I would just like to rant for a moment. Specifically, regarding recipes on the internet.
When you leave a “review” stating:
“This recipe was great! I followed it almost exactly. Except that instead of beef, I used pork; I used chicken broth instead of cream of broccoli. Also, I cooked it on the stove instead of in the oven. Oh, and I didn’t have paprika, or pepper, but it seemed okay anyway. And I was out of red wine vinegar so I used balsamic. Also threw in some carrots at the end to give it some color. This recipe is a keeper! A++++++”
… and THEN you give the recipe FIVE STARS?
Seriously. I don’t understand it. Also: I shouldn’t have to read through 40 reviews to determine that it’s better to “cut the roast into 4 pieces” (though never in my life have i found that in cooking a roast, it is better to have it in pieces prior to cooking it, WUT?).
Anyway: Slow cooker FTW. If i have screwed this one up it’s probably a sign (that chinese food is in my imminent future.)
