Converting your recipe
I know some of you don’t own slow cookers.
I also know that some times you don’t have time to wait for a slow cooker to cook your meal, but you like the recipe.
Or, you have a recipe you like, but you want to use your slow cooker, This happens to me all the time.
Here’s a way to convert your recipe, so….
no matter how you want to cook it….you can cook it.
Do you know how to convert it? No?
Well, now you’re going to know how to do it.
Slow cookers cook on a low, constant, even heat.
If you have a recipe that calls for 1 hour-ish on the stove top that equals
- 6-8 hours in the slow cooker on low or
- 4 hours on high.
- You should also decrease the liquid by 1/2 cup.
Reverse that for converting from the slow cooker to the stove top. Since with the stove top you have the ability to use a higher heat, you can obviously cook things much faster.
- 1 hour on the stove top for every 4 hours in the slow cooker on high
- add 1/2 cup of liquid to the recipe.
Hope that helps you cook any recipe the way YOU want to cook it.
