When cooking your favorite slow cooker recipes, always allow enough time for the slow cooker to cook the food to the proper doneness. If there is any doubt about the degree of doneness, especially when cooking meat in a slow cooker, use a reliable meat thermometer to ensure that the food has reached the minimum safe temperature.
