Tips for Making

  • Seasoning: Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preference. If you enjoy a spicier dish, feel free to add more Tony’s Cajun seasoning. For a milder flavor, reduce the amount of Cajun seasoning and increase the onion and garlic powder. Don’t be afraid to taste as you go and modify the spices to suit your palate.
  • Butter: For an even richer flavor, you can increase the amount of butter used in the recipe. Alternatively, substitute butter with ghee for a nutty, caramelized taste that enhances the dish’s depth. The fat from the butter or ghee also helps in keeping the meat tender and the potatoes creamy.
  • Potatoes: To ensure even cooking, make sure your potatoes are cut into similar-sized pieces. If you’re using mini potatoes, halving them is sufficient. This uniformity helps prevent some pieces from being undercooked while others are overcooked. Mini potatoes are convenient and often have a great texture when slow-cooked.
  • Slow Cooker: Cooking times can vary depending on the make and model of your slow cooker. It’s a good idea to check the dish around the 5-hour mark to see if the meat is tender and the potatoes are fully cooked. If necessary, adjust the cooking time accordingly. If you find the potatoes are cooking faster than the meat, you can add them later in the cooking process.

How to Store

  • Refrigerate: Store any leftovers in an airtight container. Place them in the refrigerator, where they will keep for up to 3-4 days. This makes it easy to enjoy the dish later in the week without compromising on flavor or texture.
  • Freeze: For longer storage, transfer the cooled dish to a freezer-safe container. Ensure it is sealed tightly to prevent freezer burn. You can freeze the dish for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to eat, thaw it in the refrigerator overnight for the best results.
  • Reheat: Reheat the dish either in the microwave or on the stovetop. If using the microwave, heat in short intervals, stirring occasionally to ensure even heating. If reheating on the stovetop, add a splash of water or broth to maintain moisture and prevent the dish from drying out. Heat over medium until warmed through.
