Once cooked, scoop everything out of the crock pot and serve in a large casserole dish. You can also dump all the remaining drippings and juices from the crock pot into a sauce pan and bring to a slow boil on the stove top adding cornstarch to thicken. The amount of corn starch will depend on how much broth you have in the crock pot.
