When you start to slow cook meats in a crock pot, there are some things you need to keep in mind. First off make sure the slow cooker is large enough for the weight of the meat you are going to put in there. Some people will use a half-size slow cooker which is fine but I would suggest having a larger one just in case. You will want to brown the meat on all sides and add your onions and garlic. Cover and set the slow cooker up to medium high. This is going to require about 6 hours of constant attention because you want to brown everything inside out.
For the vegetables you will want to use frozen chopped cooked rice, beans, potatoes, or half of a pound of ground pork. Do not use the vegetable part of the beans or the rice. If you do not have either of those items frozen they can be purchased at a local grocery store. Make sure you have plenty of liquid to cover all of the items you are going to put in your crock pot. You can use chicken broth if you prefer but it is not necessary.
When the cooking is complete leave your crock pot and allow it to finish cooking. Typically this will take about two to three hours depending on size and heat levels of your crock pot. Use your best judgment, but try to keep close to the cooking method described above so that you do not overcook the rice or beans.
After your crock pot has finished cooking the pot will be ready to serve. A great idea for parties or other gatherings is to set the pot near the table. It will be extra exciting if your guests can see the rice and beans being prepared by your slow cooker.
