Bevy's Easy Cheesy Cube Steak
A package (usually 4 to 6 medium sized) of cube steaks
2 cans of cheddar cheese soup (or one jar of Ragu cheddar cheese sauce)
spices to taste (onion powder, garlic etc)
Smother with Adolf's Tenderizer (according to my sister-in-law it adds
to the flavor) and spice up the meat to your desired taste. Put the meat in the crock pot
and dump in the soup (or sauce) and cook at least 8 hours on high. The longer the
better for more tender meat. For a one pot meal add potatoes half way through cooking.
They take on a nice cheese flavor. This will usually serve four people for more
just increase the amount of the soup or do a combination of both one jar of Ragu and one
can of soup. It's a throw in what you have kind of meal. Don't have cube
steak, use round steak or basically any type of meat you have on hand. Very yummy.

EASY B-B-Q CHICKEN
(this really isn't a recipe but it is my most favorite thing to do with my
crockpot. It is so quick and easy....kind of recipes I like)
I put 6-8 chicken breasts in the crockpot. (easy so far, huh?) Next I pour a bottle of my
favorite BBQ sauce over the top and stir it until all chicken pieces are well coated. I
like to use KC Masterpiece but you use what you like. And.......that's it.....just cook in
there 6 or more hours. If putting frozen chicken pieces in there then allow an extra hour
or two to cook. When you're ready to eat, it comes out just like shredded meat. It is sooo
tender. We usually put them on hamburger buns. My hubby places the whole breast on his bun
but my kids and I usually shred our chicken with a fork first and then place it on our
buns. Easy and yummy!!
