Crock Pot Tips
Jump start your meal in the microwave or brown your meat and cut your cooking time almost in half. Also, if you start your food on high for 1-2 hours then switch it to low this also cuts your time down. This is a great tip if you think , “I would like something in the Crock Pot for dinner but it is noon.”
For easy clean up spray the Crock Pot with cooking spray.
