If he dosen't like the way meat is in the crock pot (growing up my Dad was the same way....thankfully my boyfriend likes it), how about some vegitarian recipies. This is a veggie recipe...but still petty hearty. This recipe is from better recipes.com, but I altered it to take out the tofu and soy milk. My boyfriend is not a fan of soy products ;-) Very Veggie Dumpling Stew Ingredients: • 2 tablespoons olive oil • 2 onions, chopped • 4 cloves garlic • 2 1/4 cups vegetable stock, divided • 1/4 cup soy sauce • 1/2 lb fresh green beans, trimmed • 2 cups baby carrots • 4 stalks celery, chopped • 2 teaspoons sage • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon pepper • 2 tablespoons flour • • Dumplings: • 1 cup flour • 2 teaspoons baking powder • 1/2 teaspoon salt • 1/4 teaspoon pepper • 1/4 cup margarine, softened • 1/4 cup milk Method: In a large skillet over medium heat, saute oil and onions for 3 minutes. Using a garlic press, crush garlic directly into skillet. Transfer onion mixture to a crock pot set on low. Stir in 2 cups vegetable stock, reserving remaining 1/4 cup for later use. Add soy sauce, green beans, carrots, celery, sage, salt and pepper. Cover and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. One hour before serving, mix remaining 1/4 cup vegetable stock with 2 tablespoons of flour. Stir into crock pot to thicken stew. Raise temperature to highest setting. To make dumplings, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Rub in margarine. Add milk to bind together. Drop heaping tablespoons of dough into crock pot to make about 8 dumplings. Cover and cook on high for 45 minutes. When dumplings are cooked all the way through, serve immediately.

I like to use my crockpot in the summer months. I usually get my recipes from cdkitchen.com/crockpot They have many different recipes. Some old some new.

I make thick soups such as split pea, lentils or potato soup in the crockpot.

Blimey .. now I think that meat done in the slow cooker is the most succulent and juiciest meat you can have .. a stew or casserole just doesn't taste good unless it's been slow cooked .. but I put practically everything in my slow cooker .. even cheap steaks taste better if they are slow cooked with some vegetables .. I can't begin to give you a list of all the things I cook in my slow cooker .. but here's a great web site .. http://www.slowcookerrecipes.org/

Forgot to say .. you just have to try making porridge/oatmeal in the slow cooker .. it comes out beautifully creamy and is a super start on a cold winters morning .. Lovely hot porridge all ready and waiting .. yummylicious ..
