We got home on Monday after a long weekend of skiing and I was too lazy to cook or do any errands, so I did what all lazy smart people do: made dinner in a slow cooker! I made this amazing Slow Cooker Cassoulet recipe that I created in partnership with Randall Beans. This is seriously the most delicious and gourmet stew you can make. It even sounds all fancy – ”cah-soo-lay.” Ooh la la.

A Cassoulet is a French stew with white beans and smoked meats, and it is traditionally cooked on the stove top for hours to let all the flavors blend to perfection… but ain’t nobody got time for that! At least not on days that we come back from a weekend getaway! And that’s where the slow cooker part comes in. This recipe takes about 10-15 minutes of prep work and then the slow cooker does the rest. And let me tell you, this comes out delicious. The smoked sausages infuse the whole dish with an amazing smoky flavor with lots of depth, and you get a really yummy, hearty stew with minimal work. That’s my kind of recipe.

Little Cooking Tips

Wednesday 16th of March 2016

So great to read that you guys got to take Monday off and have a couple days just for you! We also managed to do something similar, as last Monday was Clean Monday here (which is the celebration of the beginning of Lent), and we both got a day off work and left Athens:) The dinner you guys had looks great, and if you like fish and chips as much as we do (WE LOVE IT!), then please, try it once with a side of skordalia (the mashed potato version of it), you'll love the combination! We laughed so hard at strikeout on the "so I did what all --lazy-- smart people do" :):) We don't have a slow cookers (the are available in the last few years here, but for some strange reason not advertised, and no one uses them), so we'll cook your yummy recipe the traditional way on a lazy Sunday:) Sending you lots of hugs, Panos and Mirella
