Slow cooker

Slow cookers are still the ultimate kitchen appliance that cooks your stews, soups or even cook ribs for you while you get to do other things.

How to use a slow cooker

  • With a slow cooker, you can create tasty meals without being tied to the stove.

  • Slow cookers generally have 3 settings (low, high and warm). For most pork cuts, plan for about 8 hours at the low setting or 4 hours at high.

  • To enhance the flavour, sear meat first in a hot skillet.

  • Remember to lightly coat the meat in flour before searing, which will create a thicker sauce.
