  • Slow-cooker black bean chili

    • MiChal.626 on December 24, 2014

      I've made it in a pressure cooker (set at high pressure for ~ 15 minutes)

  • Easy company beef

  • Spicy pot roast

    • eheimsoth on March 21, 2010

      double sauce ingredients; also, add ground cayenne pepper since title indicates "spicy". GREAT recipe that entire family loved.

  • Easy barbecued venison

    • micheleK on July 17, 2011

      Easy. Took suggestion to marinate meat in vinegar and rosemary overnight. Meat was definitely tender, sauce was fine (onions are added to the BBQ sauce).

  • Tangy barbecue sandwiches

    • Breadcrumbs on July 26, 2015

      I'm culling cookbooks and my slow-cooker books were at the top of my list to go however I found a note in this book about this recipe. Evidently, many moons ago I made it and we thought it was excellent. I also added an undocumented amount of beer to the bbq sauce it seems. In any event, this note saved the book from the purge and I'll have to try this one again some day. I also subbed red bell peppers for the celery as I'm not a big fan of celery.

  • Chicken in wine

  • Chicken in mushroom gravy

  • Scandinavian beans

    • vikingcook on April 04, 2016

      These are delicious! I make them for every barbecue my family has all year. I cook the pinto beans in the pressure cooker to save time.

Publishers Text

Dig out the slow cooker. Add a second and a third if you wish. Fill one with main dish fixins and the others with go-alongs. Do it in the morning - or between work and after-school events. Come home to richly-flavored, ready-to-serve food.

Slow cookers are experiencing a comeback - and with good reason. They are friends on a day of running errands. They allow easy entertaining with no last-minute preparation. They are miracles for potluck meals, whether in your home or someone else's. And vegetarians won't find a better way to work with dried beans.

Slow cookers are gentle with the food budget - less expensive ingredients flourish in their slow, moist heat. This cookbook offers the range of recipes where slow cookers do well. Appetizers and Snacks, Soups and Stews, Main Dishes (with and without meat) Vegetables and Go-Alongs, Desserts and Beverages.

Tips and Hints are dropped in throughout, urging one additional small step for lots of extra flavor, offering ways to make your cooker a complementary appliance, explaining seasoning to maximum effect. Bring an element of simplicity - and quality - to your pressured life! Let the slow cooker do the work for you!
