    I have a pork shoulder roast in the crockpot right now. I add the roast with a cup of water, a half cup of wine, and a half cup of tomato sauce and cooked on low for 8 hours, then I poured off the broth, added bbq sauce for pulled pork sandwiches.
    Roast is really easy too, I like it with water and a packet of dry onion soup, any vegetables you want.

    I made the best turkey breast in the crock pot today. Very simple recipe. You can find it here: Crockpot365.blogspot.com is a great website for recipes.

    I have a pork shoulder in the crock pot right. I got a big one and last week I put half of it in the crockpot with a cup of water, 1/2 cup red, 1/2 vinegar, tomato sauce and cooked on low for 8 hours, took the pork out, shredded it and added bbq sauce for pulled pork sandwiches. Now it is in the crock pot with water, wine, salt and pepper, potatoes, carrots and onions for some pork roast.
    I like to make an easy beef roast with veggies, water and a packet of dry onion soup mix, the leftovers make a great stew, too.

    If you do Facebook at all, look up Skinny Crock Pot. They have tons of GREAT recipes! I just made these two this week:


    Irish Lamb Stew

    Ingredients

    2 pounds boneless leg of lamb, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
    1 3/4 pounds white potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 large leeks, white part only, halved, washed (see Tip) and thinly sliced
    3 large carrots, peeled and cut into 1-inch pieces
    3 stalks celery, thinly sliced
    1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
    2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/4 cup packed fresh parsley leaves, chopped

    Preparation

    Combine lamb, potatoes, leeks, carrots, celery, broth, thyme, salt and pepper in a 6-quart slow cooker; stir to combine. Put the lid on and cook on low until the lamb is fork-tender, about 8 hours. Stir in parsley before serving.
    (It's Delicious!! And the meat turns out SO tender!)


    Balsamic Chicken

    Ingredients:
    4-6 boneless, skinless, chicken breasts
    2 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    1 onion thinly sliced (Not chopped)
    4 garlic cloves
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    2 tblsp olive oil
    1 tsp each: dried oregano,basil, and rosemary
    1/2 tsp thyme
    ground black pepper and salt to taste

    Preparation:

    Pour the olive oil on bottom of crock pot
    place in chicken breasts, salt and pepper each breast
    put sliced onion on top of chicken
    then put in all the dried herbs and garlic cloves
    pour in vinegar and top with tomatoes

    Cook on high 4 hours, serve over angel hair pasta.

    (this can also be slow-cooked over 8 hours. I added a bit more balsamic than called for, plus some fresh spinach under the onions and tomatoes, and it was wonderful!)

    Enjoy!

    Can the Balsamic Chicken one - be made with less olive oil? I guess a spray wouldn't do the trick - huh?

    Not an expert, but I suspect the olive oil helps enrich the "sauce" that develops. It is not a large amount, especially if you consider that it covers 6 servings. A small amount of oil can really improve flavor and texture.
