    They might be pretty pictures but the first recipe I read was for a
    beef stew made entirely by dumping things into a slow cooker. No
    browning, no sweating of vegetables, no attempt to differentiate
    between cooking times for different ingredients. A recipe for
    crapola. I used to think all crockpot recipes were as bad as this but
    I've been repeatedly informed by rfc-ers that some people cook well
    even using a crockpot. I suppose so, but you couldn't prove it from
    recipes like this. -aem

    Pretty much anything that you could cook in a covered pot in the oven,
    can be cooked in a crockpot, with less attention and lower energy usage.

    Yes, but most crockpot recipes are just as stated above: dump a bunch
    of raw stuff into the pot and set to simmer for 6-8 hours. The
    result: CRAP. Good cooking requires some work. You need to sear,
    sweat, season, etc. etc.

    I make SUPERB soups and stews and such in the crockpot but you MUST "layer"
    the ingredients, e.g brown meats and some vegetables, add vrious ingredients
    at different times, etc...

    Otherwise you end up with boiled slop...

    Well it isn't that bad. At least it didn't include the usual stupid
    envelope of onion soup mix...
