Slow cooker (crockpot) ideas
I am not a big meat eater but on a warm day this cooking vessel does not heat up the kitchen.
My biggest success thus far is a potato leek stew that was garnished with walnuts toasted in butter.
Despite living in Germany I am not a big potato eater either but when slow cooked I like them.

It's still too warm right now for it, but a crockpot is ideal for making a cassoulet, which is a wonderful meal when the weather is chilly. I also like to use a crockpot to cook a pork tenderloin, which can then be turned into pulled pork barbeque.

Cassoulet I have not yet mastered. And it seems very rich and heavy for summer but I have had it in Paris and in the South of France and baked beans never tasted so good.

Indian dishes. The flavors are enhanced by the long cooking time.

Are there any in particular you care to share R3?

Lamb shanks? They are the entire reason I purchased a slow cooker.

Try making a chilli with beef skirt. So good, I will never make it again with mince beef.

I just bought one and am looking for non-meat recipes! I haven’t received it yet, though. Back ordered at Wayfair.

I need to start using mine again now that it's getting too hot to heat up the kitchen by using stove top or oven.
Love to see some recipies as well.

Check out: The Indian Slowcooker by Anupa Singla.
For general slow cooker recipes (i.e. most aren't Indian) check out the cookbooks and website of Kathy Hester.

For those who requested non-meat Kathy Hester is vegan. Anupa Singla has both meat and vegan in her book.

Pork shoulder, pork butt, Boston butt, all the same cut makes great pulled pork for sandwiches.

I love that R11 popped on after the no meat discussion. THAT is Datalounge.

Wouldn't potatoes pretty much disintegrate in a slow cooker?

I've made two pots of slit pea soup flavored with ham hock this summer, heavy on the pepper and added some cloves and nutmeg .
also have bread attachment and have made Boston brown bread (steamed) and rich batter white bread with ginger powder.

Chicken and Rice. Use bone-in, skin-on chicken breasts and add peppers and onions.

Someone above asked about potatoes. You can make delicious roasted potatoes in a crockpot. (One good recipe linked below). You can vary that same recipe by adding carrots, parsnips, onions to your potatoes to get an entire roasted root vegetable medley. Much easier than roasting in the oven, and no danger of charring the roast vegetables. One hint is to make sure that all the cut surfaces of the potatoes contact the ceramic of the crockpot. This will help caramelize them for even more flavor.

Chicken breasts are flavorless. Use thighs.

I made Pasta Fagioli on the stove top today, but I could have easily made it in a crock pot as well.

I made chile verde (a pork stew) in a Dutch oven and finished it in the oven. It's in there for 2.5 hours before you even add the potaotes so they don't disintegrate.

For a vegetarian recipe, try making hummus from scratch. You can experiment with variations for a slightly more original dish: I like substituting Great Northern beans for some of the garbanzo beans. Hummus is fantastic with Meyer lemon juice.

Hummus is great, I make a lot of it.

Does anyone know how to make a traditional British Sunday Roast in an instant pot? I want it to look like the roast in the picture I have attached. Also, please let me know what cut of meat I should use since there are so many.

Last night I made this garlic soup in the slow cooker.
I may reek today but man alive it was delicious.

[R31] Can't wait to make the garlic soup. (With yams/sweet potatoes instead of potatoes - due to picky partner.)

r1 No one would use pork tenderloin to make pulled pork (or use it in a slow cooker.) Pulled pork is made with pork shoulder (see r11.) You could probably use pork LOIN, but not the tenderloin.
|by Anonymous||reply 33||08/03/2020|
You need a fatty cut of pork to make pulled pork in a slow cooker. R11 listed them. Pork loin/tenderloin is not suitable.

How about brisket, does it hold up well. It has fat.
