Slow Cooking: Perfect Winter Food
There’s nothing like a delicious, home-cooked meal to greet you when you arrive home in the winter months, and slow-cooking is a fabulous way to take the stress out of creating good food for your family.
At Ó Crualaoí, we understand the importance of great quality food, and our products can all be fully traced from farm to fork. Our products are local, and we’ve introduced ranges of healthy options that can be bought in bulk to save even more time and money.
How a Slow Cooker Could Help You
A slow cooker is a great way to enjoy good food when you’re busy, and you can create tender and full-flavoured meals for all the family throughout the winter when you cook this way. Here’s how to get the most from your slow cooker:
• Plan ahead. Simply chop your vegetables and meat and pop them into your slow cooker in the morning, and return home to the comforting smell and great taste of home-cooked food.
• Try new things. Many different meals can be cooked in a slow cooker, from stews, casseroles and sauces to a full roast dinner. You can find a huge va-riety of recipes online, and experiment to find new family favourites.
• Cook up a storm. You can get the whole family involved in creating great winter meals, so that the weekend is a rest for everyone. Plan a big family walk in the cold weather, and get everyone chopping before you leave so that you can pop the slow cooker on and return to a delicious, healthy meal with no hassle.
Our slow cooker favourite is Beef Bourguignon, designed by our Head Chef, Joe. This recipe is ideal for the slow cooker or the stove, and we know it will become a family favourite in no time. You can buy great quality beef to make this special dish from our butchers at Ó Crualaoí , and we’d love to hear whether your family loved it as much as we do!
