  4. Add the onion and cook until translucent.
  5. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and stir well.
  6. Remove from the stove top.
  7. Cover the pan and cook in a 300F degree oven for 2 hours.

Slow Cooker Tips:

  • Preheat the crock before adding ingredients, or cook on the highest setting for the first hour to prevent bacteria from finding a happy home in your slow cooker.
  • Place your meats at the bottom of your slow cooker so they have proper heat exposure.
  • Don't over fill your slow cooker. It should be 1/2 to 2/3rds full to have proper food to heat ratio.
  • Don't peak! When ever you life the lid of your slow cooker you are decreasing the temperature. It's okay to stir the ingredients, but not too often.
  • Because slow cookers mellow out seasonings it is the perfect vehicle for recipes like 40 Garlic Clove Chicken.
