How To Convert Normal Recipes To Crock Pot Recipes.
From normal to crock pot recipe is not nearly as much bother, as most people seem to think.
Step 1 is not to panic. A lot of people get worried about the whole thing.
You really can't go wrong. In all the years we have been cooking with the Crock Pot we have only had two stuff ups and they had nothing to do with the recipe.
Basically, just chuck everything in the pot. No need to fry or brown first unless you really need to have the meat brown. (we never bother).
But, How much do I reduce the liquid by?(Relax it's easy)
It all depends on the recipe. Dont you hate answers like that. Generally, you will need to half the amount of liquid you add.
It does not really matter. If when it is within an hour of being done and there is too much liquid, just remove the lid and let is boil off.
The other solution is to mix a tablespoon of cornflour (or plain flour) in a cup with just enough water to make it into a paste. Stir this into the Crock Pot and allow to boil.
Easy Really. And not such a drama as some experts try to make out.
