Expert Tips

Although it’s tempting, avoid peeking in the slow cooker during cooking. Lifting the lid lets steam escape, and steam helps with the cooking.

Browning the meat adds flavor and helps seal in the juices, but if you’re short on time, you can skip this step.

Serve this Asian-influenced roast on a bed of hot cooked rice or Asian noodles, along with steamed sugar snap peas.
