you can't go wrong with a crock pot! Last year after breasting out the snow geese, I stuck the legs and wings in milk, took them out before going to bed and stuck them in the crockpot over night in plain water. Before I left for work, the meat fell off the bone and I add beans, peas, carrots, potatoes, water chestnuts, olives, and anything else I could find in the pantry. It was GREAT! for dinner that night.
I've also cubed up meat, set it in water over night, and then added my favorite spices to make chili for dinner that night. Hang in there and keep tweaking things. I think you will enjoy the crockpot cooking. Good luck :salude:
thanks be to God
