So a week ago I experimented with a 'zero-prep stew'. It's not completely zero-prep, but close enough! You will need:
- 4 chicken legs;
- 500 gram of pre-cut soup greens (I used pea-soup greens);
- Packet of sieved tomatoes (500gr);
- Herbs and spices;
- Splash of red wine.
I skinned the legs and pre-browned the meat a bit, and then I stacked it all into the slowcooker: first the meat, then the greens. klik made a selection from our extensive library of herbs and spices, we added the wine and as last we poured the tomato-stuff all over it.
It turned out quite nicely, with not too much moisture. And as always, the meat just fell off the bone -- just how we like it.
Yesterday, I tried out making a beef rogan josh stew, with diced onions and tomatoes, but the tomatoes gave off so much moisture that the taste of the curry itself was muted beyond recognition. Not a recipe for the slowcooker, then!
