Fans can attest, there's nothing better than throwing some ingredients into the slow cooker then letting it do all the work. Not only does the long cooking time break down any chewiness in meat, it's safe to leave on while you head out the door to run errands or spend a day in the park. With the weather warming up, who wants to spend more time in the kitchen?
