January 10, 2012: Slow Cooked Potatoes and Mushrooms Recipe

Bookmark and Share
Most slow cooker recipes combine meat and vegetables but this can muddy the flavors and be detrimental to texture. Next time you’re in a time pinch, consider putting the night’s dinner veggies in a crock pot before you leave for work and then simply broil or sauté a protein to go with it when you get home. This recipe is also great to make a nutritious side dish for a party or buffet.

Slow Cooked Potatoes and Mushrooms

3 medium-sized red potatoes, cut into eights
4 large brown mushrooms, quartered
1 small white onion, cut into lengthwise chunks
4 cloves garlic, minced
½ t. Seasoned salt
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 t. lemon juice
1 t. olive oil

Place potatoes in bottom of crock pot; sprinkle with seasoned salt and kosher salt and black pepper to taste. Layer vegetables on top. Sprinkle lemon juice and olive oil over the top. Turn slow cooker to low and cook for 4 to 6 hours, until potatoes are soft.
