    I make something similar in my Instant Pot. I can throw it all together and in less than an hour I have a delicious dinner with no fussing. We have it at least once or twice a month.

    Thank you! I love no-fuss crockpot recipes for days when I want to focus on providing a welcoming retreat for the family tomorrow. ;)

    The crockpot is sitting beside my roaster which has a turkey in it. My mother-in-love taught me to cook the turkey the day before , debone it, separate the white and dark meat then make quarts of gravy. Pour a light covering of gravy over the turkey, seal with plastic wrap, then refridgerate and sleep in thursday! Presto! Enjoy your family and guests without any bones.

    I’ve read that using frozen meat in the crock pot leaves it in the food temperature danger zone too long (I guess because the meat heats up so slowly in a crock pot). Have you read otherwise or is there disagreement on this?


    Laura Reply:

    I’ve read conflicting information on this and have chosen not to worry about it. In my experience, the meat thaws very quickly in the crock pot so I don’t feel it is a concern. :)
