Here are my favorites for chicken, beef and pork:
This one is from www.allrecipes.com. It's called "Easy and Delicious Chicken" Serves 6
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 (8 ounce) bottle Italian-style salad dressing
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 cup chicken broth
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
In a slow cooker, combine the chicken breasts and Italian-style dressing.
Cover, and cook on Low for 6 to 8 hours.
Drain off the juices, and shred the chicken meat. In a medium bowl, mix the soup, broth, cream cheese, basil, thyme, salt, and pepper. Pour over the chicken in the slow cooker. Continue cooking on Low for 1 hour.

"Cozy Cottage Beef Stew" Serves 8
3/4 pound beef stew meat, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 onions, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 large stalk celery, minced
2 carrots, finely chopped
1/4 pound green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped
3 potatoes, peeled and diced
1 (14.5 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
2 (14.5 ounce) cans fat-free chicken broth
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 (10.5 ounce) cans beef consomme
In a slow cooker, combine beef, onions, garlic, celery, carrots, green beans, mushrooms, and potatoes. Pour in the tomatoes and tomato sauce. Season with bay leaf, pepper, thyme, and marjoram. Stir together chicken broth and flour. Pour chicken broth mixture and beef consomme into slow cooker, and stir.
Cover, and cook on Low 6 to 10 hours. Remove bay leaf before serving
And for pork, I don't know where this came from, but it's sooo easy:
Put a package of boneless pork ribs in the crock pot with enough beef broth to cover them about 3/4 of the way. (maybe 2 cups)
Cook on low for at least 6 hours.
About an hour before you want to eat, preheat the oven to 350, drain the meat. If your crock pot has an oven-proof stoneware insert (most do nowadays), put the meat back in the slow cooker and use two forks to shred/separate it. If no stoneware insert, put it in a baking dish.
Pour 3/4 bottle to a full bottle of BBQ sauce on it (Sweet Baby Ray's is our fave) and stir it around until all the meat is covered.
Put the meat into the oven for half an hour or so.
Serve it on hamburger buns.
The leftovers freeze nicely for later!
