I don't put any extra liquid in it. I just let the natural juices be the liquid if I'm doing a roast in it. If I'm doing mac and cheese, the evaporated milk is the liquid.

What kind of crock pot do you have? I have a kitchen craft, and since it is part of the waterless/greaseless cookware I hardly EVER put water in it or I end up with a LOT of water. Could just be the type of crockpot you have, it might just be one that seals really well and keeps all the condensation inside. I would just use less water

Great suggestion. I never thought about that one. I have the perfect recipe to try it with. Acually I don't think I've posted it even though I've been making it for about 15 years.

Try putting a tea towel across the pot before putting the lid on. That will absorb some of the condensation.
Isn't it a shame that they add the water to our meat.

great minds think alike. I forgot to mention reserving some just in case though.

susan, I agree with the person who said to drain some of the liquid off after 4 or 5 hrs.keep the liquid until you are sure you won't need any of it.A lot of meat these day have been injected with water or what ever they say its to make the meat tender I think its charge us for water weight. Kay

It's a brand new crock.

Perhaps your crockpot has seen better day. Try borrowing one from a friend and see what the result are. That will at least rule out the crockpot.

I get the excess liquid even when I half what the recipe calls for. Any other recommendations?

Hi, I have a couple of ideas
- add some cornstarch mixed with water 2 - 3 tbls each at the end and cook on high. - put is less liquid (depends on the recipe it may change the taste. I can alway tell B4 I make it but thats probably just experience - drain some of the liquid about 1/2 to 1 hour before it's ready. The favour will remain the same, just less juice.

Hey everyone. LOVE using my slow cooker/crockpot, but every time I do I get excess liquid in my pot. I follow the directions to the letter and it still comes out that way. Kind of disappointing when you ae plannin on having barbecue, and it comes out a watery mess.
