A Crock-Pot can make a wide array of dishes, including yogurt, soup, stew, chili and pot roast. Meat dishes can also be made in a Crock-Pot.
With two ingredients, a Crock-Pot can turn milk and yogurt culture into creamy yogurt overnight. A Crock-Pot heats the milk to get rid of any impurities and keeps the milk at a stable temperature to incubate the yogurt culture. The stable temperature is what allows the yogurt culture to transform milk into yogurt overnight.
Taco soup is a simple soup that can be made in a Crock-Pot. The user cooks the chicken or ground beef before placing it into the Crock-Pot, pours in the cans of beans, corn, tomatoes and chilies, adds the seasoning and the meat, and cooks the mixture on high for two hours. With a Crock-Pot, the cooking time is adjustable. The soup can be cooked on high for two hours or cooked on low for four hours. Even after the soup is cooked, it can be kept warm and safe to eat for hours by keeping the temperature on low.
To make a pot roast in a Crock-Pot, the user places a beef roast, water and seasoning into the pot, and cooks the ingredients on low for seven to nine hours. Many different types of meat can be cooked in a similar fashion in a Crock-Pot.
