As busy moms we sometimes struggle to get meals on the table. Practice schedules are crazy, game times can be late or crazy early, and everyone is just plain tired. HockeyMom411 is here to help by supplying you with our favorite crock pot recipes.
I love cooking a whole chicken in the crock-pot seasoned with McCorrmick's Grill Mates Garlic, Herb Wine Marinade. Sprinkle the marinade over the top and let it go for 10-12 hours. The juices the chicken release make the best gravy and the meals you can make with the cooked chicken are endless!
Another family favorite is pulled pork and it couldn't be easier to serve up this southern favorite from your crock pot. Simply take the pork roast of your choice, sear it, and place it in your crock pot on low for 10-12 hours a with a full bottle of George's Original BBQ Sauce. We like to serve it up with George's Special Sauce. Delicious!!
Crock Pot Recipes
Planning ahead can be the key to providing a healthy, nutritious meal to your family. Let's be honest, at the end of the day we are exhausted and it will always be easier to hit a drive-thru. But the Crock Pot can be your best friend, and here you will find fantastic recipes that can be waiting for you when you get home from the rink. The key to a GREAT crock pot recipe is a little extra work at the start. Remember when preparing roasts that searing the meat before it goes into the Crock Pot will seal in juices and help to prevent the meat from drying out, in addition to creating an added depth of flavor in your dish. Also, investing in a slow cooker that has the ability to set the duration of cooking time and automatically switches to warm when complete will prevent the dish from being overcooked and mushy. Not all Crock Pots are the same and they have advanced quiet a bit over the years.
