Last night we had Osso Bucco, just fall off the bone, melt in the mouth, delicious, warm and nourishing for a cold night. I cooked it slowly on the stove top in a large, deep frying pan with a glass lid for 90 minutes.
However, I'm thinking about buying a Slow Cooker; something to set and forget, instead of checking every 10 minutes on a pan simmering on the stove. Years ago we called the slow cooker a 'crock-pot' and I remember the girls in the office saying that they'd put a meal on ready to return to that evening. I didn't get a crock-pot as I would never leave the house and leave something electrical like that on.
I have a pressure cooker and still use it occasionally but it is decades old and I like the idea of the slow cooker rather than a new pressure cooker, to use maybe two or three times a week and give me more time for other things. Do you have a slow cooker and are you happy with it?
