You can be occupied elsewhere while your dinner simmers lazily, and by turning your oven or stove top into a slow cooker you find out that you can spend all day cooking, hands-free, with no sacrifice of quality, and no fear of overcooking. LOW-TEMPERATURE COOKING The term “slow cooking” captures the style and the principle of the process, but behind its magical results is simply the science of low-temperature cooking. Let’s use roast beef as a prime example. The doneness temperature of a medium-rare rib roast is 130°F/55°C, meaning the protein in the meat has just begun to firm, making the meat resilient to the touch; the texture of the meat has lost its raw slickness but it is still moist and the juices flow from the meat when it is cut.

Arrange the slices on the platter or plates, overlapping the beans. Spoon the tomatoes and juices in the pot over the pork and serve. 7-l slow cooker rather than a plate after you finish browning it. After stirring half the herb mixture into the tomato-bean mixture, pour the bean mixture over the pork in the slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours. RESTING SLOW-COOKED MEATS Slow-roasted meats need far less resting time (pretty much none) than those that are traditionally roasted. The reason for resting meat that has been roasted at a high temperature is to allow juices that have collected in the cooler center time to migrate back into the dryer (hotter) exterior sections after it comes out of the oven.

Put the turkey breast on the bed of onions, bone-side down. Drizzle the oil over the top. Roast for 15 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 175°F/80°C and continue roasting until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat (without touching bone) reads 170°F/77°C, about 8 hours. Rest at room temperature for 10 minutes before carving. Slow-roasted meats need far less resting time than those that are traditionally roasted. SHORTCUT: HIGH-HEAT ROASTING One big reason turkey breast meat has a tendency to dry out during cooking is that the actual fibers of the meat are delicate and easily broken, which belies suppleness and allows moisture to drain away.
