I'm not very good at this
Any experts who are willing to pass on tips on how to use a slow cooker? It’s supposed to be easy, but I can’t seem to figure out how much liquid to add and my dishes are turning out runny.
I made short ribs on Monday night and I added too much beef broth. I ended up having to reduce it on the stove top and I also added some barley to thicken it. Something else I noticed was it was a little fatty. I’m not sure if that’s something you have to be careful of when using a slow cooker or it was from the bacon I added to the dish.
The final product was tasty, but I’ll wait until I get the hang of it to pass along my recipes. I feel like this is something I need to figure out before the baby comes.
