Big slowcooker, small meal.
I just got a slowcooker and I'm so excited it try it out! Something I'm a bit worried about is that I got a relatively big 6-quart model and I usually only cook for two people. Is there something that I can put in there to basically take up space and therefore raise the liquid level? Of course, it would have to be non-reactive and not leech any flavours.
I cook for one and use my crockpot regularly with no problems. I do cook on low most of the time and you really don't need any liquid unless the recipe calls for it-trust me, I learned the hard way!
I just made a fantastic pulled pork (6lb bone in shoulder) and only used 1/2 cup on liquid. I never realized that a small amount would work so well. I used ginger ale as my liquid, next time I want to try apple cider. Have fun, you are better off with a lrg one since you can use it for both big and small. I hear people complain that they have a small one.
