Your choice of beef (to fit crock-pot)
1 pkg. dry Ranch dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
1 pkg. dry Brown Gravy mix
1 cup water
Put beef in pot.
Mix together all the dry mixes, then add water, pour over meat and cover & cook on high 4-6 hours.
Until meat is tender.
The first time I made it I didn`t have the Italian Dressing mix so I added a pkg. of Onion Soup Mix.I have to say I liked that better.
If you use more water you might want to add more Brown Gravy mix to make a thicker sauce.

Mushroom Chicken

4 boneless/skinless chicken breast (or any pieces you like)
1 can cream of mushroom soup.
1 can water

Place chicken in crock pot (or sauce pan for stove top cooking)
mix soup & 1 can of water together
pour over chicken
cook on medium heat until boiling then reduce heat and cook until chicken is really tender & falling apart.

Serve over noodles or rice or dressing....or???

Cola Chicken

4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 cup ketchup
1 12oz. can cola (pepsi, coke, etc.)

Put chicken in a non-stick pan.
Mix together ketchup and cola, pour over chicken.
Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and cook 45 minutes.
(turning chicken a few times, while cooking...to prevent from sticking to pan)
Uncover, turn up the heat and continue to cook until the sauce
becomes thick and adheres to the chicken.
It turns into the most incredible BBQ sauce. Yummmm!

You can double the recipe and use more pieces of
chicken....wings...would be ideal...add some hot sauce....presto "Hot Wings"!

I have used Ribs, just as good.

I tried this recipe with 'meatballs'....was equally
as good...served over rice.

I found another variation.....omit the ketchup and add a small jar of Salsa (any variety).

Also tried beef stew cuts......that was pretty good.....I can see
myself making this again.
Served both over rice.....think the stew cuts would have been just as
good over noodles.

Gonna try some butterfly cut pork chops..or boneless chops¦or pork steaks should be good!

Try little cocktail wieners/sausages for appetizers.
