Alanís Kitchen Tip
- Tougher, less expensive cuts of meat are perfect to use in the slow cooker.  The slow cooking process breaks down tough connective tissue, making the meat tender.  The tougher cuts are more flavorful than the more tender pieces, especially if browned first before adding to other ingredients.  And the long cooking time brings out the full flavor of the less expensive cuts.
