This may seem like a strange title for a site devoted to quick cooking, but long cooking slow cooker recipes that cook for at least 10 hours are really a necessity for today's busy cook. Work days plus commuting time usually adds up to at least 10 hours. Recipes that cook in 5-6 hours, even on low, just won't work for many families.

It is possible, with the newer slow cookers, to set a timer and let the crockpot sit for up to 2 hours before the cooking process begins. This type of cooking is safe, but I personally prefer a recipe that already has a longer cooking time. Having said that, you may need to reduce the cooking time for these recipes if you have a newer crockpot since they cook at a much hotter temperatures. Get to know your crockpot, check the crockpot cooking temperature, and be sure you understand its timing and heat before you use these recipes.

Read these recipes carefully; some use more delicate ingredients that need to be added in the last 20-30 minutes of cooking time. Stir your meal thoroughly before you serve it. If you're at home, these recipes can be cooked on HIGH for 5-6 hours And enjoy these slow cooking, long cooking crockpot recipes.
