Crock Pot Tips
Fill your slow cooker at least 1/2 full for the best slow cooking results.
Tender vegetables such as fresh mushrooms, tomatoes or zucchini will only need to be added for the last 45 minutes of cooking time, otherwise you could over cook them.
To assure even cooking of meat, be sure there is some space between the pieces to allow for circulation of heat and seasonings.
Some vegetables, especially onions and carrots, often take longer to cook than meat. Always place them at the bottom of the slow cooker.
