Martha Stewart's Slow Cooker
110 Recipes for Flavorful, Foolproof Dishes (including Desserts!), Plus Test-kitchen Tips and StrategiesBook - 2017
Use your slow cooker in a whole new way. Leave it to the experts at Martha Stewart to figure out the best ways to use this favorite kitchen appliance. Many of this book's recipes play to the machine's celebrated strengths; the low-and-slow (and largely hands-off!) cooking method results in hearty, flavorful soups, stews, and chilis (think Split Pea with Ham Soup; Chicken Curry; Pasta e Fagioli). It makes the most of a few cuts of meat that need ample time to shine, as in the meltingly tender Italian Braised Pork served over a bed of creamy polenta, and a four-ingredient Brisket and Onions that just might put your grandmother's recipe to shame. Supplement any of these main courses with a few simple finishes (chopped fresh herbs and crunchy vegetables) and serving partners (warm corn tortillas or a crusty baguette) and you have a deeply satisyfing meal filled with flavor and texture. But the show cooker also boasts a wealth of hidden talents that help produce dishes well beyond those familiar family comforts. Salmon fillet, for example, poaches perfectly in about an hour; served with a bright salsa verde, this elegant springtime dish will make you rethink your dinner options. Restaurant-inspired dishes abound as well, like Duck Carnitas Tacos, which are as foolproof and tasty as they are on trend. Other recipes illustrate how easy it is to put the cooker to glorious good use for breakfast (Grits with Greens and Fried Eggs; Apple French Toast), holiday-worthy side dishes (Winter Squash with Shallots and Dates; Braised Red Cabbage; Scalloped Potatoes), and even desserts (Chocolate Marbled Cheesecake; Blueberry Cornmeal Buckle). With clever ideas for making the most of the machine's capabilities while at the same time uncovering its hidden potential, this book has everything you need to maximize flavor and make life a whole lot easier. What could be smarter than that? -- from book flap.
