Maggi Packet mixes in the slow cooker

How would I go about preparing the Maggi Sweet and Sour pork mix, in my slow cooker.

Some of their other mixes have slow cooker conversions, but this one does't seem to.

I usually just cut whatever liquid is required down by about two thirds then chuck it in. If it's looking too dry after a few hours, I'll pour a little boiling water in. Have taken to browning meat beforehand lately, really improves the flavour.

Browning the meat is the way to enhance the flavour, for sure. But I find it a pest, when I just want to get going out the door. A pkt of soup mix, is OK. I never care about what it is, just the oldest in the pantry will do. I just sprinkle it over the top and, probably put more rather than less water in. As I often put my pot on all night, I cannot have it going dry.
I like to post what I do, then its there for next time. Post what you do.

I have used the 'normal' recipe mixes in the crock pot for years without any hassle etc - thinking about it there is often more liquid at the end so maybe cutting it down by a tiny bit wouldn't do any harm!I just use the same mix/recipe as I would for in the oven and I've never noticed/had a problem with it.Good luck!
