easy.
I also make "barbeque" in the crockpot. I use boneless pork loin, a beer, and southwest seasoning. When it's falling apart, I shred it, add lots of Maul's BBQ sauce, and let it simmer some more. Kids love it.
When HB and I first got married, we had no stove for 6 months...just a grill, microwave, electric skillet and crockpot. I learned how to get the most out of my appliances!
We get by with a little help from our friends
