Poor man's slow cooker?

User1 | May 21, 2014 11:01 AM

Hello all,

I tried to search online for something, but have come up blank so far. Has anyone done something on doing a poor man's slow cooker? I don't really want to buy a slow cooker cause they are mostly used for cooking meats, and the last thing me or probably anyone needs to do is eat more meat. I just have a few recipes that call for a slow cooker and would like to try them out. I'm thinking I could just cook in a regular pot and keep the temp or flame really low. Is it really that easy?

Another reason I don't want to pick up a slow cooker is I hate to buy stuff and it just accumulates! There's only one reason I would buy one and that's if it doubles as a rice cooker. Also it needs to be for 1-2 peeps.

Any ideas or words of advice will be greatly appreciated.
