The Easiest Slow Cooker Recipe Ever-Swiss Steak
1 round steak
1 can tomatoes
salt and pepper
This is so easy! Lay the round steak in the bottom of the slow cooker. You can use a less expensive cut of meat because it will be cooking all day. Add one can of tomatoes. The tomatoes tenderize the meat. Slice one onion and add on top. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
That's it! Set on LOW and cook 8 hours. Delicious! Serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
"No Peek" Chicken

3/4 cup long grain rice
2 cans mushroom soup

Butter the slow cooker. Mix rice, mushroom soup, water and parsley. Put in bottom of slow cooker. Place chicken on top. Sprinkle onion soup mix over all. Cook on LOW 6-8 hours or on HIGH 3-4 hours. Do not open during cooking. Serves 4.
Sicilian Meat Loaf
My favorite meat loaf recipe is delicious!
2 lbs lean ground beef
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce (I usually use leftover sauce but you can use the jar) Reserve some to put on top after meat loaf is done.

1/2 cup cracker crumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
2 cloves garlic
3 teaspoons parsley
8 slices ham, deli thin sliced
8 oz. (1 cup) mozzarella cheese, grated
Mix first 9 ingredients. Pat out to 10 X 16 on double layer waxed paper. Arrange ham on top of meat (overlapping) and leave a border. Sprinkle cheese on top of ham. Roll up loaf. Place in greased slow cooker. Cover. Cook on LOW 8-10 hours, HIGH 4-6 hours. Spread reserved spaghetti sauce on top. Cover. Cook 15 minutes until sauce is heated. Serves about 8.
