Tasty Slow Cooker Recipes
How would you like to come home after a long day at the office or after spending all afternoon driving the kids all over town to the delicious smell of a home-cooked meal, hot and ready to serve? That's exactly what you can expect with slow cooker meals. Ready to give it a try?
Here's one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. It was submitted by one of the readers of my newsletter, Barb in Vermont. Not a month goes by where we don't have this at least once.
6-8 potatoes, peeled and cut in half
2 medium onions, cut in quarters
Carrots (I use the baby carrots)
1 packet of French onion soup mix
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
Salt and pepper the roast and put it in the frying pan just to brown all the sides. Put the roast, potatoes and onions in the slow cooker. Mix the French onion soup mix, mushroom soup, and about 1/2 cup of water together. Pour it over the mixture. Cook on high for about four to five hours or on low for about six to eight hours. Add the carrots usually the last hour, so they don't become mushy.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when using a slow cooker:
