How to convert stove-top braise to slow cooker?
 
I have some recipes for braising in a dutch oven on the stove top and I'd like to try it in my slow cooker. Is there a good rule of thumb for converting? Would a 2 hour low simmer on the stove equal 2 hours on low heat in the slow cooker?

I have more than one slow cooker and they all work differently. The "low" on one is almost a slow simmer and on the other it's no where near a simmer. So I think I would have to say it depends on your slow cooker. If it's something you usually brown first before you start the braise, I would do that and then let the slow cooker do it's work checking periodically until you know the workings of your particular slow cooker.

If you have the recipe booklet for your slow cooker, see if you can find a recipe similar to the stove top one you want to adapt and use the directions for that.
