Can crock pot recipes be used in a counter top roaster?

I've never owned or used a crock pot, but I do have a Rival counter top roaster that I use for certain recipes: Cornish game hen, pot roast, things I'd normally roast in the oven. But I'm wondering if I can use other "slow cooker" recipes in the roaster? For example, I was looking for stuffed pepper recipes online, and if you're going to cook them in the oven, you still have to cook the rice first and brown the meat. However, the crock pot recipe just has you stuff the raw ingredients into the peppers and then crock away.
