Sous-Vide 101: How to Cook the Most Tender and Flavorful Meat You’ve Ever Tasted

I definitely agree that a crock-pot can be used and if you already have one and don't want to spend any money on a rice cooker and the performance is good enough stick with that!

Something that "perks up" the taste buds makes the whole dish taste better. Peppers (both from peppercorns and chile peppers) are the main spices which produce this effect, but the dish needn't be spicy-hot to benefit from peppers. Except in purposefully spicy dishes, just a touch of heat in the background won't taste spicy, just more "alive". When using dried peppers or other spices (usually powder), the flavor comes out best by cooking it in oil, or by dry-roasting on the stove before adding other ingredients. Fresh chile peppers can be added at different times in the cooking, depending upon the effect wanted.
