Pillsbury always has reliable recipes, and I didn't need any more than the ones in this book. I first read it from beginning to end to inspire myself, and then went about cooking up storms. All the meals came out tasting wonderful. Now I am ready to "tweak", you know - a little more here, a little less there -, but sticking to the main recipe in the book.
After all, it's Pillsbury - the experts!
Pillsbury and the slow cooker are a great match. The recipes are easy to put together with ingredients that you probably have on hand or are readily available, and what could be easier than cooking in a slow cooker? I have already prepared several of the recipes and I am looking forward to trying more of them. The Turkey and Bacon Wild Rice Casserole was a big hit. Hearty Steak and Tater Soup brought ooh's and aah's at work too. The slow cooker is particularly good with lean cuts of beef. For this, try Beef Brisket with Cranberry Gravy or Carmelized Onion Pot Roast. Actually try them BOTH as they are scrumptious!
For readers new to using a slow cooker, Pillsbury shares ten 'secrets' for using the appliance successfully. There are five sections in the book covering main dishes, poultry, soups, stews and chiles, sandwiches and vegetables and side dishes. There are 140 recipes in total and many have illustrations. Each recipe is accompanied by Nutritional Information and a sidebar offering tips and serving suggestions.
Although a bit smaller than some of the other books in the collection, the Pillsbury Doughboy Slow Cooker Recipes is outstanding in quality. It's a big hit in my kitchen...it will be one of your favorites as well!!
Our advice: buy one or the other, but not both.
