Helpful hints

  • Look for reduced-sodium broth containing 500 milligrams sodium or less per 1 cup serving. Avoid low sodium broth that contains potassium chloride—it’s very high in potassium.
  • If desired, make gravy with pan broth.  In a small saucepan mix 1 tablespoon flour with small amount cold water to dissolve.  Turn heat to medium high and stir in broth from slow cooker. Continue stirring 3 to 4 minutes until gravy thickens.
