    Question: crock pot veggie beef soup recipe

    I found a recipe by Liz P. and would really like to try it today, but she didnt mention browning the stew meat before placing in crock pot, cooking for 12 hours on low or 6-8 on high. Do you know if it has to be browned first or not?

    A lot of recipes do not call for browning meat that goes into the crockpot, but I almost always do brown it. When doing something like beef, if I am pressed for time, I will brown the whole chuck roast and then cut it into pieces - so long as some of the sides are browned you will get the benefit of a richer flavor. Remember to deglaze the skillet with some of the liquid the recipe calls for to get the fond into the dish.

    Doesn't have to be browned first, but browning always deepens the flavor. Deglaze the browning pan with some of the water or stock, or a splash of wine, and add it to the crock pot.

    If you haven't the time, go ahead and make it without browning. Browning is always an optional step, although it does deepen the flavor.
