It’s time to get out your Crock-Pot for a chance to win a year’s supply of groceries and Crock-pot Seasoning Mixes ($8,500 value). Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes has a recipe contest going that I entered and I encourage you to enter as well. I use my Crock-Pot year round. In the winter I tend to cook more with my Crock-Pots because the smell of a homecooked meal, throughout the day, helps shake away those winter blues. I’m always trying to create healthy new recipes so I was pleasantly surprised to see that these seasonings only have 10 calories per serving and 0 fat grams.

I received a Crock-Pot and some Crock-pot Seasoning Mixes (the original slow cooker) to help facilitate this product review. I can’t begin to describe the wonderful aroma these seasoning mixes have filled my kitchen with. Today I made a pork roast with the Crock-Pot original slow cooker savory pot roast seasoning mix. When the grands are not here I like to cook a little more spicy as you already know if you are a frequent visitor on my site. From spicy baked beans to pork roast, hot peppers are one of my top secret ingredients. Well, I guess it’s not a secret anymore. Keeping this secret ingredient in mind, my recipe turned out delicious and was as simple as tying my shoe.

I combined a small onion, 1 small hot pepper, 1/2 cup of water and one package of Crock-Pot seasoning mix and let it work it’s magic; cooking this in my new Crock-Pot, 4 hours on high, was all it took to make a delicious, juicy, tender pork roast for Sunday lunch. I topped this off with my homemade tomato relish (click here for the tomato relish recipe) and I devoured my serving(s) with the same enthusiasm of someone who has not eaten in days; although I never skip a meal. I take meal time very seriously. The tomato relish can be made and canned ahead of time. It took me approximately one full day for each batch I made. It just can’t be beat for topping off almost anything.

    Ive never used a mix, I usually put a pork shoulder in with some beans cayenne onion powder, garlic salt & pepper. 10-12 hours till it falls apart.

  2. Kim Reid says:

    I like to make pork bbq with onions, bbq sauce, some water with roast in the slow-cooker for 8 to 12 hours. I would love to try the Crock Pot BBQ Seasoning Mix!
    Thanks :)

  3. Rosemary Green says:

    I like to have breakfast hot and ready on those cold winter mornings. What could be better than oatmeal. follow the recipe on the box, except use twice the amount of liquid, water or juice. After you have the oatmeal and liquid mixed start adding fruit and/or fruits. This is a good time to use up some of that dry fruit you have stashed away. also this is a good place for nuts, (any variety) . You can use several different fruits and/or several different nuts. Chop everything to bite size pieces after you have that all mixed together. I like to smash down 1 or 2 bananas ,add them for creaminess and sweetness.
    After you are all done cutting and smashing and stirring. put it the crockpot. If it is to thick you should add a bit more liquid. Turn it to the lowest heat. If you wake up during the night give it a good stir and if it is to thick add another cup of liquid and stir again. The next morning stir and dish up. Serve with milk, cream or juice. Cinnamon and other spices make nice additions. Some people may need a bit of honey or another sweetener.

  4. crystal allen says:

    i would love to try the post roast seasoning. i would add a medium sized beef roast, with 2 lbs of baby carrots and 1 cut up onion and 3 baking sized potatoes that are sliced. i would add water and simmer all day. thanks

  5. Sue H. says:

    I’d try the Pot Roast Seasoning packet. All I do is put the roast in and I put fresh garlic in the roast. I put 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 an orange slices, new potatos,celery,carrots, and zucchini.I cook it on low for about 7-8 hrs.

  6. 2lb flanken, 4 potatoes, 2 onions, 1c barley, 1c beans, onion soup mix

    put it all in the crock pot, cover with water

    = Jewish style Cholent. you can also add lots of other spices.

  7. Ann Cluck says:

    4 lb roast
    6 med. potatoes
    6 med. onions
    small pkg of baby carrots

    Marinate your roast overnight in a mixture of soysauce, worchesterchire, louisiana hot sauce and one can of beer. The beer will tenderize a tough roast and the alchohol will cook out. In the morning place all the ingredients with the marinade into the crockpot. Add the pot roast seasoning mix. Cook on high for about two hours. Then reduce and cook until everything is tender. Serve with a nice crusty loaf of bread or dinner rolls.

