A very special expanded edition of a classic — readers will enjoy the standards and new classics.
The first edition of The 150 Best Slow Cooker Recipes has 425,000 copies in print and has been an outstanding success. It’s hard to believe, but this fall marks the 10th anniversary of its first printing. A lot has changed since then, from our tastes and interests in food and ingredients, including healthier fare, to the availability of a much wider range of slow cookers. So we decided to revisit this bestseller. The result is an expanded, updated sensational slow cooker book that reflects the needs of today’s home cook.
This updated and revised edition features original favorites plus 75 new recipes that have been carefully sourced and selected by the author from some of her previous bestsellers. It means more fish, seafood and vegetarian favorites as well as whole-grain offerings. And in a nod to the slow cooker’s humble beginnings, we’ve added more than a dozen sumptuous and tantalizing chili recipes, since nothing compares to chili prepared in slow cooker. Every section and every chapter has been revisited, updated and expanded.
Here’s a sample of some of the superb new recipes:
- Caribbean fish stew, coconut shrimp curry
- Mushroom and artichoke lasagna, Louisiana ratatouille
- Sausage-spiked peas and rice, beer-braised chili
- Short ribs with orange gremolata, lamb shanks braised in Guinness
- Chocolate bread-and-butter pudding, cranberry pear brown Betty.
I love my slow cooker. I use it constantly in the winter, and occasionally in the summer as well. I love that I can put something in the crock pot in the morning, and supper is taken care of so I don’t have to worry about it for the rest of the day. I really like how tender and delicious food is when it comes out of the slow cooker, and I was so happy to find this book because I needed to learn some new slow cooker recipes.
Here are some of the recipes that I find interesting:
- Hot Roasted Nuts
- Old Fashioned Pork and Beans
- Southwestern Brisket
- Chinese Style Braised Pork
- Peach-Blueberry Cobbler
I am amazed at the number of recipes, and the instructions are easy to follow too.
