Super-Slow Super Bowl Tips
There are so many crowd pleasing dishes that were just made for slow cooking, from stews and chili to
• If you’re entertaining a group, make it a “slow-cooking potluck”—guests can
transport, reheat and serve their dishes in the same pot they’re cooked in.
• Soups are a good pick for Super Bowl parties, and a hearty French onion soup
is a welcome warm-up for the February chill. For deep, rich flavor, add a little
Kikkoman Roasted Garlic Teriyaki to the onions when you caramelize them.
• Don’t forget to have some snacks and nibbles on hand to munch during
the action. Make plenty of spicy party nuts with Kikkoman Teriyaki
Marinade & Sauce—they’ll disappear fast!
• Use a small slow cooker to keep cheese dip or artichoke dip war m
throughout the game.
