If you compare this recipe to the previous recipe "Mushroom Beef Stroganoff" this information is provided. If the idea of the "Speedy-Prep Beef Stroganoff" is as a version of the "Mushroom Beef Stroganoff" would it have killed the writer to refer to this recipe?
In general, I expect a book of recipes to be consistent - this group of recipes appear to be a cut and paste from different sources. If so, the price I would expect to pay would be more like $2.
I expected to see information at the beginning of each section, this was missing. For example, the beef section could have described what type of ground beef (80% lean? 95% lean) would be a good thing for a "healthy slow cooker recipe." What type of meat is meant by "stew" meat? What are good options? I was both amused and concerned by these descriptions of what I think is the same beef product: stewing meat, cubed beef (boneless), stew beef, 1.5 inch squares stew beef, cubed stew beef, cubes sirloin tip (alternative, round steak), beef bourguignon (low cost cut can be used).
What bothers me most about this book is that I can go online and find a motley set of recipes for slow cooker meals, recipes that are usually more complete and with actual details, what I needed was a book that could bring this together in a way that I could plan and do. This book fails. Where it most fails is describing the size of slow cooker needed for each recipe. I have to guess and assume that 4 portions might be too small for my 6 quart cooker, but what about 6 portions? But even the number of portions is missing from most of these recipes.
This book is going into my Goodwill bin, I will more cautious in future.
This book is not only a solid winner as far as how it is put together - it also happens to contain some of the most delicious variations on slow pot cooking you'll find. To begin, she discusses the advantages of the slow cooker (yes, that is the generic name for those appliances that most of us call Crock Pots!): some are obvious, such as the fact that they save energy of the sort that runs our house as well as the sort that fuels our bodies, that nutritious, healthy and varying meals can be easily assembled in that morning and provide full course meals hot and ready to serve at the end of the day's work. Elias offers tips for using the slow cooker, how to shop for one, the ingredients most suitable for creating meals, planning meals around what your slow cooker can produce, and then come the RECIPES!
There is a section on Slow Cooker Chicken (Sweet Chick Squash, Mediterranean Style Chicken etc), Slow Cooker beans (various soups, Chick and Baked Beans, Black Eyed Pea Stew, etc), Slow Cooker Beef (All Day Beef Stew, Spicy Pepper Fajitas, Carrot, Potato and Beef Pot Roast, Spiced Beef and Cabbage Casserole, etc), Slow Cooker Vegetables (Quick-Prep Seasoned Caponata, Slow-Cooked Artichoke Dish, Veggie Lover's Curry and Veggie Lover's Pasta, etc), Slow Cooker Miscellaneous (get ready for Slow Cooker Banana Bread, Slow Cooker Swiss Fondue, Granola and Apple Cinnamon Casserole, etc), Slow Cooker Fish (try the Orange-Lemon Seasoned Fish), and Slow Cooker Deserts (Classic Cranapple Crisp, Honey and Apple Cinnamon Granola Cobbler, etc).
Elias' recipes are excellent in the way they align ingredients with what is best or feasible for the Slow Cooker and her directions for preparation are excellent. Give this a try and keep it around the kitchen for wholesome, fast, and delicious meals. Grady Harp, January 13
Some other reviewers had their panties in a wad because many recipes included using "a can of soup" or some other prepared/ prepackaged food that would have preservatives, etc. But, I think that the author is only telling us about slow cooker recipes-s/he isn't required to also tell us how to do substitutions (make your own soup or broth or whatever to put in there if you don't want to use a can- I do it all the time!). I tried a couple of the recipes, and did as I always do and changed something if I wanted to. Especially in a crock pot. For the most part, I think this book is full of good, usable ideas. There are a lot of things that were a bit over my head, too, like the use of wine or cooking alcohols-something I don't ever intend to do. I think those types of recipes were too many in number and I'm betting a lot of people probably won't use them. But, I could be wrong! I think it was well written and user friendly. The beauty of a slow cooker is that you can take a recipe and then do what you want, with ingredients, with time cooked, heat settings, etc. So, yeah, I think it was pretty good!
