With ais an almost foolproof way to cook. Almost. There are probably some things you can do to make your even better. Here are five things you can do wrong and how to fix them.
first You use too much liquid
Okay, I'll admit I used to fill up my long stove with liquid every time I made something. It's wrong.
When you cook meat or poultry, make sure the liquid covers the ingredients. There is no need to add more fluid than that, unless the instruction manual indicates that the device needs to be filled to a certain level to work properly. Also, if you use a long cooked recipe, follow it and use only the specified amount of liquid.
2nd You add dairy products when
Dairy products can curdle if you put them in your slow boiler too early. Always wait for the last minutes of the cooking process to add cheese, milk or sour cream.
3rd You look at
Just as you open the oven door, you can lift the lid of your slow cooker dramatically lower the temperature of the appliance. The more you look, the longer it takes food to cook.
4th You fill it in the board
No, you can't fill a slow cooker all the way to the top. You need space between the food and the rim to prevent it from boiling over. In addition, the heat inside the slow cooker needs space to circulate to cook the food properly. A good rule of thumb is to never fill the pot over three quarters full.
5th You are not waiting to add herbs
Wait until you add herbs until the end of cooking time. If you add them to the beginning, they will lose their power throughout the cooking process and you just have to add more to kick up the flavor.
