Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak 

"This recipe goes together quickly and does not need a lot of time in the slow cooker. It's a delicious way to add flavor to ground beef and the children love it! The gravy is delightful served over mashed potatoes."


Original Recipe Yield 8 servings



2 pounds lean ground beef

1 envelope brown onion soup mix

1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup

1 packet dry au jus mix

3/4 cup water



In a large bowl, mix together the ground beef, onion soup mix, bread crumbs, and milk using your hands. Shape into 8 patties.

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Dredge the patties in flour just to coat, and quickly brown on both sides in the hot skillet. Place browned patties into the slow cooker stacking alternately like a pyramid. In a medium bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, au jus mix, and water. Pour over the meat. Cook on the Low setting for 4 or 5 hours, until ground beef is well done.

Slow Cooker Pork Cacciatore

A wonderful Italian neighbor showed me how to make this recipe after I commented on how good it made the neighborhood smell when she had her windows open when she made it. This American-Italian term refers to food prepared 'hunter-style,' with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, various herbs, and sometimes wine. I found adding cheese gave it something special, it also made it mine.


Original Recipe Yield 4 servings



2 tablespoons olive oil

1 onion, sliced

4 boneless pork chops

1 (400g) jar pasta sauce

1 (400g) can diced tomatoes

1 green pepper, seeded and sliced into strips

1 punnet fresh mushrooms, sliced

2 large cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/2 cup dry white wine

4 slices mozzarella cheese



In a large skillet, brown chops over medium-high heat. Transfer to slow cooker.

In the same pan, cook onion in oil over medium heat until browned. Stir in mushrooms and green pepper, and cook until these vegetables are soft. Mix in pasta sauce, diced tomatoes, and white wine. Season with Italian seasoning, basil, and garlic. Pour over pork chops in slow cooker.

Cook on Low for 7 to 8 hours. To serve, place a slice of cheese over each chop, and cover with sauce.
