Basic Guidelines For Crock-pot Cooking

from:

Crock-pot cooking can offer some delicious meals and desserts for individuals to make. However some basic guidelines should be followed when using a crock-pot to cook with.

Individuals should be careful not to over stir their food in crock-pot cooking. Because taking the lid off causes large amounts of heat to be lost, individuals should only stir the food if it clearly indicates that in the recipe.

Some ingredients can only be added at the end of the cooking time. Milk and sour cream only need added in about the last fifteen minutes of cooking time. Seafood only needs about in the last hour of cooking unless the recipe states differently.

Pasta and rice cook differently in crock-pot cooking. For the best consistency of pasta, cook in boiling water until just tender, and then add to the dish during the last thirty minutes of cooking. Individuals should use long grain converted rice for best results. If the rice does not seem cooked completely through, individuals can add another cup to cup and a half of liquid per cup of rice. Beans should be boiled before being added to the crock-pot for cooking.

Individuals can use frozen foods when crock-pot cooking. If it is frozen meat individuals should use at least one cup of warm liquid with the meat. Also these meals need cooked for and additional four to six hours on low or two hours on high.

Cooking raw meat in the crock-pot is safe. The meatís internal temperature reaches one hundred seventy degrees in beef and one hundred ninety degrees in poultry. Two important things to remember is to cook the meat for its entire recommend time, and do not remove the lid on the slow cooker. Meat does not need to be browned beforehand unless the individual prefers the look and flavor of browned meat.

In crock-pot cooking, the best flavors come from whole herbs and spices. Crushed herbs and spices quickly lose their flavor during the extended cooking time, but whole spices retain their flavor during the entire cooking time because they take longer to release their flavor.

Individuals can use their crock-pot to make desserts and baked goods. Individuals should be sure not to over beat breads and cakes; they should follow the recommended recipe guidelines. Do not add water to the crock-pot





unless it specifically states to. Allow cakes and breads to sit and cool for five minutes before removing them from the pan.

Crock-pot cooking can be delicious for meals and desserts when some basic guidelines are followed.
