Thank you celtic-chick x

I don't follow a specific recipe, but basically it is as follows, with amounts to suit how many portions you want to make, or the size of your slow cooker you are using.

Lean braising/stewing steak/beef or a joint of brisket cut up into cubes, red onion, carrots, button mushrooms, garlic and a bouquet garni, put in the slow cooker, seasoned with salt and ground black pepper, then cover with equal quantities of beef stock and red wine.

I tend to cook it on high, then reduce to low or medium, when it looks almost cooked, which can vary depending on the meat.
Thanks Lynne. I can't wait to try it

Pudding rice, skimmed milk (HE-A), sweetener, slow cook for 4-5 hours on low. Ta da!

Sometimes I put raisins (synned) in it, it's nice with a muller light stirred through it too.

Quantities depend on the size of your slow cooker.
