SW friendly slow cooker recipe?



Silver Member
You can do a search on top right which will give u lots of threads.

I have my slow cookery on now and have put in:

Stewing steak (with all fat trimmed off)
Carrots, broccoli, peppers, sprouts - lots of veg really!
Seasoning and gravy (7 syns) and corn flour (2 syns)

You can do almost anything really :)

Do you put meat in already cooked or raw in a slow cooker? I've seen a recipe stated to just put it in raw which I thought was odd???

You put raw meat in and then let it slow cook.

The idea is that you can chuck all your ingredients into it and leave it on the low setting while you go out to work.

I put raw beef into mine along with veg at 8.30am. When I got home about 5ish I added some dumplings to cook for another hour or so. You can't really burn the food either which is good!! Lol

Don't be afraid to put frozen meat straight into it either, it still cooks well.
