    My recipe is really simple, healthy and versatile... you can also use venison instead of chicken if you have it or pork if you wanted to use that as well

    It just consists of the "meat", halved/quartered radishes, green onions, canned diced tomatoes w/green chilies, stock (chicken/beef/veggie, depending upon the kind of meat used) and some garlic, chili powder, cumin and black pepper, all to taste. You can pre cook/sauté the meat and add to it or if you are not concerned with really low carb, then you can coat the meat in flour and brown all sides then add to the crock pot so that it will thicken up a little...cook on high or low depending on when you need it finished... basically you want it to cook long enough that it turns the radishes more of like an opaque color, the same color a new potato would turn and just make sure your meat is cooked depending on if you pre cooked it or just seared it all sides. Versatility would come in if you wanted to add some additional vegetables as well... It's just the way I fix it gives my Mexican food craving a total fix!

    I have fixed this same recipe with venison, chicken and pork and all of them are wonderful
    And yes, I use radishes instead of new potatoes. Once a radish is boiled, it takes on the flavor of a new potato or whatever you're boiling it in and is much lower in carbs (which I need for my glucose levels). No one that I've ever served it to could tell the difference. Here is a photo for reference:

    They are in the same section as Zip-Lock storage bags and sandwich baggies, etc.

    Cooking Light has an entire book (more?) on using a crock pot. I swear by mine (book and crockpot).

    Waste of $$$

    I agree. Just spray with Pam or other such cooking spray.

    so happy I found this thread.... thanks to everyone for sharing their recipes much appreciated.

    a quick question for those already in the know.. I bought a small crockpot (2.5QT) because i'm only cooking for one and although the plan is to freeze a few leftovers, a lot of the recipes I have found online are made for bigger family size crock pots.. i'm assuming I can just halve the ingredients for most dishes, but if anyone has any experience or tips about using a smaller size CP would appreciate it :smile:

    I made this stew recently and it was delicious. I love experimenting with spices.
    The recipe calls for 'berbere spice mix' and provides a recipe to make your own. In that recipe it calls for 'fenugreek seed (or powder)', which I could not find. I researched it and substituted curry power for it.

    Teriyaki chicken

    It's simple and fool proof..

    Either chicken breast or thighs. (Boneless skinless)
    Low sodium soy sauce
    Brown sugar
    Black pepper
    Garlic either powder or fresh
    Onion powder
    Crushed pineapple

    Amounts are completely to your individual taste.. Adjust cook time to the chicken you use. Dark meat I typically cook higher and longer..
    Serve with whatever..

    Made this one yesterday, adapted from the original (non-slow cooker) recipe from no recipes.com (norecipes.com/blog/2010/02/08/japanese-curry-rice-recipe-video/). This is one of the all-time Japanese and Japanese-American comfort foods.

    Japanese style chicken curry (makes 6-8 servings)

    2 Sweet Onions
    4 Carrots
    4 Small Yellow Potatoes
    1 Apple
    2 lb Chicken Breast
    4 Cups Water
    1 Tsp Garam Masala
    1 Tbsp Coarse Sea Salt
    1 Cup Frozen Peas
    + Curry Roux (see below)

    Thinly slice onions, cut carrots and potatoes into chunks, and put the veggies in the slow cooker. Core and peel apple and finely grate into the cooker. Place chicken breasts on top, and season with salt and garam masala (or you can substitute curry powder). Pour in the water, and cook on low for 6 hours

    Just before the 6 hours is up, make the Roux

    Curry Roux:

    1/4 cup butter
    1/4 cup flour
    2 Tbsp Garam Masala (or Curry Powder)
    3 Tbsp Tonkatsu Sauce (or Worchestire Sauce)
    2 Tbsp Ketchup

    Over medium low heat melt butter and stir in flour to make Roux. When smooth, add Garam Masala and let toast for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in the sauce and ketchup.

    Take chicken out and shred using two forks and return. Take a cup of the liquid from the slow cooker and mix into the roux and then pour back into the slow cooker. Add the peas and let it cook for another hour.

    Serve over rice or noodles.

    This sounds really yummy!

    Any Low sodium, or without the canned/packet soup? I need to cut sodium way down for me and my family.

    Excellent tip! I love roasted radishes but have never considered using them as a replacement for potatoes in a stew or pot roast. So great to learn a new trick!

    Amy's makes some organic, low sodium soups. They are generally in the "health" or "organic" section. Also an excellent low sodium canned chili
