The crock pot method of cooking comes from the Jewish tradition of not cooking or preparing meals on the Sabbath. Since housewives could not cook on that day, and even the ovens had to be turned off for the Sabbath, housewives would place their meals for the Sabbath on the cooling hearth during the night in order to allow the food to cook as the ovens cooled. The results were fantastic. An enterprising entrepreneur observed this phenomenon and designed the original crock pot from seeing what the housewives did and how they cooked their food for this special day each week. Since the first development of the crock pot, this little piece of kitchen equipment has become more and more popular.
Today, you can find crock pots just about everywhere you go. And they are inexpensive to buy, too. In fact, you can even buy a used crock pot and get great results from that. So do not spend much money on investing in this great little piece of kitchen equipment. You simply do not need to do that in order to get terrific results in your kitchen. This is a great first recipe to work with a crock pot if you have not used one before. If you have, let the kids make this recipe, and learn how to use this kitchen gear.
