"I don't know how much water to add!" No one does, unless you're following a recipe. Just experiment.
"I don't want to overcook anything!" I promise you, for the majority of meats and soups... the longer it cooks, the better.
Today is a grim, damp day in Southeastern Wisconsin, and it's prime slow-cooker weather.
I picked up a pork roast at the store a few days ago, and now is the time to show my beloved sister-in-law just how easy it is to have a comfort meal waiting for you at dinner-time.
In goes the roast, about a cup of water and some powdered chicken broth.
I dumped a bunch of garlic pepper on top, and after discovering chopped green onions in the fridge from Monday's dinner, in went those as well.
Carrots and garlic, check.
I'll be seeing this pork again in about 7 hours from now. And when I say that I'll be seeing it, I mean my stomach will be seeing it. NOM NOM NOM!
