What is your Favorite Slow Cooker Recipe?

If you don't mind sharing, I would love to know what your favorite recipe is. General ideas are also welcome!

I have a recipe that I just adapted to using a slow cooker and has become my fav. Which is my beef stroganoff. But my use of slow cookers has been limited and have not used it much else except for that and roasts. So there is my rather narrow view of fav slow cooker recipes.

BTW... Welcome to DC!

my all time favorite is french onion soup, most any recipe will work, since they usually cook for a long while.

after that maybe bean soup, dried beans, onions celery, sometimes pepper strips, a ham hock or two , garlic in whatever form you like. some times i put in just a little barley to thicken it up. serves a lot of people

I don't have a favorite but I find I cook chicken thighs a lot in the slow cooker, either with cream of chicken soup or Tomato soup. I remove the skins first before putting thighs in cooker.

This is one of my all-time favorites. Lamb and Lentil Soup Recipe - Lentil Soup Recipe with Lamb Shanks for Crockpot or Slow Cooker

I use 4 lamb shanks, a bag of lentils and one large bunch of Swiss chard. Verrrrrrry hearty stew!

Babe, your bean soup sounds fantastic! I love all you put in it! I think I'll try that with a bag of assorted dry beans and the bone from my smoked shoulder. Do you put raw or cooked barley in?

Oooh - thanks for that link Qsis! I'm thinking it will be easily adaptable for me, using turkey drumsticks or thighs in place of lamb shanks, & chicken broth for the beef broth. Plus, I LOVE Swiss Chard & lentils. Definitely a must try.

i use raw, just be careful not to use to much, it really puffs up. gives it a nutty flaver. i usually use small northern beans.
