A slow cooker can be a busy cook's best friend. Instead of spending time over the stove and tending to your food, a slow cooker lets you put all of the meal's ingredients together and come back hours later to a fully-cooked dinner. Minced meat is no exception. Although it is traditionally browned in a skillet, it can be easily and almost effortlessly made in a slow cooker.
