Easy slow cooker recipe for chicken or beef

If you have a slow cooker, cooking can be done with minimal preparation time, using cuts of meat that are often tough for other methods.

Note that food from the slow cooker does not look very appetizing if it is served as is. The taste and convinience, however make up for it. If you want, you can use garnishing to make the dish look better on the plates.

Ingredients

You do not need any cooking fat for this dish, which makes it the more healthy.
