Tips for Cooking Beef

Here are some tips for cooking your beef just right in your slow cooker. You will enjoy your beef recipes far more when following these directions and having your recipes come out in the best way possible.

  1. Slow cooking beef helps to develop a wonderful flavor.

  2. Tough cuts of beef cook incredibly well in a slow cooker, rather than using another method of cooking. The long cooking process in the slow cooker helps to make the beef more tender and juicy.

  3. Cuts of beef that have a lot of fat help to add some moisture and flavor to the recipe. If you see some marbling between the muscles and not in the surface fat, this is a sign that this piece of beef would be ideal for slow cooking.

  4. It is a good idea to brown the beef slightly before putting it into your slow cooker. By doing this, browning helps to carmalize the beef, adding some flavor to it. Marinating the beef can also help to bring out the beef's true flavor.

  5. You can roll beef in some seasoned flour before you put it into your slow cooker. By doing this, you are helping to thicken the sauce that surrounds your beef and other ingredients. 

  6. Always add some salt to perk up the taste of your beef. Also, great ingredients to consider adding to boost flavor on a regular basis are fresh garlic or some onion. For a spaghetti dish, oregano or garlic powder can be good seasonings to add.
