    This was the first thing we cooked in our new Can Cooler Jr. Easy, not "mushy" at all - will definitely do this one again.

    I made this dish lasts night for my family and it was a hit! This dish is super easy to make, easy clean up, and most importantly it was outstanding! The 2nd day leftovers were even better!

    CanCooker Fan Favorite Recipe

    Posted by Ralph E. Price on 16th May 2018

    I fixed this as my first meal in my new CanCooker, Jr., and it turned out to be delicious! The flavors of the different ingredients were enhanced by this cooking method and were not a mushy, watered-down mix of everything rolled into one. The carrots were more carrot-like, etc. The kielbasa's flavor was better than it has been for me with other cooking methods. I was apprehensive, at first, that so little liquid in the CanCooker would cause the food to scorch on the bottom of the can, but everything was moist and bursting with flavor and had no hint of scorching. I didn't have the rack to use this first time, but I definitely plan to get one. Thanks for a great product!
