Recipe Tips

  • The cream can be left out of this recipe if you are trying to keep this dish as healthy as possible. However, the cream really does help add a ton of depth and flavor to this dish.
  • If the sauce is still a little too runny for your liking, then add some more cornstarch. Just make sure you mix it with some water before adding it to the slow cooker.
  • Heavy cream is also known as whipping cream in the United Kingdom or thickened cream in Australia.
