So what would your best friend do for you in the kitchen? Tell you to go relax while he or she fixes a delicious meal for your family? Look after your health with low-fat recipes? Save you money on food as well as the energy needed to cook it?
Your slo-cooker does all these things for you, making it your best appliance friend ever. You can go to work, go shopping or go to the beach, all day, while it cooks away. When you come home, the meal will be ready, needing perhaps only a brief finishing touch such as thickening the gravy.
Less fat is needed with this method of cooking, as it uses the moisture from the food with maybe a small amount of added liquid. Lower fat in your meal saves calories and is healthier in other ways too. The long cooking will tenderize lean cuts of meat to perfection.
Added to all this is the energy savings over cooking on the stove or in the oven. You can also save money on groceries with less expensive meats and other ingredients. As for the extra time you will have for other things – well, that’s priceless!
