Since time is precious these days and taking the time to sear and braise, and put in an oven, and watch every hour is out of the question, slow cookers however have become a lifeline for us. As a chef, and a dad and husband, I’m responsible for feeding everyone. Using a slow cooker is one of the easiest ways to get a myriad of vegetables and nutrients into 1 pot while putting very little effort into it. My favorite part about using a slow cooker is that you lightly prep for it in the morning, toss in the food and then forget about it for 8 hours. There is no 5 o’clock scramble, I repeat there is no 5 o’clock scramble!!
