- Share a home cook’s quick and easy slow-cooker dinner
- But hundreds across the internet mocked her over a picture of the ingredients
Thousands have praised a home cook after sharing the “easiest” two-ingredient meal yet, but not everyone is convinced.
The woman made her slow-cooked Silver Honey Mustard using only beef and a bowl of Chicken Tonight sauce.
To prepare the meal, the woman simply gathered the ingredients in the device and let them cook for eight hours before serving it with a side of mixed vegetables.
She called the dish her “honey and silver mustard jar” and seemed elated to start the trend when her post was made to a popular Facebook page.
More than 3,000 people liked and commented on the “recipe,” and a “busy person” promised to try it right away.
Another said, “I’m old school when it comes to the silver lining, but I’m going to give this one a try.”
One person making the dish confirmed: “This is the best combination ever!!”
The home cook posted a photo along with a cooking tip that showed a piece of meat and pot inside a slow cooker.
While many people praised the dish, others criticized the cook and her ‘method’.
One of them wrote: I do not eat the jar, and another said: Should we leave it in the jar?
A third wrote, “I feel you should tip it out of the jar—a sealed jar plus the heat won’t end well.”
Others seemed annoyed by the fact that no water or other ingredients were added to the slow cooker.
Others mocked her for her choice of words.
And they laughed, “I started a trend—this is Chicken Tonight, not Chanel.”
