Slow & Low
The slow cooker has rapidly become the savior of our busy weeknights. You just assemble the ingredients, throw them in the pot, turn it on, and boom, you're done. The question becomes, what to cook? Well, take a look at these slow cooking ideas so you can transform your nights from good to dang delicious in less time than you think.
SLOW COOKER HACKS
- Preheat the slow cooker. Treat it like an oven and preheat it. The results will be much better.
- Sounds redundant, but adding the right amount of food to your slow cooker is instrumental for a delicious meal. You’ll be surprised how many times people miss this one.
- Layer it right. Dense veggies like carrots, parsnips and potatoes make for a nice base. The meat should come next, then the liquid. Closer to the end of your cooking time, you should put it the lighter veggies like broccoli or zucchini.
