The Sear and Stew Slow Cooker allows you to sear the meat in the same pan.
Slow cooking isn’t necessarily new – for generations a pot of food in the fireplace was a symbol of homeliness, partly responsible for many of Britain’s iconic soups and stews like hot pot. But as the open fires disappeared, so did the tradition, and along with it many of the wonderful tastes and aromas that come with them. Well thanks to the modern slow cooker, they’re back. Slow cooking is simplicity itself. Some dishes, like rice dishes, casseroles, vegetable soups and stews, require hardly any prep beyond a bit of peeling. Simply put them in the slow cooker with water and whatever stock you want, and a few hours later it’s done to perfection. Because slow cookers never get too hot, nothing will be burned, just softened and cooked beautifully. For the meat lover, the slow cooker is the opportunity to cook on the bone, so the delicious flavours and most tender meat imaginable are waiting for you. Most slow cookers come with a timer so you can set them to start while you’re at work and have a wonderful hot meal waiting for you when you get home.
