Slow cooking or has had a resurgence of interest in today's busy world - and it's hardly surprising ! Particularly if you are into healthy eating or quick and easy cooking, then the slow cooker is the one for you!
Slow cooking methods mean cheaper meals, tastier food, and more time with the family - and that's just for starters! For casseroles that are bursting with flavour or beef stews that melt in your mouth, you just cannot beat a slow cooker.
Cheaper because - You can use cheaper cuts of meat when using a slow cooker, as this method breaks down even the toughest cuts of shoulder or shank.
Tastier because - the food is left to marinate in its own juices as it slowly breaks down in the Slow Cooker, releasing all the great flavours and infusing them with the seasoning and herbs.
More family time because - It takes on average 20-25 minutes to prepare a beef casserole for instance, and place it into the slow cooker. This can then be left to its own devices, and the next time to approach it is to serve it up to the family - after you all get back from the shopping trip !
