Whether you find yourself using your slow cooker multiple times a week or just whenever your extended family comes over, you need to see these tips. They’ll help you learn about your slow cooker, cook perfect meals every time and make cleaning up a breeze!
1 – Add Any Dairy Products Last
When you’re cooking a recipe for a long period of time, no matter how hot, dairy products can curdle after awhile. No one wants clumpy cheese or milk. Instead, don’t put the dairy products in until near the end.
2 – The Same Can Be Said For Pasta, Veggies And Beans
Although you can cook a huge pot full of grandma’s famous spaghetti sauce in a slow cooker, you shouldn’t cook the noodles in the sauce the whole time. In order to get the noodles to be al dente, you want to add them to the sauce in the last 10 minutes, or cook them separately on the stove top. The same goes for veggies and bean. They’ll turn to mush if cooked for too long.
