These are the best invention since sliced bread. Love my crockpot and I use it with the same frequency all year round. Today I cooked a Corned Beef, which was going to do two meals. Note the use of the word 'was'. There was only enough left over for a certain persons lunch, after they kept going back and cutting off more slices. OK I confess I went back for more as well. The meat was melt in your mouth tender.
