Slow Cooker Spells Comfort Food
Sun Jan 06, 2013 6:29 amForum Host
Comfort foods are rich, filling, easy to make and eat, and they are delicious.
Combine those with the crockpot and you have crockpot comfort foods, with some sure-fire winners! The crockpot cooks these recipes to perfection, and you hardly have to do a thing.
Do you own one of these miracle appliances? Whether you say crockpot or slow cooker, it is the same well loved appliance in our kitchen. I have been feeding my family with this helper for a long time and still use it at least once week. I now have the large Crockpot and smaller version that I use more often at this point.
For those who are not aware we have a special forumhttp://www.food.com/bb/viewforum.zsp?f=35 hosted by Red Apple Member #168771

I find that a lot of recipes show times that are too long for modern slow cookers. I usually don't want meat falling off the bone - I like to be able to slice things. So I watch the time carefully the first time I make something.
I also find that meats taste better if they've been browned ahead of time, for most recipes. I deglaze the pan and add that to the slow cooker.
The slow cooker does provide a lot of flexibility. I have my ancient 3 or 3 1/2 qt one that I use a great deal - the lid broke a long time ago, so I cover with a double layer of foil and then stick a saucepan lid on top of that - none of them are quite the right size, but this works for me. My larger one is 5 quarts.
