Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

2 lbs ground beef
1 cup onion-flavored bread crumbs
2 packets onion soup mix
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder
2 eggs

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl until well mixed. Shape into meatballs and brown in a large skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Drain meatballs on paper towels while making the sauce.

2 cans (6-oz each) tomato paste
2 large onions, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sweet pickle relish
1/2 cup beef broth
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tsp salt
2 tsp dry mustard

Combine all sauce ingredients in a crock pot or slow cooker and stir to mix well.  Transfer the meatballs to the cooker. Place lid on cooker and cook on low 5 to 6 hours or on high 2 to 3 hours.
