Slow cooking is one of the easiest, most economical ways to cook—and you don’t need to be feeding a crowd to take advantage of a good slow cooker recipe. Lots of slow cooker recipes utilize leaner cuts of meat, which become more tender as they cook all day (these cuts are frequently less expensive, too). And, slow cooked dishes make for fabulous leftovers for lunch the next day.
The Crock-Pot name is practically synonymous with slow cooking, and frankly, cooking doesn’t get much easier than when done in a slow cooker. However, if following a slow cooker recipe is too much to deal with, or you just don’t have the time, the folks at Crock-Pot have introduced a new line of Seasoning Mixes to make it even easier to slow cook one of your favorite meals.
We received samples of the three varieties of new Crock-Pot Seasoning Mixes that are currently available (more flavors are in the works). We tried them—in fact my daughter made dinner that night all by herself (ok, the slow cooker did most all of the work). It was super easy and, when paired with a salad, an entree of lean protein cooked with a Crock-Pot Seasoning Mix in either Savory Pot Roast or Hearty Beef Stew makes a nicely-rounded meal. The recipe directions are right on the package, though we strayed a bit and went heavier on the vegetables for our taste tests. There is also a BBQ Pulled Pork variety that would result in a nice, game-day sandwich-bun stuffing. If you want to go more creative, check out the recipes on their website—they use the seasoning mixes in “augmented” recipes, so you can mix it up a bit.
