What are some good four or five ingredient slow cooker recipes you assemble at one time?

Well, I have a Hub on this - I think it's on Best Gadgets for the Kitchen, the pressure cooker - something like that LOL.
In a nutshell, you need to soak your beans, peas, lentils overnight to let them "drink" water which makes them easier to cook. They are hard as rocks and need softening before cooking. After draining the water, add a hunk of dried meat with bones (beef ribs, ham hocks, etc.) a peeled onion, carrot, 4 cloves of garlic, tomato paste, a little salt and pepper and celery tops to add a big boost of flavor. Fasten the lid securely and let it cook. Be sure to lower the temperature once the mixture starts a-bubbling, so that the beans soften to perfection over a nice slow cook (the food seem to tastes better if it's not "rushed").
Here's a killer pot roast:
Cut up a couple of carrots, a couple yellow onions, and 3 or 4 potatoes
Place a 3-5 pound chuck roast in the crockpot
Tuck the veggies in around it
Sprinkle one package dry onion soup mix on the meat
Spread one can cream of mushroom soup over that
Pour half a soup can of water around the edge over the vegetables
Cook on low 12 hours or high 6 hours
This makes wonderful gravy that you can reheat with the leftover roast and pour over mashed potatoes. Not diet food, but hey, man does not live by rice cakes alone!
