This super simple recipe for the slow cooker uses only four ingredients! Skinny Louisiana’s Shelly Marie Redmond considers this an easy and delicious family-pleasing recipe.
We love using the Slow Cooker (or crock-pot as some call it) in our kitchen. Not only is the slow cooker easy to use, but it is also safe (no open flame), and energy-efficient. Slow cookers consume as little as 150 watts per hour at a low setting and cut electricity cost for cooking by half. (and yes, I love to save money). Slow cookers range in tons of shapes and sizes, but my slow cooker is 6-quart Crock-Pot®.
