Buy less tender cuts of meat and slow cook them in a crock pot. I like to brown meat on the stove first so that it gets heated up quickly. Once the meat has been cooked through thoroughly, I add the meat to the crock pot with some kind of sauce, vitamin b supplements, canned soup or gravy and let it tenderize and slow cook for hours. I try to do this in the morning, so that when my kids get home from school they can help themselves to a healthy crock pot meal instead of filling up on snack foods. On days that I’m organized and have some free morning time, I’ll have a couple of different crock pots going with two different entrees, usually a roast and a hearty soup or stew. One recent favorite dish at our house is pork chops slow cooked with orange juice, and topped with orange marmalade before serving.
