The slow cooker is quickly becoming part of your family meal planner. With the rushed lifestyle many of us lead the chance to have the cooking done without you standing over the hot stove will definitely make your life and the ones around you much less stressful. The slow cooker is great when you have meats that need plenty of time to soften them up.
Slow cookers are great at taking tough cuts of meat and slowly breaking them down to soft and delicious offerings. That might not always be the case but with slow cookers you have the choice to buy those types of meat cuts but you are not always confined to them since many sausages are also cooked well when cooked over long periods of slow cooking time. You have some flexibility with slow cooking but like most recipes you make having any food or veggie cook too long can spoil the flavor and most importantly the texture of the final product. Whenever deciding on the vessel you are going to use to cook your meal in never bypass the slow cooker since it allows for ease of cooking and also will not have you washing many different things since it does everything in one place. The convenience afforded to you and the wonderful way all
the flavors can slowly intermingle make this style of cooking a truly beautiful thing.
Jackie suggests that you quick fry or brown the sausage slices first to lock in the flavor which is a great idea when trying to keep the meat tasty and the bits in the bottom of the pan make a wonderful addition to the slow cooker meal. Deglazing the pan with a little wine or broth never hurts and the taste they add are fabulous. As with most recipes feel free to substitute the meat for veggies only or with any other type of sausage or meat you like just remember the recipe is your guide and not your ruler.
