Slow-Cooking: Simple to Make, Complex Flavors, Endless Variety

Beef StewStaying warm throughout the winter season is easy with slow-cooked meals. Simple recipes provide delicious dinner ideas that can be ready to serve by the time you get home from work. All you need is your slow cooker and a quick stop at D’Arcy’s Meat Market.

Your slow-cooked dinner starts with any kind of meat or poultry cooked in a delicious sauce. Choose from chicken, beef or pork roasts and ribs; anything that you want falling apart, tender, juicy and infused with flavor.

Flavors come from marinating and can be done using any sort of dressing or sauce. Italian dressing is commonly used with wild meat such as deer and moose. Teriyaki sauce, Jamaican jerk or Tandoori are all very rich
in taste, but your favorite BBQ sauce will also work. Check out our in-store selection on your next visit.

Your meat will be tender and slow-cooked to perfection provided you remember that moisture is key. Add plenty of water throughout the cooking as required to ensure moisture is maintained. Vegetables, carrots, potatoes and ginger root are easy to find and compliment any recipe with heartiness.

Or use your slow cooker to warm up with soup! There are so many different kinds you can easily make, especially chicken noodle, a staple in any home during the winter! Try minestrone soup which you can make with either steak or ground beef, highlighted with green peppers. Italian wedding soup using our Sausage Meat on sale for $5.99/lb, goes great with our home made cabbage rolls.
