Convert a Dutch Oven Recipe Into a Slow Cooker Recipe With This Rule

One of the most important (and potentially confusing) adjustments is understanding how the oven temperature in a Dutch oven recipe translates to the temperature setting on a slow cooker. While recipes that use a Dutch oven may specify cooking at 350°F, slow cookers only have low and high temperature settings.

One further tip: reduce the amount of liquid you add to the dish. There’s virtually no evaporation when you use a slow cooker. So you don’t need to add much broth or water at all.
