Step one: Insert crock pot liner
Step two: Put ingredients in the liner
Step Three: Enjoy dinner!
Step four: Empty food contents
Step five: Tie the liner and throw away
(note that I did not empty the contents... That's because I tried to make chicken noodle soup, but I put the egg noodles in at the beginning. They essentially turned to mush. Nasty mush. It was bad. So I threw it out.)
Step six: quickly wipe out the crock pot and enjoy an easy clean up.
