This Crockpot Recipe Guide includes the most delicious and healthy main dishes, side dishes, breakfasts, lunches, and even mouthwatering desert dishes. There are 100 recipes that you can put in your crockpot or slow cooker in the morning before work and come home and eat within minutes something delicious. Crockpot recipes are not only easy and quick, but they are extraordinarily tasty.
The secret behind the marvel of slow-cooked meals is the sustained low temperature and the sealed environment. Because the temperature is low and the cooking time is extended, even the toughest cuts of meat are effectively broken down to the point that they melt in your mouth. The closed cooking environment traps all the flavor and moisture, infusing tasty juices throughout the dish. When done correctly, everything you cook in a crockpot will be very good.
In this book you will find all kinds of recipes including those that you can start in the morning or overnight and eat in about 8 hours. There are also recipes that only take a few hours to cook in a crockpot. Make main dishes like meatloaf, pot roast or lamb chops. Cook a whole chicken or opt for some elegant cranberry glazed chicken or Chinese Cashew Chicken. Pork roast, pork chops and maple glazed ham are a breeze in a slow cooker. Whip up some seafood including crab legs, tuna noodle casserole and a Louisiana seafood gumbo in.
This recipe book also has a plethora of soups and stew recipes including chicken noodle, beef stew, French onion soup and Irish stew that will keep your family coming back for more. Pasta can be made in slow cookers and you will find Alfredo and tomato recipes including lasagna and ravioli. If you aren’t a meat eater, do not despair. There is a complete vegetarian section using beans, quinoa and couscous to make luscious main dishes that also serve as side dishes for those who do eat meat including Bolonaise of Cauliflower and Mushroom Stroganoff.
