Petey, would you please post your braciole recipe? I've only made one giant one for a special Italian meal.

I have to agree with you. I don't think the water can be sufficiently heated to reach the center of the inserted pot. Why not just make what a little more than the recipe calls for so you can fill your pot up half way and save the rest in your fridge for later in the week? If you haven't used the pot yet and feel it is too large for the amount of food you can eat yourself, you can return it and get the same brand in a 4 quart pot. Some manufacturer's make a 2 1/2 quart pot also.

Wow that looks good Lee. I'd have to dig up the recipe. It's my moms.

Off the top of my head i can tell you that i use boneless pork loin fillets flattened out with a meat mallet. The pork loin is much more tender than 'beef round' . Another option is chuck fillets....which arent always easy to come by but provide the best flavor. Inside of it would be bread crumbs, pianolas, parsley,crumbled up bacon, chopped garlic, salt, pepper, & one egg . I dont know the measurements off hand though.

I personally would just buy a smaller crock pot to suit your needs.
