Cook's Tips:

*Safety Tip: The stainless steel inner pot will be hot during and after cooking. Use a long-handled utensil when stirring and removing food.

Microwave: Add ground beef into the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven or the Rockcrok® Everyday Pan and microwave, covered, on HIGH for 7-8 minutes, using the Mix ‘N Chop halfway through to break up the meat. Drain the meat and add the Bolognese Meal Starter and ½ cup (125 mL) of water. Replace lid and microwave for an additional 2 minutes.

Stovetop: Preheat a 12" Nonstick Skillet for 3 minutes over medium heat and add the ground beef. Cook for 5-8 minutes or until fully cooked through, using the Mix' N Chop to break up the meat. Add the Bolognese Meal Starter and ½ cup (125 mL) of water and simmer for 2-3 minutes over medium-low heat.

Slow Cooker: Add the ground beef and Bolognese Meal Starter to the Rockcrok® Dutch Oven or the Rockcrok® Everyday Pan. Transfer the Rockcrok® into the Rockcrok® Slow Cooker Stand and cook for 2 hours on HIGH (or 4 hours on LOW), breaking up the meat with the Mix ‘N Chop halfway through.
