Can plain small red potatoes be cooked in a slow cooker?
I want to put 3 lbs of small red potatoes in a slow cooker with just olive oil. I don't know if this will work or if I need to put some water in also. How long would it take for them to cook?
Small red potatoes cook fast compared to other potato varieties. In the case that they were cooked whole but plain, they would just partially cook and would be very dry as well. If you want to cook 3 lbs of small red potatoes using a slow cooker, then you need to add some water.
Instead of water you could add 1 can (10 oz.) of your favorite condensed soup, cover, and cook on low for about 6 to 8 hours or until potatoes are tender.
