The pulled pork is just a seasoning mix that I buy.
The Roast beef is Beef Broth mixed with a package of onion soup mix. I add in celery, carrots, Potatoes and Onion. I use the broth to make gravy when its done cooking.
oh boy! Thank you for sharing I am definately going to have to steal some of these they actually sound really yummy!! I might have to leave out the red pepper and the green pepper from two of them though as i dont like them haha! Will that change the way the recipe turns out, at all?
EDIT: Oh how big is your family? Just wondering so I can adjust amounts accordingly
they were all cook on low for 6-7 hours or high for 4-5.
Chicken & pork I find need less time or it ends up being shredded at the end. I dont think id cook either more than 5-6 hours. I am still trying to master cook times with chicken and pork so that it comes out nicely. I think it really depends on your cooker. I just got a new one so we shall see.
the hamburger/sloppy joes is apparently a fast cooking recipe so I would becareful with that one.
