Suggestions for making recipes in your sluggish cooker
Nearly all of the recipes beneath have directions for making them in your sluggish cooker or crockpot, but when they don’t, I’ve a number of simple ideas for changing stovetop recipes into sluggish cooker meals!
- Timing. The overwhelming majority of my sluggish cooker recipes will be cooked on excessive for 3-4 hours or on low for 7-8.
- Liquid ratio. As a basic rule of thumb, when you’re changing a stovetop recipe to a sluggish cooker one I’d advocate lowering the liquid by about 1 cup. Cooking in a sluggish cooker creates extra moisture and liquid naturally.
- Cooking rooster. Sure, you may put uncooked meat proper into your sluggish cooker to cook dinner! When you’re cooking a recipe with rooster, be happy to cook dinner the rooster breast or thighs in your sluggish cooker entire with the remainder of the substances. As soon as it’s absolutely cooked you may take away it, shred it, and add it again to the sluggish cooker to simmer.

- Including greens & pastas. Stir in any gentle greens like peas or spinach on the very finish of cooking. The identical goes for any pasta or noodles (although you may as well cook dinner these individually).
