Expert Tips

Use 1/2 teaspoon of purchased chopped garlic (from a jar) in place of the garlic cloves. Store the opened jar of garlic in the refrigerator.

Refrigerate slow-cooked meat immediately after serving. Transfer leftovers to an airtight food storage container and chill as quickly as possible.
