6) Read the Entire Recipe
It may not seem like a time-saver at first, but always read the entire recipe before starting to cook. It can save you time in potential misinterpretations, in case of poorly laid out directions. Or, you may realize you want to make some tweaks of your own. For example, you may decide to bypass browning the meat before placing it in the slow cooker with the other ingredients. Although olive oil was on the ingredient list, it was only intended for the browning process. Without reading the recipe in full, you may unwittingly add the oil to the crock pot. In another example, the first part may give instructions for the main course of the recipe, while a second part gives instructions for the sauce. If you haven’t read it through, you may not realize you could be doing things simultaneously.
