BEGGINERS GUIDE

to Slow Cooking

a begginers guide to Slow CookING

The Breville Slow Cooker with EasySear™ Insert is designed specifically for flavor layering. A technique professional chefs use to enhance and deepen the taste of meals by using the same pan for browning onions, searing meats and creating casseroles, curries, soup, stock and bolognaise.

For this reason, Breville has now developed a Slow Cooker with EasySear™ Insert. Simply remove the EasySear™ Insert from the Slow Cooker and use on the gas, electric or ceramic stovetop to caramelized vegetables and sear meats before placing back into the appliance and commencing the Slow Cooker function.

The following is a guide to help simplify the process of slow cooking, allowing you to obtain optimum results from your Slow Cooker.

We have also included helpful hints and recipes for successful slow cooking.

PREPARING MEAT AND POULTRY

Select the leanest cuts when purchasing meat. Trim the meat or poultry of any visible fat. If possible, purchase chicken portions without the skin. Otherwise, the slow cooking process will result in extra liquid being formed from the fat as it melts.

For casserole type recipes, cut the meat into cubes, approximately 1in - 1.5in (2.5cm - 3 cm). Slow cooking allows less tender cuts of meat to be used. The bones can be left on meat or poultry if liked

and will help to keep meat tender during cooking.

SUITABLE MEAT CUTS FOR

SLOW COOKING

Beef

Beef chuck, skirt, round steak,

 

boneless shin (Gravy) beef,

 

bone-in-shin(Osso Bucco).

 

 

Lamb

Lamb shanks, drumsticks

 

(frenched shanks), neck chops,

 

boned out forequarter or

 

shoulder.

 

 

Veal

Veal diced leg, shoulder/

 

forequarter chops and steaks,

 

neck chops, knuckle (osso

 

bucco)

 

 

Pork

Pork leg steaks, diced belly,

 

Diced shoulder, Boneless loin

 

chops

 

 

PREPARING VEGETABLES

Vegetables should be cut into even-sizedpieces to ensure more even cooking. Frozen vegetables must be thawed before adding to other foods cooking in the Slow Cooker.

PREPARING DRIED BEANS AND PULSES

If time permits, overnight soaking of dried beans and pulses is preferable. After soaking, drain and place in the Slow Cooker and cover with sufficient water to reach double their volume. Cook beans on the High setting for 2 to 4 hours or until tender. Pre-soakedbeans and pulses will cook a little faster.

SEARING AND BROWNING

BEFORE SLOW COOKING

Searing and browning in the EasySear™ Insert on the stovetop may take a little extra time and whilst not strictly necessary, the rewards are evident in the end result.

The EasySear™ Insert keeps the heat stable and uniform allowing the meat to brown and form an even crust. Plus

searing and browning seals in the moisture, intensifies the flavor and provides more tender results.

Once searing and browning is complete, return the EasySear™ Insert to the stainless steel housing with all the tasty caramelized ingredients inside.

USING THE TEMPERATURE CONTROL SETTINGS

This Slow Cooker has three settings: LOW, HIGH and DUAL. Use the recommended guidelines offered in the recipe to determine cooking time and heat setting. Dishes can be prepared well in advance of mealtime and cooking time regulated so that food is ready to serve at a convenient time.

It is almost impossible to overcook in the Slow Cooker particularly when using the LOW setting. A general rule of thumb for most slow cooked meat and vegetable recipes is:

setting cooking time

LOW

6 to 10 hours

 

 

HIGH

3 to 4 hours

 

 

DUAL

4 to 6 hours

NOTE:

These times are approximate. Times can vary depending on ingredients and quantities in recipes.

NOTE:

High humidity, altitude, cold tap water and ingredients may slightly affect the cooking times in the Slow Cooker.

Your favorite traditional recipes can also be easily adapted to this Slow Cooker. Simply halve the amount of liquid and increase the cooking time. The following is a guide to adjusting your favorite recipes:

a begginers guide to slow cooking

Low Setting

The LOW setting gently simmers food for an extended period of time without overcooking or burning. No stirring is required when using this setting.

