Right then, you discerning culinary lot
Its bloomin freezing out there. So by my reckoning its slow cooker season again. Who doesn’t love getting home from work to the smell of something delicious wafting from the kitchen? Mmmmmmmmm
I’m going to kick off with a beef goulash tomorrow. An old favourite, but I need some new recipes
So lets have your favourites then

Bubbling away just now is some diced lamb shoulder, sliced sweet potato(*), a fair amount of sliced and diced onion(**), a couple of quartered tomatoes, covered in chicken stock with some garlic, rosemary and thyme plus a skoosh of lemonPosted 4 years ago
* should be ordinary potatoes but I’m having to drop my blood glucose levels just now and and ordinary tatties are out
** well shallots actually because i didn’t have any onions and couldn’t be ar5ed going out to get some.maximusmountainMember
What do you want? I have 1400 recipes.
A good one is beef stew, use shin, ~1kg sweet potatoes, 2 red onions, parsnips, squash, enough rosmary to make you think “thats a bit much”, salt, pepper, ~500ml beef stock, 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce, 1tbsp of tom puree, leave for about 10 hours.
I have some fantastic curry ones, sweet and sour chicken, a chapter on chilli, breakfasts, coffees, jams etc.
Bacon jam is also a good favourite of mine even though it has only been done once, tastes lovely.Posted 4 years agobambooMember
I also find that the sauce comes out too thin, I’ll try using less stock next time, and maybe some corn flour
Do you all brown the meat off before you put it in? I never bother as it is too much effort before work to be doing that, I just lob it all in and leave on low.Posted 4 years agorobdixonMember
If you’re doing the gammon in coke, take it out, smoother it in black treacle then in the oven for 30 mins..
If you’re doing the gammon in coke, take it out, cut off most of the fatty rind, score what’s left into 1cm diamonds, smear it with colmans mustard, then smother it in black treacle, put cloves in on the join of every diamond then in the oven for 30 mins..Posted 4 years agoAnna BMember
Have just had slow cooked scallop thai green curry. I tend to put in whatever I have to hand. I thicken by cooking it with lid off on high for 30-40 mins. A load of veg, tin of chopped tomatoes, tin of beans, ketchup/tom paste, herbs, spices. Takes five minutes, ready for after work. Though in the next few weeks I am going to be doing rabbit in it, using http://www.rivercottage.net/recipes/rabbit-stew/ idea courtesy of a previous thread of mine 🙂

When I saw this, I popped down to Lidl. So now I’ve got cubed steak, potato, sweet potato, onions, garlic, chilli, tomato, mangetout, courgette and Brakspear bitter cooking. Hope I’ve not overdone the variety, though.
That’s tomorrow’s evening feed sorted.

This is a timely thread – I’m just looking for a slow cooker.
Any suggestions on which models or features I should look for?
We bought a cheap one from Morrisons. 3 settings, low, high, & keep warm.
I saw Tescos have one for £15, looked very similar to ours.Posted 4 years agoAnna BMember
Mine a Crockpot. When I dropped the lid earlier in the year, I rang the distributor and they sent me a new one for very little money. I started to give the guy on the phone the code for it, and he completed the number for me after the first few digits! I kind of like knowledge and service like that, so would buy again if I ever needed to.Posted 4 years agogrim168Member
