10 Best Camping Crockpot Recipes According to Fellow RVers

We haven’t been doing a lot of cooking items lately. But recently, someone asked our RV Lifestyle Facebook group about crockpot dinners and they got nearly 200 responses!

We can’t ignore that very active Facebook post and wanted to share some of your fellow RVers’ favorite crockpot recipes.

Why every RV kitchen should have a crockpot

Jennifer and I have a crockpot in our RV that gets a lot of use. As Katy mentioned, crockpots are a great (and easy) way to cook dinner while going out and doing what RVers do, whether that’s going to the beach, taking a walk, or taking a day trip into town.

We have a whole Amazon shopping list of our Favorite RV kitchen essentialsincluding crock pots, instant pots and everything you need in your RV kitchen.

10 Best Camping Crockpot Recipes According to Fellow RVers

We’ve selected a handful of crockpot camping recipes suggested by our Facebook members. If you want even more options, you can read all camping crockpot recipes here (it has nearly 200 comments!).

#1 Crockpot Cube Steak With (or Without) Gravy

This is actually a 2-in-1 recipe as it includes a gravy and non-gravy version (gravy version is shown above). Both versions use simple and affordable ingredients, which I believe are the foundation of any great camping recipe.

If you click on the link, you’ll see detailed instructions for both versions and easy-to-read recipe cards. Plus, they explain how to know when the steak is cooked so you don’t end up with tough meat.

#2 Crockpot Chicken Tacos


Is it Tuesday already? Because I’m ready for tacos! With Dana’s favorite recipe, you don’t have to wait until Tuesday to eat tacos. This recipe is easy to make any day of the week, and she says, “You can do so many different things with it.”

This recipe is on a website called “Spend with Pennies,” so you know it meets my favorite camping recipe criteria: affordable!

#3 Slow Cooker Coriander Lime Chicken

Jen shared this All Recipe that is as easy as combining salsa, taco seasoning mix, lime, cilantro, and chicken. She says, “We like to add sautéed peppers (or throw some in the slow cooker, too) and corn.”

It only takes about 4 hours to cook on high, or 6-8 hours on low. Mmmm… Can’t wait to try this one, Jen!

#4 Mississippi Pot Roast

This recipe has been mentioned a few times, so it must be good! Heather added the link above and the full title is actually: Mississippi Pot Roast (The BEST Pot Roast EVER).

I think Jennifer and I are going to move this one to the top of our dinner list. We love our some good pot roast! Make sure to click on the link above to read the directions.

  • a roast meat
  • ranch dressing mix
  • au jus jus mix
  • butter
  • spiced peperoncini peppers

#5 Turkey Vegetable Stew

Like what you see in the video? We would appreciate if you would subscribe to our YouTube channel (easy to do here) and consider “ringing the bell icon” to be notified of any new video from us. Thank you!

Speaking of Jennifer, I also want to share her favorite crockpot recipe. Believe me. I know from experience that this turkey vegetable stew is delicious! I got to smell this wonderful aroma while driving on many highways. Let’s just say I got to our destination faster than usual.

As Jennifer says in her recipe post, “one of the best things about crockpot meals is that you can cook them while you drive. We put the stove in the galley so it doesn’t slide off the counter as we drive.”

#6 dr. Pepper BBQ Ribs

I don’t have a link for this recipe, because you don’t need it! It’s literally 3 ingredients: ribs, BBQ sauce, and Dr. pepper. Yes, Doctor Pepper!

Here are Michele’s instructions: “Place ribs in your slow cooker, cut to fit as needed. Pour in 1 jar BBQ sauce and 1 cup Dr. Pepper. Cook on high 4 hours or low for 8.”

I’ve used the same recipe with pork roast before. It was delicious! So I’m sure these BBQ ribs are just as delicious. And now I’m wondering what other kind of meat I can eat with BBQ and Dr. pepper…

#7 Crockpot Chicken Cacciatore

Don’t let the fancy name fool you. This recipe is easy to make. Although, admittedly, it takes more ingredients than Michele’s Dr. Pepper ribs.

But the point is, it’s easy and delicious! Cheryle, who shared the recipe, suggests using boneless chicken in this recipe to shred tacos or top on a salad.

#8 Slow Cooker Coq au Vin with Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

Camping Crockpot Recipes

You had me with mashed potatoes, Sharon! With an even nicer name than the previous recipe, this recipe teaches you how to make coq au vin in an easy way.

This requires more ingredients than most of the recipes on this list, but it gives you a complete meal in one pot. A crock pot, yes. And boy does it look delicious!

#9 Chile Verde

This one doesn’t need a link to a recipe either, because it’s only 3 ingredients! All you have to do is toss pork shoulder, green salsa, and green enchilada sauce into the crockpot, and voila!

Sabrina suggests eating it with tortillas or over eggs. She also says it’s “very forgiving!…no measurements needed!”

#10 Crack Chicken

The last time I ate anything with “Crack” in the name was Amish Crack. And Amish Crack is worth driving for, so this suggestion caught my eye.

Turns out Crack Chicken is quite popular. You can google it and a whole bunch of recipes will pop up. The one I link to here is most similar to the one Johnnie shared with the group.

Ingredients you need:
chicken breasts
ranch dressing mix
cream cheese
cooked crumbled bacon
grated cheddar cheese
green onions