High Setting

The HIGH setting is used when cooking dried beans or pulses and will cook food in half the time required for the Low setting. Some foods may boil when cooked on the high setting, so it may be necessary to add extra liquid. This will depend on the recipe and the amount of time in which it is cooked. Occasional stirring of stews and casseroles will improve flavor distribution.

The High setting in this Slow Cooker cooks considerably faster than the DUAL or LOW settings and can be used if time is a constraint. Simply place your favorite meal on High for 3 to 4 hours and you will have a slow cooked meal in a fraction of the time.

DUAL Setting

The DUAL setting will begin cooking on High and then will shift to Low after approximately 2 hours of cooking time for added ease and simplicity.

ROASTING IN THE Slow Cooker

Roasting meats in the Slow Cooker creates tender, flavorsome results. The long, slow, covered cooking process breaks down and softens the connective and muscle tissue within the meat, making it easier to slice. Cheaper cuts of meat can be used to provide perfect results cooked by this method.

Meat will not brown during the Slow Cooking process, so for browner results sear in the EasySear™ Insert on the stovetop first before placing back into the stainless steel housing for cooking.

The addition of liquid is not required for roasting. Elevate the meat to be cooked on the provided stainless steel rack. This will assist in keeping the surface of the meat dry and free from any fat released throughout the cooking process.

POT ROASTING IN THE Slow Cooker

The addition of liquid is required for pot roasting. Place sufficient liquid into the removable EasySear™ Insert to cover up to a third of the meat. Meat will not brown during the pot roasting process, so for browner results sear in the EasySear™ Insert on the stovetop first before placing back into the stainless steel housing for cooking.

USING THE EasySear™ Insert AND STAINLESS STEEL lid AS STAND ALONE COOKWARE

This Slow Cooker is equipped with a diecast removable EasySear™ Insert and Stainless Steel Lid to withstand temperature extremes. It can be used for browning and searing on a gas, electric or ceramic stovetop or as a traditional roasting pan for use in the oven.

The removable EasySear™ Insert and lid are safe for use on stovetops and in conventional ovens up to 480ºF (250ºC).

With proper use and maintenance, these products will give many years of service and help to make this Slow Cooker a convenient, reliable and versatile meal maker.

NOTE:

Use of the stainless steel lid in a conventional oven may cause

discoloration. This is normal and will not affect the cooking performance.

hints and tips

Trim all visible fat from meat or poultry.

If a recipe calls for browning the meat, it may be browned in the EasySear™ Insert on the gas, electric or ceramic stovetop.

Meat and poultry require at least 6 to 7 hours of cooking on LOW setting or 3 to 4 hours on High setting.

Ensure that the food or liquid to be cooked fills half to ¾ of the EasySear™ Insert.

If after cooking the liquid quantity is excessive, remove the lid and

operate the Slow Cooker on the HIGH setting for 30 to 45 minutes or until the liquid reduces by the desired amount. Alternatively, the liquid can be thickened by adding a mixture of cornflour and water and cooking on High setting without the lid until sauce has thickened.

DO’S

Always thaw frozen meat and poultry before cooking.

Use dry oven mitts when lifting the stainless steel lid or removable

EasySear™ Insert after searing or slow cooking.

Place the EasySear™ Insert onto a heat proof mat if serving from the EasySear™ Insert at the table.

To keep foods warm for serving, turn the Temperature Control dial to the LOW setting until ready to serve.

DONT’S

Do not operate the Slow Cooker without the EasySear™ Insert in position.

Do not cook with frozen meats or poultry.

Do not remove the stainless steel lid from the Slow Cooker unnecessarily as this will result in major heat loss.

Stirring is not necessary when Slow Cooking. However, if cooking on the High setting, stirring occasionally will help to distribute flavors throughout the recipe.

Do not use HIGH setting if you intend on being away from home for more than 3 hours.

NEVER

Place water or other liquids into the stainless steel housing of the Slow Cooker.

Immerse the base, cord, or plug of the Slow Cooker in water or any other liquid.

Touch hot surfaces with bare hands.

Deep fry in the EasySear™ Insert.
