A few weeks ago the girls and I did another crockpot day.  This time we only made one recipe I have made before, which was the beer chicken (you can find the original recipe HERE).  Then we also made smothered pork chops and beef stroganoff.  They all came out delicious! We served them with copious amounts of egg noodles and had plenty of leftovers.  All these recipes were winners so I advise you to try them!

Smothered Pork Chops


  • 8 boneless center cut pork chops
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tbs paprika (I used the smoked paprika, great flavor)
  • 1 tbs garlic powder
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 8oz pkg sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup low sodium beef broth

Mix all ingredients except pork, mushrooms, and onions in a bowl.  Place onions on bottom of slow cooker, place pork on top.  Cover with mushrooms, then pour soup mixture over.  Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Beef Stroganoff


  • 2 lbs beef stew meat
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 8oz pkg sliced mushrooms
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp ground thyme
  • 1 to 2 bay leaves
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tbs worcestershire
  • 1 tbs red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs mustard (I prefer Dijon)
  • 8 oz sour cream

Place beef chunks on bottom of slow cooker. Top with mushrooms and onions.  Mix all other ingredients EXCEPT sour cream. Pour over beef.  Cook on low for 8 hours.
