Thats why I selected ribs as a "no mess up" starter meal. The sauce , under slow, will cook and congeal on the ribs, infusing them with a mokuness and flavor and "fall off te bone" texture.


One of The Girl's first slow cooker ventures was ribs and beans. The meat definitely did fall off the bone. I kept putting the ladle in and getting beans and bones. Where the hell's the meat ? ! ? ! ?

@msolga,
Taters and other root vegetables need to be started on high (say, while you're in the shower and dressing for work) and then turn it down to low, and let 'er rip. By the time you get home from work, the taters should be done. If not, turn it up to high again, and they'll cook soon enough.

I don't suppose it was a bit over the top, buying a six litre slow cooker for a one person household?

@msolga,
You might not want to make a full pot of soup or stew, unless it is really, really good, and you're prepared to eat it once a day for the next week.

Yes, I'll remember that, Setanta. And there's always the freezer, should I forget, I guess.

@msolga,
That would be a great idea. You could make some nice soups or stews on the weekend, when you are around to keep an eye on things, but otherwise just let it run on its own. Then you could freeze portions for later use.

So, they have freezers in Oz, now, huh? What's next . . . radios?

Yes, I hear they're on the way ... soon, we've been promised.

Yep, the freezer solution! Though I must always remember that I now have a humungous slow cooker & only a small freezer. Seems not quite right, somehow ....

What brand Ms Olga?
our current slow cooker ( a Breville) is a bit faster than our last one.

well it is.

Mumpads corned beef
Corned beef, carrots, fresh bay leaves (from just outside the back door) black peppercorns, sprinkle of sugar, splash of vinegar, one onion cut into quarters studded with cloves, several whole cloves of garlic, water to just cover.
cook on low 7-10 hrs depending on size.

@msolga,
Some fella just hollered at me that you might be able to google the name of your slow cooker - and find the manual online.

(I waited til a tiny slow cooker was part of the deal with the ginormous slow cooker - I have intentions)

@dadpad,
Just a cheapie, dadpad. A jumbo Kambrook at (a very good) sale price at KMart. (I had no idea I was going to buy one when I dropped in there, on my way home from a movie on Sunday arvo.) Actually, there was only one other one, another brand, left on the shelves. (Must've been some big sale!) I bought this one because it had more temperature options, "cool touch" handles, removable ceramic bowl & I liked the oval shape (good for roasts). How's that for free a bit of advertising? Wink Laughing

Hey, I'm definitely going to make Mumpad's corned beef before too long! Looks good! And very easy. That would be 7 - 10 hours on low?

@ehBeth,
Please thank "some fella" for suggesting that, ehBeth. Smile While I was online today I found the manufacturer's local phone number. Gave them a ring & they're sending me a copy of their manual, cookbook & the rest of the information that I should have.

That sounds like a good deal! So what are your intentions, ehBeth? I'm dead keen to know! Very Happy
