Time and the perfect amount of heat: the slow cooker makes a
juicy, delicious meal that frees up your day. Put a cut of
Chairman’s Reserve® Certified Premium Beef in the slow cooker
and come home to greatness.
Always check the manufacturer’s directions for
specific cooking information. Cooking times are guidelines; each
slow cooker varies, and power fluctuations may occur. Follow
recipes to determine whether to cook on low or high setting.
Place chopped vegetables (potatoes, carrots, onions, celery) on the bottom and sides of a 4-½ to 5-½-quart slow cooker. Vegetables tend to cook more slowly than meat in the slow cooker, so they need to be closer to the heat source.
You can add beef that is cut into 1-inch pieces or you can drop in a whole roast.
Place any additional ingredients, liquid and seasonings on top.
Make sure the ingredients fill the slow cooker at least half-full so the foods cook properly and the liquid does not cook away.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 5 to 6 hours or on LOW for 8 to 9 hours, or until beef is fork-tender.
Do not remove the slow cooker lid during cooking unless the recipe directs you to add ingredients or stir because the heat loss caused by removing the lid unnecessarily can result in extra cooking time.
In a pinch
If you don’t have a slow cooker, you can use a Dutch oven for the same results. There are tons of great guides out there, so find your recipe, heat up the oven, and go slow!
