    Default What's your favourite slow cooker recipe?

    I need to do a slow cooker once a week on Mondays as it is the day I have a meeting after work, so won't have time to cook a meal when I get home.

    What's your fave slow cooker meal? It will have to be a recipe that will be ok on low for 9 or 10 hours.

    Thanks

    beef and vegie soup
    minestrone soup
    beef and red wine casserole (I use the packet mix)
    silverside/beef roast
    chicken soup
    curried sausages (although I boil my snags and remove skin before popping in the slow cooker)

    I find the maggi packet mixes are really good for having different flavours. They have a whole line of slower cooker packets but i use the normal ones too.

    I just cooked beef strogg. It was so good.
    1kg beef
    1 onion
    2 cloves garlic
    200g mushrooms
    2 cups of beef stock
    1tbs tomato paste

    Add all ingredients, put on high for 4-5hrs, or low for 6-7hrs.

    Just before serving add 1/2cup sour cream
    1tbs dijon mustard
    2tsp cornflour, heat through then serve.

    Cook times are an estimate. I put it on high for 6hrs, but I'd say it would be in on low for a long time.

    My go to is chopped veg, chicken thighs and tinned tomatoes with loads of garlic and herbs and pepper. Yum!

    I too do it once a week on the busy day. My go to meal is usually a spag bol with a tin of lentils. I put the meat (turkey pork or beef) in frozen - keeps it going for that extra hour or so, just needs a good stir, I mix it up with potato masher before serving.

    I buy the McCormicks slow cooker packet for Mild Indian Beef Curry, but instead of doing it with the beef, I use it to make lamb shanks. It comes up amazing & DH loves it!

    But if I were making something in the slow cooker that I wouldn't be able to stir all day, I'd probably make a soup.
