Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

Do you have some good recipes you would like to make in your crock pot or slow cooker but you aren't sure how long they should cook?  If so, here are some guidelines to follow:

  • Almost all meat/vegetable combinations should cook at least 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.
  • Recipes that say to cook or bake 15 to 30 minutes should cook at least 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours on high or 4 to 8 hours on low setting.
  • Recipes that say to cook or bake 35 to 45 minutes should cook at least 3 to 4 hours on high or 6 to 8 hours on low.
  • Recipes that say to cook or bake 50 minutes to 3 hours should cook at least 4 to 6 hours on high or 8 to 18 hours on low.
