Another word(s) is “slow cooker”. If you don’t have one of these, I highly suggest you get one. I honestly do not like to put roasts in the oven and have to baste or whatever you do. Just too lazy for this. However, everything you put even a low-grade cut of meat in the crockpot with some seasonings on low, and 8 hrs later, it turns out to be the most tender meat ever, like you were some fantastic chef.
The truth is, you could be so as bad of a cook to burn water to really mess things up in a crockpot. Yes, I’ve known at least 1 person who left stuff in the crockpot for 2 days with no water. I’m not talking about that and about not paying attention at all.
I always feel when I use my crockpot for meat, the most delicious flavors come out, even if just seasoning with salt & pepper. My gosh, this makes me feel so rich and delicious, like I just bought a high-class meal from a 5-Star Chef at an elegant restaurant.
Oh, serving whatever teh meat on a bed of cauli-rice or a bed of greens on a plain white dish/bowl, and maybe drizzling some “sauce” around it makes it look so beautiful and gorgeous. Yet, the roast or whole fryer chicken or meat might have only cost you $8 and will last you through 4-6 meals.
How much would that cost at a 5-Star Restaurant? Probably $30-40 a person, plus tip. So, this meal you would pay about $225-250 (tip, tax) for 5 people total it basically cost you under $15 for the food.
That’s living frugally, but richly and deliciously. Okay, maybe your environment won’t be AS nice, and no one is serving you, and you have to do the dishes. Maybe that’s worth the extra $200? 14 months ago
