Where can I buy a new Crock Pot Cookbook?

Are you looking for the best crock pot cookbooks? There are several places online and then there are stores where you can buy the right one for you.  A crock pot cook book may have many things other then recipes that will help you with cooking and other matters that have to do with preparing and storing your crock pot meals.

Amazon Books have a variety of crock pot recipe books ranging from just a few dollars.   E-bay also has a range of crock pot cook books that are both new and used. You will nearly always find what you want on the internet.

Looking around, I found that the price of the cookbooks are pretty reasonable with most being between $10-20. It all depends on how big it is, how it is presented such as hard cover or digital version, where you go to buy it and the quality of the contents. There are also sites where you can create, publish and sell your own crock pot cookbook like Lulu.com so that's another good place to investigate if you like writing.

There is a parts and accessories auction here on Crock Pot Meals and if you don't see one you like then go to Amazon.com at last count there was over 188 crock pot cookbooks there.

Slow Cooker Lamb Stew

I love lamb stew and this recipe is just delicious made in the slow cooker.  Its a three step process but very easy and while it is cooking you have a lovely aroma through the kitchen and house.  I used the cheapest cuts of lamb I could get but just make them nice thick pieces.

Slow Cooker Lamb Stewcrock pot lamb stew

4 - 5 thick lamb chops
4 tbs butter
2 heaped tabs plain flour
1 heaped tab curry powder
2 tabs ketchup (tomato sauce)
1 tab plum jam
1 cup white wine
3/4 cup beef or vegetable stock
salt and pepper
Vegetables:
2 medium size carrots and onions each, sliced
1 medium size parsnip, sliced
2 medium size potatoes, peeled and sliced

Melt the butter in a frying pan and brown the chops then add half to the crock pot and half of the vegetables. Place the rest of the chops on top with the remaining vegetables.  Add the flour and the curry to the frying pan and brown for a few minutes.  Combine the wine, plum jam, ketchup and stock together and add to the frying pan stirring constantly until it comes to the boil and thickens to a nice gravy.  Season with salt and pepper and pour over the chops and vegetables in the slow cooker.  Cover and cook for 4 hours.

This slow cooker lamb stew serves 4.  I accompany the meal with rice.  This is a another great slow cooked meal to try.

Can I use a Cracked Crock Pot Lid?

crock-pot-lidI was recently asked by Anita from a comment on Crock Pot Replacement Parts post whether they could use their crock pot if it had a crack in the lid.  I thought the subject was too important to just answer quickly so I am doing it here now.

The quick answer is yes to the crock pot lid for the short term or as an emergency measure only.  If the crack doesn't go all the way across the lid then what you cold do until you receive a replacement one is to use foil to line the lid on the underside which will also give it a seal so no steam or heat can escape.  Also, if the lid does break you have protection for the food you have just cooked.

crock-pot-cookingCrock pot dinners have slowly gained popularity with a lot of families in the United States and across the world. Not only is it a great way to help a lot of families save money for meals, it also makes anyone's cooking experience fun and easy. The crock pot was first introduced as an electrical Dutch oven and it has come a long way since then.  Crock pot dinners cook in 4 - 8 hours and can stay heated for hours, depending on the model and cooking settings, without needing a lot of attention.

One of the advantages of the crock pot is that it is very efficient when it comes to the use of energy. You can guarantee that cooking for a crowd can be done cheaply and you wont heat your kitchen up either in summer.  All you need to do is to load it with all the raw ingredients of your crock pot dinner, set and forget. This allows you to save a lot of money and to eat healthier food than buying out.

If you also have other things to do within the day (of course you have) then you can simply leave the crock pot and let it cook on its own.  If you have a large family, you can cook a hearty meal for them without having to overstress yourself in the kitchen.  You can get all your washing or ironing done while it cooks (OK that's not a great example but a reality).  Many crock pots are large enough to cook for 6- 8 people and you stretch that number by serving extra vegetables or pasta so you can cook for a crowd of 10 if needed.

Because you are cooking in one pot this saves washing up and using lots of pans on your cooker. You can even get the kids to cook a meal knowing they cant burn themselves or the house down.  Crock pot dinners for a large family are just so easy on the cook and on the budget as well.  Happy cooking in your crock pot in the future.
