Slow Cooking Calls For Storage Onions
(NAPSA) - Busy cooks who want convenience and flavor often use a slow cooker to prepare family-pleasing, one-dish meals.
Slow cookers can save time and energy by letting ingredients like onions perform their magic while you work or play. At the end of a hectic day, the aroma of a home-cooked meal will greet you.
Many cooks find that onions are indispensable for adding healthy nutrients and flavor to slow cooker recipes. Because of their intense flavor that mellows with heat, storage or cooking-type onions are perfect for soups, stews and savory dishes with longer cooking times. Yellow, red and white storage onions, unlike sweet onions, have multiple layers of thick, papery skin. Look for storage onions grown in the U.S.A. in supermarkets and grocery stores through April.
In this recipe, storage onions smother a pot roast and after hours of cooking become part of a hearty meal with a rich and savory sauce.
