CROCK POT ITALIAN SAUSAGE SPAGHETTI

Crock Pot Italian Sausage Spaghetti2 - CopyThis Crock Pot Italian Sausage Spaghetti is one of our favorites.   Just add some Italian bread or cornbread and you have a meal.  This dish is spicy and a great comfort food for cold weather. If you don’t like spicy, cut back on the seasonings.  Everyone I serve this dish loves it.

1 to 1 1/2 pounds Italian sausage

1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking oil

3 green peppers, seeded and cut into rings. (I use one orange, one green and one red)

1 large onion, peeled and cut into rings

1 (10 ounce) can tomatoes and green chilis

1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce

1 (14.5 ounce) can chicken broth

1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon dried basil

1 bay leaf

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

Few drops hot sauce (Optional)

8 ounces thin or angel hair pasta

Brown the Italian sausage in a skillet on top of the stove in the oil.  Add the pepper and onion rings to the crock pot and place browned Italian sausage on top.  In a large bowl combine the tomatoes and green chilis, tomato sauce, chicken broth, oregano, garlic, basil, bay leaf, black pepper, salt and hot sauce.   Stir to combine.  Pour over the sausage, onions and peppers.  Cook on low heat in the crock pot 7 to 8 hours or high 4 to 5 hours.  Remove sausage from pot and set aside.  Turn the temperature to high on the crock pot and add the spaghetti for about 30 minutes until tender and cooked. (I use the thin or angel hair because it cooks in 30 minutes.  If you use the thick it will take a little longer). Remove bay leaf before serving.   You can add the sausage back to the pot if you want to reheat it or just serve over the spaghetti and peppers on a platter.  Makes 6 to 8 servings. Enjoy!

CROCK POT ROUND STEAK WITH PEPPERS AND ONION

Round Steak with Peppers and Onions TSLC (2)This is an easy crock pot dish that I have made for many years and great comfort food.   It always goes over big with both friends and family.

1 (2 to 3 lb.) round steak, cut in serving size pieces
1/2 to 1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon oregano or Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup oil (I use Canola Oil)
1 large onion, cut in rings
2 green peppers, cut in rings (can use red or orange, too. I use all three)
2  (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes
 
 Cut round stead in serving size pieces.  Roll in flour that has been seasoned with the pepper, salt, oregano and garlic powder.  Brown in oil on each side.  You don’t completely cook the meat just brown it good.  Place browned meat in slow cooker and put the rest of the ingredients on top of the meat.  Cook on high for 4 hours or low for about 6 hours. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
 
This is wonderful served over mashed potatoes!  Can also be served over rice or pasta. You could make this in a skillet on top of the stove, too. Just brown the steak, add remaining ingredients, cover and simmer until steak is tender.  Enjoy.

CROCK POT COCA COLA PORK CHOPS

Crock Pot Coca Cola Pork Chops -TSLCThis Crock Pot Coca Cola Pork Chop recipe is real easy and real good!  This makes a great main dish and if your family likes pork chops they will love this recipe.

4 to 6 pork chops (I used bone-in, center cut chops but any pork chops will do)

1 cup coca cola (can use diet coke, pepsi, or any cola drink)

2 tablespoons brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup ketchup

1 cup chopped onion

2 tablespoons grape jelly (Optional)

1 teaspoon minced garlic

Brown chops in skillet on top of the stove.  Place in crock pot. Whisk together the coke, brown sugar, black pepper, salt, ketchup, chopped onion, jelly and minced garlic with a wire whisk.  Pour over chops.  Cook 7 to 8 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high.  Serve chops with the gravy poured over them. Makes 4 to 6 servings. Enjoy!

Note:  These chops are so tender they just fall apart. You could double or triple this recipe and pour over just about any pork roast or ribs.  I like to serve them over my fried cornbread recipe or mashed potatoes.
