    I always saute the meat, spices and veggies and before putting them up to slow cooker (except the veggies – just set them aside). I just add he veggies on the last 15 or 30 minutes. I just let the slow cooker make the final step. tip: put the hard veggies like potatoes, carrots etc., 30 minutes before it ends. But leafy veggies like cabbage, string beans etc should be added 10-15 mins before it ends.
