PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- December 20, 2012

Kitchens across America have been Crockin’, rockin’ and rollin’ this slow
cooking season! Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes hosted its first ever “Crockin’ in
the USA” campaign this fall, encouraging families to get into the kitchen and
create tasty recipes using one of the new Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes. The
competition was fierce with hundreds of recipes entered, but the results have
left mouths watering across the United States.

Following the November 25^th deadline, food blogger and contest judge Hope
Comerford, along with the brand’s Facebook fans, voted for their favorite
recipe. After much delicious deliberation, Sherri Williams of Crestview,
Florida was crowned Crockin’ in the USA Champion for her “Braised Beef Short
Ribs” featuring Savory Pot Roast Crock-Pot Seasoning Mix.

“My inspiration was to make a hearty, stick-to-your-ribs, tasty meal for my
husband that would not require spending hours in the kitchen,” says Sherri. “I
work full time so I was able to prep everything the night before and just
throw it into my Crock-Pot® slow cooker along with the Seasoning Mixes. When I
got home, I just added final touches and dinner was served! The Crock-Pot
Seasoning Mixes make a perfect, easy seasoning solution during the busy
holiday season.”

In addition to winning free groceries for the entire year, Sherri will also
receive a year’s worth of Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes to use in her homemade
sauces, soups, beans, stews, and marinades. Sherri will also have the
opportunity to participate in the development of a new Crock-Pot Seasoning
Mixes product as the collection continues to expand. Sherri’s winning recipe
can be found on the Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes Facebook page for those who’d
like to create the delicious dish at home.


With a “designed for slow cooker” combination of herbs, spices and natural
flavors, each variety of Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes make it easy to prepare and
serve flavorful, family-friendly meals. Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes blend
affordability, accessibility and convenience into America’s most famous pot.
The mixes are available in three delicious varieties: Hearty Beef Stew, Savory
Pot Roast and BBQ Pulled Pork. But that’s not all; Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes
create more than just these classics. They make dozens of additional recipes
too. With so many meals made so easy, the new Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes are
must-haves for slow cooker lovers and busy families everywhere.

Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes are available in grocery stores nationwide for a
suggested retail price of $1.99. Target stores carry the line next to
Crock-Pot branded slow cookers, in the appliance section. Each seasoning
packet seasons 2 – 3 pounds of meat and vegetables in a slow cooker, producing
meals to feed 4 to 6 people. For more information and recipe ideas, please
