I bought a slow cooker this week. Had been thinking about it for quite a while, and finally this post on TheKitchn (and a gift card credit at amazon.com) tipped the scale.
Washed the applicable bits this morning, and am ready to christen it today. What to start with? I am perusing Slow Cooker from Scratch and pondering some candidates:
- Easy Lentil Chili
- Sweet Potato and Red Lentil Curry
- Beef Stew, 20 ideas for it
- and I believe I must try my hand at the Beef au Chocolat
Stopping at Dittmer's to get some Landjäger for a split pea or lentil soup, and some stewing beef just as a matter of principle, seems like a smart venture.
