A couple of times I added potatoes in the stew and cooked it in the sc, the potatoes came out … leathery! What am I doing wrong? I experimented with more or less liquid but the potatoes came out the same

When you say “heat oil in a pot and add the beef” do you mean the slow cooker pot or a separate saucepan?

There’s only me and my daughter would it work the same if I halved all the ingredients ? And would I need to cook for same length of time ?
