I bought myself a crockpot a couple weeks ago and it has been used quite a bit in my house. So far I’ve made a lamb stew and some chicken stock. The pic is of pork ribs in a tomato sauce my mom cooked up last night. I have to say it’s been a nice addition to the kitchen.
I love it for a number of reasons:
1. Meat cooked slowly gets nice and tender and flavorful
2. It’s super easy, just chop up few things, dump it in and voila
3. It’s nice to come home to a delicious smelling house with food all ready to eat 🙂
The crockpot I got is a Rival 3-quart slow cooker from Walmart (costs 20$). Not big enough to make full meals for 4 people, but great for small meals or just for meat. I’ll be looking up plenty of crockpot recipes in the next little while.
