Slow Cooker

Anonymous

Does anyone know how to use a slow cooker? I picked up one and I am trying to get it to work, but I don't know where to start. It is an older model... been around for maybe 30 years. Is that still good for a slow cooker appliance?

Any slow cooker recipes you can share too?

Thanks!! :)

We have a slowcooker and it's awesome. We use it often to make meals that is quick to put together and lasts a few days. I don't know how well a 30 year old slowcooker will work but I assume it's probably similar to the modern ones. Throw all your ingredients in, add liquids, cook for 4-10hrs (depending on your recipe) and voila! you've got a delicious meal at hand.

I think every slowcooker will cook a little differently. So you might need to use it a few times to know whether your slowcooker needs more/less water. If you don't add enough water, things will burn. So if your food burns the first time, don't give up. Just add more liquids the next time. :)

I've recently discovered this website that's pretty good. You can also just google for recipes using keywords such as slowcooker and crockpot.

Good luck and have fun!

Hi,
Slow cookers are great. You can throw a roast in frozen with 1 pkg of onion soup mix and a 1 cup water on low and when you get home it will be perfect. I was just talking to someone yesterday who puts frozen small chickens in with a bit of water and has chicken dinner. You can also cut up veggies and meat and put soup makings in there. My Hubby did that with chicken meat, veggies, a bay leaf and some spices and when I got home I added the noodles for about 45 min.
Check out www.allrecipes.com It is my favourite website for recipes and they have tons of good slow cooker ideas.
