In the crock pot
Don’t you just love the aroma of all day cooking in the house when you get home from a long cold day – it’s so comforting. The best way to cook your Dream Dinners Slow cooked BBQ Beef is in the crock pot and the Baby Bakers in your oven (*see note below for a new potato idea!)
Here are a few tips:
- First, in the crock pot, remember that one hour on High is equal to 1 1/2 to 2 hrs. of cooking time on Low.
- Always cook with the lid on and don’t lift the lid for the first 2 hours of cooking.
- When cooking frozen meats for dinner, add 1 cup of room temp or warm liquid to thaw food evenly before it begins to cook. I like using stock, beer, red or white wine depending on what the dinner is.
- Always fill the crock 1/2 to 3/4 full.
- Allow your crock pot to cool to room temperature before cleaning the crock or the lid. Water on a hot surface can cause it to break.
- You will know when the meat is done if it pulls apart with 2 forks. We like it shredded, but you can slice it too.
- Crock Pot Temperatures: You should check your crock pot during cooking to verify the cooking temperatures. Low setting should cook foods in 4 hours to 160 – 180 degrees. High should cook the food to 160 – 200 in 3 hours. Not all crock pots cook at those even temperatures and knowing your crock pot temp will help you adjust your cooking times and settings.
Alternative Cooking Suggestion for Baby Bakers
Roast the Baby Bakers in your 400 degree oven, on a baking sheet for 30 min. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and with the flat side of a measuring cup, press the potatoes to flatten to between 3/4 to 1/2 an inch. Drizzle the smashed bakers with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt. Place back in the oven for 20 – 25 min, until crisp! Yum!
Alternative Serving Suggestions
Left overs make a wonderful sandwich. Try slicing the meat and put on a Ciabatta roll with a creamy horseradish sauce. Or shred it to create carne asada tacos and add an easy Pico de Gallo salsa wrapped inside a flour tortilla.
