just had to tell you all

#1
Last night we had a lamb roast dinner, but instead of putting meat in oven - I put it in my slow cooker with a leek , 3 carrots, a bit of chicken stock, and put it on for 3 hours on high........
OMG :eek::eek:... it was blooming delish or wot !!!!!!!
I wizzed the veg in the stock added a bit of gravy granules and that was OMG aswell. shall be certainly doing that again.
It was the best bit of lamb we had in ages.
I know I didnt brown the meat or trim the fat. but it was just so nice to do something different .

Sounds yumm, shame I'm not a lamb fan but will try it with either chicken or pork as I'd never thought of doing a whole joint in the slow cooker. Will get OH to get mine down and start embracing it as it should be

Can you cook a whole chicken in the slow cooker - or should I brown it first, have only done bolognase, chilli, stew so far - and they all have loads of liquid - any advice?

never cooked a whole chicken in mine , but as for the liquid - I think it is because we put the lid on, thus creating steam and condensation on the lid which falls back into stew/soup if you take the lid of it would either -
a) lose a lot of heat and would take longer to cook and
B)it would eventually lose all the liquid as .it would evaporate
I cooked a half shoulder of lamb in mine . got it from Asda mmmmm

I've never done a whole joint in the slow cooker - I am too scared to try it. It's nice to hear it's been successful for you...I might just give it a go! :)

I often put a whole chicken in there. Nothing better than a whole chicken with pots and veg, a little stock. Go out for the day, and when you get back you have a full roast dinner waiting. Lovely Jubbly. CAreful getting the chicken out though cos it will fall apart.
