This rustic yet elegant pie is composed of a few simple ingredients. Break through the crisp upper crust and you reveal the mellow nuances of rosemary-infused lamb that, in turn, give way to a clandestine bottom layer of potatoes, which serves no purpose other than to soak up the rich, intensely flavorful juices.
There are days when you want to lose yourself in the kitchen, enjoying the hours spent standing over the stove. And then there are all of the other days of the year. When your calendar is packed -- or when you simply want a satisfying supper -- let your slow cooker handle dinner duties. These easy (and easy-to-clean-up) recipes prove that you can create flavor-packed, hearty meals with a little prep and the flip of a switch.
Use a sturdy pot, skillet, or slow cooker to prepare complete hearty meals, including beef stew, chicken and dumplings, chili, vegetarian curry, gumbo, shrimp jambalaya, paella, arroz con pollo, and much more.
The meat can be cooked through step three up to three days in advance. Let it cool in the liquid in the pot, refrigerate, then transfer the pot to a 350 degrees oven and heat through, about 45 minutes, before straining the liquid and serving the dish.
