This is not technically a crock pot recipe, but I put everything except the meatballs in there and cooked on low all day. Then I cooked the meatballs on the stovetop to minimize grease and put them in the crock pot about an hour before I cut it off. I also cooked couscous (rice would work, too) and mixed it in when I cut the soup off.
This looks weird when you look at the ingredients but it is DELICIOUS! It also works with pork loin...I actually like the pork better than the beef.
I am making BBQ pulled pork in my crock pot tomorrow. The pork roast I bought was $5.24. I pour @ a cup of apple juice in the bottom of the crock pot add 1/2 C of brown sugar, add slices of an onion then add roast. I cook for 8 hours. After 8 hours I remove the roast and throw out the onion and juices. I pull apart the pork and put back in crock pot and add BBQ sauce and let cook one more hour.

2 pounds stew meat 1 tablespoon soysauce
1 large bell pepper, sliced 2 tablespoons corn starch
1 large sweet onion, sliced salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
2 cups boiling water 1 can stewed tomatoes, juice and all
2 beef bouillon cubes
Place your meat in the crock pot and toss in the veggies. Melt your bouillon cubes in the boiling water and stir in the 2tbs of cornstarch, it should be a bit thicker than water but not much. pour that in. toss in the rest of the ingredients and stir up. cover and cook on low all day. serve over noodles or rice. My family absolutely loves this.
Beef and Gravy:
2 pounds stew meat
3 large potatoes, unpeeled and cubed
4 cups boiling water
4 beef bouillon cubes
Melt the bouillon in the boiling water (like with peppered steak) add cornstarch until it thickens stirring well. add all the ingreds into your crockpot and cover and cook on low all day serve with noodles or rice
Crock pot Mac & Cheese:
3 cups cooked macaroni
1 pound velveeta, cubed
2 cups shredded mexican cheese
2 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
1 3/4 c. milk
1 can evaporated milk
3 eggs slightly beaten
3/4 c melted butter
toss in crock, stir well. cover and cook 2-3 hours stirring once or twice
Buffalo chicken wing dip
4 cooked and shredded chicken breasts
3 packages of cream cheese
1 bottle blue cheese
1 bottle franks red hot sauce
2 cups shredded cheddar.
in a medium sauce pan, melt the cream cheese over low heat until completely smooth. Add in hot sauce (however much you'd like) stir well. Pour into crock pot, add in blue cheese to thin out the cream cheese (you can also use ranch dressing) stir in the chicken and half of the cheddar. cover and cook on high for 1 hour stirring frequently. top with the rest of the cheddar and simmer on low for a half hour. turn the pot to warm and eat the dip with some tortilla chips.
I have more too, i'll add them later. I love my crockpot
2 lbs chuck roast (or any other cheap, tough cut o' meat)
2 packets mushroom gravy mix
2 packets herb gravy mix
cut the roast into 1 1/2 x 1 1/2 cubes. toss gravy mixes into a large ziploc, and coat the meat with it. sear the meat on each side in a heavy skillet coated in olive oil. toss everything into the crockpot (including whatever mix is left over in the bag), add a boullion cube and water to cover. the gravy thickens as it cooks, and it's awesome spooned over some garlic mashed potatoes, rice, or egg noodles.

It's a crockpot - you can throw practically anything in there.
