Slow cooking, hmm. Sounds like an ideal excuse to eat mutton to me.

We made a pretty good stew called "Three Sisters" with corn beans and squash. Maybe later I'll find the recipe and post it if I'm not too lazy.

WTF can I make with the pressure cooker I decided I just HAD to have and have used once?
― quincie, Saturday, 20 October 2007 17:30 (fourteen years ago) link
It's getting to Christmas pudding time. Using a pressure cooker reduces cooking time from 8 or 9 hours to 2.5.

poule au pot, whole chicken goes in with leek, onion, fennel, bay, bouquet garni, cook three hours or so, bin the veg and add fresh, a few sliced waxy spuds as well, another half an hour to cook the veg and serve with vinaigrette mixed with egg yolk and diced egg white. You get beautfully tender chicken, veg, spuds and a beautiful broth. You also get a whole bunch of leftovers. Fan-fucking-tastic.

on the "what's cooking" thread, reminded me that i really wanted one of these, so now i have one and used it for the first time yesterday. adapted this recipe from the moro cookbook: it's like rabo de toro, but with shin of beef rather than oxtail, and a bit simpler.
2 onions, roughly chopped2 carrots, roughly chopped1 stick of celery, roughly chopped2 cloves garlic1.5 kg shin beef, off the bone, cut into 5cm chunks120g chorizo, cut into 1cm piecesflour2 bay leaves10 stalks flat-leaf parsley4 sprigs thyme4 cloves1/4 teaspoon ground fennel seeds2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika1/2 teaspoon of hot smoked paprikacouple of tablespoons of tomato puree1 bottle red winesalt and pepper
fry the onions, carrots, celery and garlic for a few minutes until they soften. lightly coat the beef in seasoned flour, then add to the pot and stir. then add the chorizo, cover with the red wine, and add the herbs, spices and tomato puree, season, and cook on "low" for six to eight hours.

duh, forgot - 1 tsp hot chilli powder, add at the same time as the coriander, cumin and turmeric.

I think I have found the silliest slow cooker recipe ever, and there's pretty stiff competetion. Mulled Dr Pepper:
* 8 cups Dr. Pepper * 1/4 cup packed brown sugar * 1/4 cup lemon juice * 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice * 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves * 1/4 teaspoon salt * 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg * 3 cinnamon sticks (3 inches)
* In a 3-qt. slow cooker, combine all ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours or until desired temperature is reached. * Discard cloves and cinnamon sticks before serving. Yield: 8-10 servings.

Hot, flat soda pop!
That sounds blergh. I did use the slow cooker for mulled wine at our holiday party, and it was great.
Mr. Jaq made a pot-au-feu yesterday by packing in 6 chicken thighs and a 2 lb pot roast with a quartered onion, garlic cloves, 2 turnips, 4 carrots, a bunch of crimini mushrooms, 2 big leeks, a bay leaf and two cloves, then as much water as possible. Cooked on low for 10 hours - smelled and tasted great, but looked unlovely at the end. The chicken meat is just mush when you do this, but the broth is amazing.

hullo cheese board i have a question:
what capacity of slow cooker do i need to cook a whole chicken in?
― mark s, Saturday, 1 September 2018 11:47 (three years ago) link
I don’t know the size required but I can strongly recommend any whole chicken recipes where the bird isn’t covered with liquid - I did one where it was supposed to slow roast in top of vegetables and it was so undercooked after 8 hours I had to throw it in the oven or risk poisoning. I just this minute finished doing this pulled pork recipe which is criminally easy and SO good. https://therecipecritic.com/slow-cooker-sweet-carolina-pulled-pork-sliders/

I’m guessing the chickens in the UK aren’t quite as enormous as the ones in the US but we would use a 6 or 7 quart one - so 6 liters I assume

I would never inflict a whole chicken recipe upon myself, though, they all seem like a pain in the tuchus
― Paleo Weltschmerz (El Tomboto), Saturday, 1 September 2018 12:58 (three years ago) link
whole chickens aren't hard to cook. we use a le creuset casserole of 6.3l capacity for it. guessing a slow cooker of the same capacity would work, but just a regular oven cook works great.

btw when this thread was revived it took my breath away briefly because I regularly haunt Crock Pot Ladies for culinary lols and in fact had spent some time doing so earlier this afternoon, so it felt like some cosmic serendipity.
― droit au butt (Euler), Saturday, 1 September 2018 14:19 (three years ago) link
roasting or poaching whole chickens is fine and i often do this but i wanted to make sure i got a large enough slow cooker that i could slow cook them also when i choose (i am going for a 6.5l)
anyway thx all and happy cosmic serendipity euler :)
― mark s, Saturday, 1 September 2018 14:23 (three years ago) link
ok nice! with your slow cooker you can try CROCK-POT JAPANESE CLEAR ONION SOUP which has as much to do with Japanese cooking as potato chips do to French cooking. I love this site.

OPINION: chicken stock made from normal-poaching a whole chicken is nicer than chicken stock made from slow-cooking just the bones of a roast chicken
next time i will slow-poach a whole chicken i think -- also maybe vary what goes in with the chicken
― mark s, Thursday, 6 September 2018 14:05 (three years ago) link
so a thing i find it IMPOSSIBLY HARD to do is not lift the lid and stir
I KNOW IT'S BAD AND TAKES TWICE AS LONG, i do it without thinking
― mark s, Monday, 12 November 2018 17:49 (three years ago) link
in conclusion probably don't slowcook the chicken overnight for a salmagundy, yes it saves labour (i.e. washing my largest poaching pot which i will also need for mulled wine later) BUUUUUUT it makes the chicken much too soft and tender and basically crumbly -- really for this salad it needs to be more firm and "cold-chickeny" i feel
(obviously i can "fast-cook" using the slow cooker and will try this next time)
― mark s, Monday, 17 December 2018 11:53 (three years ago) link
I lift lids and stir too often too. I only recently found out this is detrimental to rice. I really need to use my instant pot more often. I tried to make a coq au vin the first time out which was too much too soon.
I would be in love if I could figure out the perfect way to make a roast chicken in it.
― Yerac, Monday, 31 December 2018 19:18 (three years ago) link
Fwiw I find that Brunswick Stew or 50 Cloves of Garlic type recipes work well in the slow cooker for chicken, but generally find pork shoulder is more tolerant to the slow cooker.
Use it when you're not home and you won't stir it!

We got a multipot for the holidays (the ugly-named Mealthy one). I'm exclusively a cast-iron pot guy so I'm looking at this thing with suspicion.
