    I don't see why that would make any difference if that is easier for you. Browning is intended to sear the meat a little which really makes it taste better. I can tell the difference when I do brown and don't.

    But I also classify myself as an incompetent cook (but a helluva baker), so what do I know?

    Sure. I do this all the time. Brown meats (and veggies if needed) the night before. Put it in the fridge. Cut up all the vegies. Assemble everything else. In the morning, put it all in the crock pot and go to work.

    I do. I can barely pour a cup of coffee at 5am, let alone brown meat and prep a slow cooker meal.

    I have a pork-lentil stew going right now, all prepped last night. Just make sure that the cold crock goes into a cold crock pot to reduce the risk of cracking.

    the first page of this post got me giggling with regards to what size crockpot is good for making soup for a family for 4 with leftovers. I make soup for just me in a 6qt crockpot several times per week and eat the whole thing that day...by myself. Gosh, if I were going to make soup for the whole family and have leftovers I'd need one of those big Nesco roasters lol!
