Crockpot recipes I can't live without!!

French Dips are a household favorite around here and SOOOOO easy!

Chuck Roast (I usually do two, because we have a lot of mouths to feed!)
Onion soup mix
your favorite seasonings
2 pkg aus jus
your favorite rolls or buns (we use sourdough hoagie rolls)

Follow the directions on the soup mix packet and put in the crockpot on high.  Add roast(s) seasoned to your liking.  I use seasoned salt, garlic salt and garlic pepper.  Cook on high 1 hour, and then turn to low and cook 6-8 hours.  Take roasts out of crockpot and shred with two forks (it will just fall apart at this point), removing fat.  I then put the meat back in the soup mix and let it simmer while preparing the aus jus and grilling some onions for the french dips.  You can warm your rolls up in the oven, add cheese if you want, and then pile with tender roast beef and dip in the aus jus!  You won't be dissapointed!

Pulled Pork

1 14 oz can beef broth
3lbs boneless pork ribs
1 bottle bbq sauce

Pour broth into slow cooker
add ribs (seasoned)
cook on high 4 hours
shred the pork and put back into crockpot (drain the broth first) on low with the bbq sauce.  Simmer until hot.
Serve on rolls or buns.

Roasted whole chicken
Whole chickens (I do two at a time so I can use the leftover chicken for something else)
wash inside and out and rub with olive oil
Season to your liking
I add a half of an onion to the cavity
make three small tin foil balls and place them on the bottom of your crockpot so the chickens will not stick to the bottom
cook on high 1 hr and low for 8-10 more
