The best part about slow-cooked food is that it doesn’t really take up too much of your time. All you need to do is prep the ingredients, pop them into a slow cooker, and let it do its work while you go about your day and chores. You’ll need a slow-cooker, however, but the appliance is truly a worthy investment.
The genius behind a slow cooker includes its ability to give you warm, hearty, and comforting meals at the end of any long day. Extended hours of cooking at a fixed, low temperature ensures that whatever food you’re cooking comes out deliciously tender and perfect for a pick-me-up. It’s also a great option for working adults, especially late after a day’s work, when a hot meal is really all one is craving!
If you’ve got a casserole, you can cook your dinners ahead of time, stews and one-pot-treats that keep well and deepen in flavour over the course of the day. Then, when you’re ready to eat, pop it over the stove to heat briefly, and you’ve got a meal on your hands.
