Crockstar Dinner Club
If you thought crockpot cooking got left behind in the 70s with your mom’s pot roast, you’ll love discovering all the exciting new talents this one-pot wonder is bringing to today’s food scene! In the mood for fajitas, Italian meatballs, pork chops, or peanut butter fudge cake? Thanks to Crockstar Dinner Club’s genius little ingredient packets, all you have to do is toss in the meat or other items, add the ingredient packet and let the crockpot work its magic. Then at the end of a long day, you come home to effortless comfort food ready for the family to devour. It really is that simple but it tastes as if you went all out with some elaborate recipe. It truly takes the ease of crockpot cooking to the next level by eliminating prep time. Brilliant!
Putting it all on the table
Owners Brittany and Jonathan Cramer created Crockstar from their home in 2016 with the goal of helping other busy families with mealtime. “I was a stay-at-home mom with four children in many different activities and we struggled to eat together as a family,” Brittany recalls. “Jonathan and I were too tired to cook at the end of the day so I started crock potting. If it didn’t go in the crockpot, I didn’t cook it.”
Now expanded to four metro locations, Crockstar’s shipping and fundraising sides of the business are booming as well. “We have shipped to all 50 states and three countries,” Brittany says, “and our products are also carried in boutiques in Oklahoma and other states.”
Of the more than 300 recipes available, Brittany has created about 290 of them. Who knew the humble crockpot could serve up such variety?! And these aren’t simple recipes. From the test kitchen and store in SW OKC, the staff cooks and tries the recipes numerous times before officially giving them the Crockstar label.
You’ll rarely be in one of their stores without seeing multiple customers buy the Baked Potato Soup. There must be something magic in that packet, like the dry chicken powder and special spice blend, because it is consistently a top seller. It only gets better when you add a little bacon, cheese, and chives to the top. Another favorite is the Thunder Chicken. “It’s a creamy Ranch chicken that explodes with flavor like the Thunder explodes on the court,” Brittany laughs. Rounding out the top three selections is the Dill Pickle Pot Roast. For real! It may sound odd, but the acidity tenderizes the meat, and the tangy kick amps up the flavor in the most unexpectedly delicious way. Another must-try is the Chicken & Bacon with Gravy. You won’t believe gravy that good can come from a packet. Even picky gravy people will fall in love with this one.
Every month, Crockstar features 10-15 different freezer meal packets with the liquid and spices combined for even faster preparation. Crockstar also offers many Keto, low-carb, soy-free, and dairy-free options, and 90% of their meals are gluten-free. The crockpot desserts, dips, and appetizers make great party foods too!