    I would love to win and try these. Thanks

  9. andrew hyde says:

    2 lbs of pinto beans,,,a can of dark ale, a whole ham hock, 5 quarts of water,onion soup mix, two teaspoons of minced garlic,and a generous helping of cajon spice

  10. Betsy Rubendall Barnes says:

    Right now, I slow cook a pork roast with a can of root beer, when its done, I add bbq sauce. I would add the bbq pulled pork seasoning in while I’m cooking. Then, if anyone wants a certain bbq sauce, they could use it :)

  11. Lisa D. says:

    I’ve never used the flavor packets before but I love cooking with my crockpot in the fall and winter. Especially tender, flavorful beef dishes and stews. Thank you!

  12. I would try the pot roast packet. Right now I brown the meat first with spices on it. Put it in the croc pot with potaotes, onions, carrots, and celery. I add coke or orange juice, tomatoe juice, and water and let cook all day. Then make a gravy with the browning!

  13. Just like my grandma… Brown your roast, either beef or pork roast, preferrably in a cast iron skillet. Put in crockpot and add onins,celery,potatoes and carrots. Make a gravy using the pan drippings or use already prepared gravy and add to the crockpot and cook on low for about 6 hours. Delish and tender!!

  14. Beth Meckowski says:

    I like to make pulled pork. I use 1 cup Italian dressing, 1 packet of taco seasoning and 1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce. Weird Congo but it comes out awesome.

  15. Patrick Kelley says:

    I go simple.
    Pot roast
    Turn it on. Cook for 8 hours. Enjoy.

  16. Nikki Olandese says:

    I’ve never used any of the packets before, but pot roast is my families favorite from the crockpot. I use a 2.5-3 lbs chuck roast, cut up some carrots, quarter a few onions and half some baby red potatoes. Then I add a packet of ranch dressing and a packet of italian dressing. I put enough water in to just cover the roast. So good!!

  17. Elizabeth Bowden says:

    I have been using my crockpot ALOT more in recent months and am about to do a large crockpot freezer meal cooking day. I’ve been testing a view recipes out lately and this one is by far my family’s favorite. It’s healthy, light and ohhh so yummy. I haven’t seen a seasoning mix to add to it though.

    Crockpot Lemon Pepper Chicken Breast
    Add 1 small pad of butter to the bottom of the crock
    Cut up as many carrots as you’d like and add them to the bottom
    Add 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
    Add the juice of 1-2 lemons
    Add lemon pepper seasoning, onion powder (or chopped onions if you like), dash of garlic powder, poultry seasoning and/or roasted herb chicken seasoning, or both like I do
    Cook on low for 8 hours-chicken will fall apart
    Serve over rice and use a little of the juice in the bottom of the crock to pour over the rice

    I have prepared this at night and left it in the fridge-no issues there.

  18. My favorite crock pot meal is boneless pork chops that I brown up first and put in the crock pot with cream of mushroom soup and green beans. It is so good and great on a cold day! Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful giveaway!


  19. Jennifer Willard says:

    I have never cooked in a crockpot before and i have always wanted to! My mom always made amazing roasts and stews in hers growing up and i would love to have one to make them myself

  20. angela dupree says:

    One of my favorite is sweetish meatballs, Fill the crock with meatballs, pour a can of mushroom soup and add a can full of milk …Let it cook , fast easy and yummy…I wonder if the have a season pack for this! If they do I want to try it.

    • I’ve never made this dish but it sounds so good! I’m going to try it, thanks for sharing. And thanks to everyone else too. I’m jotting down some of your recipes to try.

  21. Ricci says:

    I have never used the packets but I make pork in the crock pot for pulled BBQ sandwiches so I would use the pork seasoning for that.

  22. Joni Caraway says:

    I like the pot roast seasoning mix. I take a beef roast cut in i inch cubes and marinate it in balsamic vinegar and lee & perrins for about two hours turning every thirty minutes, I then use one large onion chopped, 1/2 cup red bellpepper chopped, 1/2 cup green bellpepper chopped, two cloves chopped garlic then add the pot roast seasoning mix and cook for about three hours or until tender. I then add one cup sour cream and 4 ounces cream cheese. Serve with cooked egg noodles.
