    I love my slow cooker!!!!

    I do a nice beef and ham casserole in it - onions, peppers, garlic, carrots all chopped with diced beef and a tin of ham diced up. Add a tin of tomatoes and some herbs and seasoning.

    Also curry is good, I fry onions, garlic, ginger and spices in fry light then add this with meat and a tin of tomatoes to the slow cooker. When it's cooked I add some FF natural yoghurt.

    Chicken casserole - chicken with carrot, onion, swede and veg stock.

    Basically any casserole recipe but with less liquid than the recipe calls for, one tin tomatoes doesn't look much but if you add extra liquid then you end up thickening it with flour and using extra syns!

    I really couldn't be without mine.

    I posted an Adobo chicken recipe in the recipe thread. I made it for buffet night and there wasn't any left! :D

    I also do lamb kleftiko (from SW site - but I bung it all in the slow cooker instead of following their directions).

    I did a creole chicken which was pretty good too:

    I used syn free sausages and cut up raw gammon steak and threw it all in together. Was really yummy! (I also omited the rice but you could have an EE day, of course!).

    I do alot of whole joints in mine. I bung in a whole piece of any meat, pork, beef,gammon even a lamb leg. I put a tiny amount of water in the bottom and seasoning for example if lamb then I put some rosemary, garlic and a tablespoon of mint sauce. around half an inch to an inch of water is plenty.

    I also find Joes sausages much softer and sausagey if done in the slow cooker.

    Gammon is particulary nice if cooked in the slow cooker and cooled and sliced thinly.

    As has been said before it's the liquid amount that takes a while to get right. If adapting normal recipes you def need less liquid as it dosent evaporate like it does in a conventional oven.
