Why include my best slow cooker recipes aka Langsamkocher Rezepte, on a website that's supposed to have quick recipes? Well, nothing is much quicker that spending a few minutes in the kitchen in the morning. Then, leave for a day at work or shopping, and then come home to a dinner that just takes a few more minutes to finish off.
Buy some fresh bread on the way home, or make a quick salad. Dinner's ready. As well, these recipes are often more economical. One can use less tender cuts of meat. Perfect way to use my new Cuisinart multi-cooker (slow cooker).
The slow cooker is also great for cooking soups - especially ones that use dried peas or beans. The green split pea soup is a good example. Throw everything in quickly in the morning, and it will be ready for you once you step in the door after a busy day at work.
Or, how about a pot roast for supper? Just put everything in the crockpot before you leave for the day; you can even get it ready the night before. Then, come home to the delicious homemade German pot roast dinner. It's one of the best crock pot recipes.
I had to check this one out myself. It appears that Crock-Pot is a U.S. trademark for a slow cooker. It's become a term that's used generically. In the U.K., the Slo-Cooker is the trademark for the same thing.
