Slow cooking is a way to enjoy great-tasting meals with minimum amount of effort. This budget-friendly cooking method takes tougher cuts of meat and turns them into hearty, flavoursome meals. Although they usually have long cooking times, slow-cooked dishes require relatively short preparation times – after that you can leave them to simmer away. The moist cooking method also ensures tender, juicy results every time. Plus, cooking meat, vegetables and sauce together in one pot cuts down on washing up.
There are many ways to slow cook food – simmer it in a stockpot, bake it in a casserole in your oven, or use a specially designed device, such as an electric slow cooker or pressure cooker.
