Description

Product Description

Cook it slow, cook it smart

Leave it to the experts at Martha Stewart to figure out the best ways to use this favorite appliance. The 110 recipes in this book make the most of the slow cooker’s assets (low heat, hands-off cooking), while also uncovering its hidden potential. Readers will find that they can not only braise cuts of meat until meltingly tender and let soups and stews simmer away untended, but also gently poach fish, cook up creamy scalloped potatoes, and bake a perfect cheesecake. This book has everything home cooks need to maximize flavor and make life a whole lot easier.

About the Author

Barley Risotto with Fresh Mushrooms
SERVES 8

You can find recipes for slow-cooker risotto made with traditional Arboriorice, but we prefer the texture of barley here. It holds up beautifully and doesn’t get gummy. Earthy mushrooms flavor the dish the whole way through, while two cheeses and fresh chives round things out at the end.
7 cups vegetable broth, store-bought or homemade, or water.

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
12 ounces fresh mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake, or oyster, trimmed and sliced
2 shallots, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
2 cups pearl barley
2 ounces fresh goat cheese (about ½ cup), crumbled
½ cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (2 ounces), plus more, shaved, for serving
Snipped fresh chives, for garnish

Preheat a 5-to 6-quart slow cooker. Heat 6 cups broth in a saucepan over low.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil and 1 table­spoon butter in a large skillet over medium. Add half the mushrooms and sauté until tender, about 4 minutes; transfer to a bowl. Add remaining tablespoon oil and tablespoon butter, and sauté remaining mushrooms until tender, 4 minutes. Return reserved mushrooms to pan. Add shal­lots, garlic, 2 teaspoons salt, ¼ teaspoon pepper, and thyme; sauté for 2 minutes. Add barley, stir­ring to coat well. Increase heat to medium-high, add remaining cup broth, and cook, stirring to combine, until completely absorbed, about 4 minutes.

Transfer barley mixture to the slow cooker. Pour in broth and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high until barley is tender but still firm, 2 to 3 hours (or on low for 5 to 6 hours).
Before serving, stir in both cheeses with a fork until melted. Season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with shaved cheese and chives.

I saw this cookbook in a TJ Maxx, went home and bought two copies through Amazon (one for me; one for my daughter who is a fan of slow cookers). MANY of the recipes looked interesting, and they ARE. Before I ordered, I read a few negative reviews and noted the complaints about steps outside the slow cooker. Now that I own the cookbook, I see what those reviewers meant. I am retired, so for me these extra steps don''t matter IF I want to bother and IF I am willing to wash extra pots, pans and utensils. HOWEVER, these recipes decimate the entire concept of a slow cooker, which device is ideal for working people. You THROW ALL INGREDIENTS into the slow cooker, cover it, turn it on and go to work. Come home from work and dinner awaits! Martha Stewart''s cookbook has you spending at least a half hour sauteing or otherwise preparing ingredients BEFORE they go into the slow cooker. I don''t know about other people, but when I was working I DID NOT have time for all that (nor did I have the inclination to do so early in the morning).

Bottom line = interesting and tasty recipes but requiring all sorts of kitchen gymnastics BEFORE the slow cooker, IF you want to make them correctly.

I love her approach to slow cooking. She and her team have really worked out the science of it to make delicious, real food in the slow cooker. No canned soups, which helps for those who can''t eat them. Techniques that bring out the best in the finished dishes. Like adding boiling water/liquids at the start to get things up to temperature and cooking faster and more evenly. Looking forward to making several dishes, including steel cut oats.

Seller described the book perfectly. Just one minor red mark on the bottom of the book, otherwise it is perfect. As for the content of the book, all I can say is God bless Queen Martha and her team. Most of the ingredients used are household staples and not overly expensive. I love that the team tested all recipes and gives advice about the most favorable outcomes. I already made the Carbonnade, and I used a tri-tip roast. Came out beautifully. We served some salt potatoes and green beans on the side and have enough for 3 dinners.

Several reviewers didn''t like how there were several steps in the recipes. I guess they wanted the kind of recipe where you just throw everything in the slow cooker and leave it. However, having used a crock pot for years, I''ve learned that (for example) pre-browning beef is necessary for good flavor and texture. The recipes do require a slow cooker that has at least two temperatures. Lots of good recipes and ways to use a crock pot that maybe you hadn''t considered.

The best thing about this cookbook, next to the recipes, is the mouth watering pictures of the finished dishes. It made me want to try all of them.

The recipes are good and generally easy to make. However, there are often several steps that are done before or after using the slow cooker. This has the advantage of increasing the flavor of most dishes, but also adds preparation time. It’s a trade-off.

The book features useful information such as the Slow Cooker Commandments and The Basics, which are information included at the beginning of each chapter. The book contains recipes for meat, seafood, poultry, side dishes, stocks and sauces, breakfast and sweets. I found the content heavy on meat dishes. We don’t eat much meat. I would have preferred more meatless dishes. However, Spaghetti Boulognese is excellent.

The chapter on sauces and stocks is very helpful. The slow cooker is an excellent device for preparing stocks. The chapter on fish was also useful. We eat a great deal of salmon. It’s easy to overcook it. However, poaching in slow cooker makes it come out perfect.

I hadn’t really tried baking in a slow cooker, but the Blueberry Cornmeal Buckle turned out very well as did the Apple-Cranberry Crisp.

If you enjoy slow cooker cooking, this is a very helpful book.

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.

There were a lot of different slow cooker recipes, but they are not the kind of meals where you and throw everything into the slow cooker and leave it. All of these recipes involve a decent amount of prep before and during, and the ingredients are not common household ingredients. I gifted it to someone who was much more into cooking than I was.

I''ve tried two of the recipes so far - chicken curry and cinnamon rolls. The chicken curry was bland, but tender. The cinnamon rolls were disappointing. What I do like about the book is that it gives you some good techniques for using a slow cooker, such as cooking for only an hour or two, to avoid that grey bland overcooked stuff we''ve all experience. I''m willing to keep trying the recipes, some of them look interesting.

Beef and Black Bean Chili

True Texas chili is widely recognized as a bowl of beef chuck -that has been seasoned with dried chiles, tomatoes, and spices and simmered until it’s meltingly tender. Beans, if included at all, are most often pintos. This recipe swaps in black beans for variety and chili powder (a mix of ground chiles and spices such as oregano and cumin) for convenience.

Recipe | Serves 4

Place beans in a bowl; cover with water by several inches. Refrigerate, covered, overnight; drain. (To quick soak, cover beans in a large saucepan with water. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Let stand, covered, for 1 hour; drain.)

Preheat a 5 to 6 quart slow cooker.

Add beans. Add beef, tomato puree, onion (reserve 1 tablespoon for garnish), garlic, chili powder, the hot water, 2 teaspoons salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper and stir to combine. Cover and cook on high until chili has thickened and beans are tender, 6 hours (or on low for 8 hours).

Serve with sour cream, reserved onion, jalapeño, avocado, and cheese.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried black beans, picked over and rinsed
  • 1 pound beef chuck, cut into -¾--inch chunks
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato puree
  • 1 red onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 cups hot water
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Sour cream, diced jalapeño, chopped avocado, and grated cheddar cheese or crumbled queso fresco, for serving
