    Am I imagining this when I make slowcooker pot roast?

    So I put the broth, spices, veggies, and big hunk of chuck in the cooker, let 'er rip for 8 or so hours. I think I've noticed that even as late as like 7 hours into the cooking, the meat isn't really all that tender. It seems like most of the uberfallaparttender process really happens in like...

    After slowcooking ribs, how can you use the liquid?

    I've heard that if you cool it, allowing the fat to solidify on top, and taking it out, the liquid can then be reduced to make a sauce. Anyone tried this?

    Can I put 1/2 frozen chicken into crock pot?

    Hi all, I'm gonna slowcook me some chicken cacciatore, and don't feel like waiting for the chicken to finish thawing. Can I safely toss it (and all the other ingreds) in the cooker and let 'er rip for 7 hours? Or does it truly need to be fully thawed before going in the cooker? Thanks!

    What liquid to use for slow cooking ribs?

    zomg - the ribs were soooo good! I dumped in some tabasco with about 3 hours to go on em to add a little bit of zing - excellent choice! (or for the hoity toity: the spiciness of the chili sauce providided an excellent counterpoint to the sweetness of the marinade liquid) I took them out of...

    What’s your favourite dish with lamb?

    I haven't cooked it, but lamb kafta (or something like that) is my fav lamb dish. It's Indian - lamb meatballs in some sort of sauce. No idea how to make it or what's even really in it, but I love it!

    How do you learn to cook?

    heh. Starting from scratch (rimshot) can be a bit daunting. I'm not a "good cook" by any stretch of the imagination, but I like what I make, and so have the others who have eaten it. My basic approach: start with "mixture" types of things. Curries, casseroles, and so on. With things like that...

    What liquid to use for slow cooking ribs?

    Ok - should I just do the standard procedure when it's done: reduce the liquid to make a sauce, and maybe toss the ribs under the broiler for a few minutes to make em look crispy and pretty? I assume they'll look kinda gnarly after being in liquid for 24 straight hours.... (2nd time using...

    What liquid to use for slow cooking ribs?

    Hmm... Maybe I should take some of the liquid *out* then. I have lots - had to make lots in order to cover them marinating. They're pretty much covered with liquid in the crockpot now.

    What liquid to use for slow cooking ribs?

    Heh - I was afraid somebody was gonna ask me that. I recall that it involved a lot of soy sauce, lemons, orange juice (ran out of lemons) and garlic. EDIT: Oh, and a fair bit of water too. And there was sugar involved. It would have had ginger, had I been able to get my hands on any. :( Just...

    Can You OVER Season New Cast Iron?

    I believe that black stuff = carbon = burnt crud = item wasn't properly cleaned before seasoning. Or maybe you just burnt the pancakes? :ohmy:

    Hi all, Have had the (beef) ribs marinating all night, time to plop them in the slowcooker. It just occurred to me that I have no idea what liquid to cook em in. Ideas?
