Well, I have to say I made this dish in the crock pot that is very similar to spaghetti, but you use chicken, green bean, onion, and mushrooms. I cooked the chicken in the skillet first. This is the best of the dish I have every made. Not to much liquid and excellent flavor. I was excited.

I have a bunch of crock pots and the West Bends ones can be put on the stove. I like my stainless West Bend Versatility one.

no need to cut it up, or precook, the juice from the meat is the flavor, if you put it in the icebox over night after it has finished cooking,the fat will rise to the top and then you can scrape it off, but it will still have the flavor, season the meat on all sides, spray the inside of the crock pot with olive oil, add 1/4 cup water, then frozen vegtables, then a pack of dry onion soup, if i have left overs, i'm lucky, i don't have to cook the next night

Oooo, what kind of crock pot can you put on a range? That sounds so convenient!

I cube and seer the beef before putting it in a stew. Sometimes I boil chicken before putting it in things as well.

If you don't know, you can substitute water for no salt broth also! It doesn't tend to toughen meat either.

I cut mine into pieces and brown it. I have the type of crockpot that can be put on the range.

Should I cook the meat just a little before putting it in the slow cooker to cut down on the juices from the meat?

yep, it's as simple as that. You need much less liquid than you would normally use in typical recipes.

Hello everyone,
I am hoping someone can help me with this problem. When I cook meats or poultry in the slow cooker, I find sometimes I have to much liquid and it really takes away from the flavors by making it to watery.

What are some good ways to ensure that I don't get to much liquid during the cooking process. Any help is greatly appreciated.
