There is something magical that happens with certain foods when you slow down the cooking: flavors deepen and become more complex, meat turns meltingly tender, and fruits and vegetables develop a rich, caramelized exterior. With The Slow & Easy Recipes, the cooks at America’s Test kitchen have taken a fresh approach to the classic techniques of slow cooking to give you uncomplicated recipes that are worth the wait.
Whether you’re looking for the definitive version of familiar favorites (Classic Beef Stew or Pot Roast with Root Vegetables) or something new to add to your repertoire (Cuban-Style Roast Pork or Lamb Tagine), you’ll find it all here. Find out why cooking a roast at an unusually low temperature gives you the most tender, flavorful meat ever and learn one of the easiest, most foolproof ways to cook fish (in a large covered pot). We’ll tell you why cooking side dishes in the oven (rather than on the stove) gives you the most consistent, reliable results every time and how a moderate oven temperature and extended cooking time can make the most of out-of-season fruits and vegetables, creating new and unexpected flavors. With The Best Slow & Easy Recipes in hand, you’ll discover that sometimes slower is simply better and easier.
