Passover recipes?

Since Passover is coming up next week, I was wondering if anyone had any good Passover crockpot recipes they might suggest.  Of course, I know I can do a roast or a chicken, but does anyone have any ideas for more typically Passover-y foods?  Something a bit different - I do crock pot roast and chicken all the time.

Why is it that since I've got two kids AND a full time job, I'm the one who always hosts all the big mega-cooking extended family holidays like Passover and Thanksgiving and family parties and such?  :-)

Can you, like, decline?

And comput may be good to make in a crock (or...however you spell it...I just eat it mostly).

Alas, no, I can't. I do enjoy it, really, it's just a bit stressful trying to juggle everything. This year it'll only be a few people coming, anyway, so not a big deal.

This pot roast is Passover-safe if you use Kosher for Passover ketchup and tomato soup! It's a variation on my mom's Passover tradition.

This sounds yummy. We're not that kosher that I buy special Passover condiments like ketchup. I definitely want to try this one.

I usually do a roast chicken one night, but for the family sedar I always do a brisket. Luckily my family sedars are small so I don't have to stress too much over it. This is the first year I'll be doing one in a crock pot though, as this is the first year I've had one big enough to hold a brisket!

Here's the recipe I use:

1 brisket 4-5 pounds
2 cloves of garlic
1 onion
2 stalks celery
1 C red wine vinegar
1 tsp beef bouillon
2 tsp salt
a little pepper, probably about 1 tsp or so... I never measure this

Put brisket in pan (crock for this year) fat side down. Chop onion, garlic, and celery. Sprinkle on and around the brisket. Mix the bouillon, salt, and pepper into the vinegar and pour over the brisket trying to evenly distribute. Check every so often and add water as needed.

I'm hoping in the crock I shouldn't need to add any water. I'm going to cook on low for about 10 hours and hope it's done on time.

You can also do chicken soup in the crock if you prefer to make some matzah ball soup your main course. I've never done any other typical Pesach recipes in the crock, but I'm sure there are recipes out there for just about anything.

Yum. I am amazed at how many different brisket recipes there are for the crock pot - and that they ALL sound delicious. Thanks!

I use my crock pot during the seder for an unusual dish we call Wet Matzoh. It is a family tradition. Take the icky jelly stuff that the gefilte fish comes in and dump it into the crock pot. Add one and a half times as much water. Add chopped carrots, onions and celery. Let simmer. Drop the gefilte fish in for about 30 minutes to warm up. Take sheets of matzoh and break into maybe 4 pieces. Let the matzoh get nice and soft. I take the actual fish out and put it on a platter, then take all the stuff and put it in a tureen. Serve. I know it sounds odd but my family LOVES it. Wouldn't be Passover without it.

Oooh, this sounds interesting. Could you do this in a regular pot on the stove rather than in the crock pot? And do you saute the onions and other veggies first or dump them in raw?

Sure you can do it on the stovetop too! That's how my Mom does it. I prefer to saute all the veggies before dumping them but if you are short on time you can just dump 'em in raw.
