These recipes are cooked in an electric slow cooker, and include soups, stews, casseroles, curries, pot roasts and even a few desserts. All the dishes benefit from long, slow cooking and, because of that, most of them use inexpensive ingredients - cheaper cuts of meat, for example, are delicious when cooked at a low temperature for a long time; they emerge succulent and so tender they can be cut with a fork. Most come with suggestions for accompaniments, but there are also recipes for couscous, roasted potatoes, polenta, pilaf, mash and more, to help you out.
