Bored with roasts

and too cold for salads - what can I cook for Sunday lunches for the family until it gets warm enough for BBQ? (Slow cooker suggestions are my favourite). This has been such a looooong winter!

This is my favorite website for crockpot recipes: http://crockpot365.blogspot.com/

And, my current favorite (not form that website):
French Dip Sandwiches
Ingredients:
1 (4 pound) boneless beef roast
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 beef bouillon cube
1 bay leaf
3 whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon garlic powder
20 slices French bread

Directions:
Remove and discard all visible fat from the roast. Place trimmed roast in a slow cooker.
In a medium bowl, combine soy sauce, bouillon, bay leaf, peppercorns, rosemary, thyme, and garlic powder. Pour mixture over roast, and add enough water to almost cover roast. Cover, and cook on Low heat for 10 to 12 hours, or until meat is very tender.
Remove meat from broth, reserving broth. Shred meat with a fork, and distribute on bread for sandwiches. Used reserved broth for dipping.

Happy cooking!

I love that website too

I must try that recipe - trouble is DH wouldn't think sandwiches were a "dinner" (yes, even if I do fries or something with it. Men!!) I could do it for a Saturday though It sounds yummy

Lunch as in the mid day meal or dinner as in the evening meal?

I do roast chicken a lot as you can season it up different ways. Our favorite is to take a 3 poundish chicken cut into 8 pieces (2 legs, 2 thighs, 2 breasts and 2 wings) and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper, garlic and rosemary (done to taste). Place in a roasting pan and surround with cut up potatoes, carrots, onions and garlic that have been tossed with olive oil and seasoned the same way. Then you just roast at about 350-375 degrees until done. You can do a pork roast the same way (and that's what I'm making tonight, but putting it out on the grill- in a pan of course).

For a lighter meal I do oven fried chicken fingers with oven fries and a salad or veggie.

We sometimes have a main meal at lunchtime on Sunday, or sometimes evening depending on what we're doing (if we're not out we have it mid-day so there's no big pile of dirty dishes in the evening)

I do roast chicken quite often, or chicken pieces, in various ways and I love it but DH always moans about the greasy dishes. basically he wants a roast with roast potatoes and 2 veg but no washing up Maybe we should go out instead Point is we have it a lot in winter - I've even done a whole chicken in the crockpot, but there's the ripping the skin off which is a bit of a pain.

I don't know what I'm looking for really, do I? Maybe I'll make a case for the French dip

I hope the case for the French Dip goes over well! It is after all a roast just served a different way.

I searched my recipes but most are roasts or sandwich type recipes.

Another of my favorites is:
Chicken breasts
onion chopped
cream of mushroom soup
Serve over prepared rice.

And this is another family fav (but not sure how your DH feels about soups or mexican type foods):
Taco Soup
We serve with tortilla chips too.

Soup is a snack/light lunch/starter for DH I've got some beef coming Saturday so the french dip is looking good (although he was saying we might go out Sunday - even better!!!)

There's a fabulous crock pot chicken breast recipe in the current edition of Midwest Living....I went out and bought all the ingredients today and am making it tomorrow. The secret ingredients are mushrooms, cream of mushroom soup, and a carton of veggie or chive cream cheese spread with a splash of wine. The creamy breast and mushrooms can go over either rice or pasta. YUM

I do that sometimes as well - in theory there's enough for leftovers but mostly with 3 boys it all goes In fact DS(11) made it last week to practice for his Scout badge (but it took a LOT of supervision so I think we'll do something less ambitious on the day - quite apart from the fact it takes too long for a scout meeting)

I am on the Whats for Dinner thread over on the Community Boards. Have you ever looked there for ideas? There are a lot of quick dinner ideas with the recipes listed on the first page.

Thanks for the tip - I'll try that I did Crockpot Lady's rootbeer pulled pork for just me and the two DS last Saturday - it made 6 rolls full of pork (3 are in the freezer ) with fries on the side, but I found it really sweet Still not got to french dip - I might just do it when we hacve a day off and not tell him till its on the table
