This time of the year, slow cooking something tasty in the crock pot might be just what the doctor ordered.
Meat Expert for Fareway, Steven Peterson said beef and pork are popular options to cook in the crock pot over the winters. A beef roast is a simple option, just add seasonings, meat, vegetables, broth and a little time. Barbecue pork sandwiches are becoming more popular and can be made with a marinade of water, soup or even root beer.
Peterson said the most important thing when cooking with your crock pot is to keep the lid on.
