Okay, okay I am a chef known for fancy food and international ingredients. But, I love plenty of good old American foods as well. Grits are great!
They have a wonderful texture and what goes better with "gravy" than grits? Grits are the perfect soaker-upper for sauces and gravies.
Grits-- a true Southern American comfort food.
- Cook Time
- Prep Time
8 cups chicken stock or water
2 cups grits
1/2 cup chopped parsley
1/2 cup chopped scallions
Extra virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
- Place the chicken stock in a large pot and bring to a boil. Add the grits and salt and pepper to taste.
- Lightly coat the slow cooker insert with olive oil (this helps keep the grits from sticking). Turn the slow cooker to high.
- Add the grits and stock to the insert and cook on high for 6 hours until thick and tender (texture should be sort of soft, but not too gritty).
- Turn machine to warm, stir in parsley and scallions and serve when ready. Adjust salt and pepper as needed.
Do not use quick cooking or instant grits.
