Slow Cooker Tips & Tricks
Let’s just have a little talk about our slow cookers here for a minute. . .
As most of you know I’m a graduate of the Culinary School and one of the classes that’s required is Sanitation and Safety. During this class we had an eye-opening chat about slow cookers and how they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- If not careful they can be the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and pathogens.
- Preheat your crock pot just like you preheat your oven so plug it in and turn it to the high setting to get it nice and hot from the start for cooking. After all there is only one little probe heating the whole slow cooker!
- Add everything into the crock pot as warmed up as it can be, to cut down on the getting-the-food-hot portion of cooking, this is where you need to be cautious and make sure it is all hot and up to cooking temperature in 2-3 hours.
- If food stays between 41 degrees and 135 degrees for 4 hours, then it has to be thrown out because the bacteria and pathogens have had much too much time to grow and a food borne illness is a likely result.
- If you add meat; be sure it is thawed and NEVER added frozen, if it’s beef or pork brown it first.
- Add liquids hot ie: like use HOT water or warm up any liquids in the microwave first then add them in already hot.
- Spray the ceramic insert with cooking spray to make clean up a snap! It’ll wipe out with no sticking!
Slow Cookers are wonderful things and if we take a couple of quick precautions to keep food safe while using them… they are even better! 🙂
- 4 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1 12oz sweet baby ray's Cola~Q BBQ sauce (save some for serving)
- 1 12oz can of Coca~Cola soda
- 12 sandwich or hoagie rolls
- Coat slow cooker ceramic insert with cooking spray.
- Preheat on high.
- Add chicken, pour BBQ sauce and soda; stir to mix.
- Cook on high for 3 hours, low for 6-7 hours.
- Before serving, pull or shred chicken with two forks into small pieces.
- Serve on buns with additional BBQ sauce if desired.
- * this chicken recipe freezes well to be served again later 🙂
