    Chicken & Sweet Corn Risotto

    500g chicken breast (cubed)
    Can creamed corn
    Small can corn kernals
    2 cups of aborio rice
    2 cups chicken stock
    Packet of creamy chicken and vegies soup (made up in 1 1/2 cups of water)
    Salt and Pepper to taste

    (I think that was it?!)

    Add it all into the slow cooker.
    Cook on High/Fast (my slowcooker was on 2 setting) until chicken and rice are cooked through.
    You'll need to regularly check the risotto to keep adding more water as its cooking.

    1 tin of condensed tomato soup
    1 large onion

    1-1.5kg chicken (drumsticks, wings, any)
    As many vegies as you like, chopped.
    Any extras you like, garlic, ginger, herbs, spices, etc

    Chuck in vegies and extras, chicken then soup. Cook for 3-4 hrs on high or ideally 6-8 hrs on low. That's it!! Easy Peasy!

    My DD2 who's almost 10mths absolutely loves it as it goes so soft and is easily mashed.

    1.5 kg stewing beef ( I used gravy beef)
    175g lean salt pork or thick cut rindless streaky bacon (I used smoked speck - god I love that stuff
    3 Tbsp butter
    350g baby onions (I just used regular onions and quartered them)
    350 grams small button mushrooms
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1 carrot, finely chopped
    3 garlic gloves, finely chopped
    3 tbsp plain flour
    3 tbsp cornflour mixed with water (I found I needed this to thicken it up using the slow cooker)
    750ml (one full bottle) of red wine, preferably bergundy (I used a Beaujolias, which is a little lighter then a true burgundy wine)
    1 1/2 tbsp tomato puree
    bouquet garni (3 stalks parsely, 1 stalk thyme, 1 bay leaf all tied together with a peice of string)
    3 cups beef stock
    1 tbsp fresh parsely
    salt and freshing ground pepper

    1. cut the beef into 5cm peices and dice the speck/salt pork or cut the bacon into thin strips
    2. Cook the pork or bacon over a medium heat until golden brown then remove with a slotted spoon and drain (once drained transfer to the slow cooker - after you have added the beef). Pour off all but 2 tbsp of the fat from the pan.
    3. Increase the heat to medium high and brown the beef - until all sides are well browned (but dont overcook them). Transfer the beef to the slow cooker (but don't turn it on yet)
    4. Melt 1/3 of the butter over a medium heat, add the baby onions and cook, stirring frequently, until evenly golden. Transfer to the slow cooker.
    5. In the same pan, melt half of the remaining butter over a medium heat. Add the mushrooms and sautee, stirring frequently until golden. Transfer to the slow cooker.
    6. Melt the remaining butter in the pan. Add the chopped onion, carrot and garlic and cook over a medium heat for 3-4 minutes until just softened, stirring frequently. Sprinkle over the plain flour and cook for 2 minutes, then add the wine, tomato puree, and bouquet garni. Bring to the boil, scraping the base of the pan.
    7. Transfer everything from the pan into the slow cooker.
    8. Set the slow cooker to low and wait (for me it took about 9-10 hours - I was keen to get the meat really soft. I also read in my manual that for a dish that generally takes 3 hours simmering in a saucepan - which this particular dish does - that you can cook it for up to 12 hours)
    9. During the last hour add cornflour mixed with water to thicken it up if required.

    edit: I found that leaving it overnight in the fridge prior to eating worked best. It helped turn it into a rich gravy sauce. Whereas during cooking it still had a very winey flavour and was a bit thinner.

    Pat the chook dry, rub the soup mix into the chicken all over to give it colour.
    Stick one whole unpeeled lemon in it's bum (poke some holes in the lemon with a fork to let the aroma out). This is optional - still tastes great without it we just like it.
    Cut the remaining lemon into quarters and place in bottom of SC. Place chooky on top and cook for about 6 hours on low.

    Easy as, even DH can do this. We've also used oranges for something different

    Beef Stroganoff

    500g chuck steak cubed
    1 onion roughly diced
    1 satchet beef strog flavour mix (Maggi, McCormicks, whatever)
    1 tin tomatoes
    3/4 tub sour cream

    Put everything into SC except sour cream. Cook for 6 hours on low.
    1/2 hour before serving stir in sour cream to taste
    Serve with pasta or rice

I added a bit more water to help cover the veges. Cooked it for about 7 hours and it was delicious!

    Lemon, Garlic & Rosemary Chicken

    Under the skin of the breast of the chook place a mixture of rosemary (I used dried herbs) and butter. Place some cloves of garlic and slices of lemon inside bird as well as around the cooker. Place an oven proof plate in base of cooker for bird to sit on... if it's raised it seems to work better. Put a splash of white wine and chicken stock in the cooker (and baste the chook). And then I left it to cook 10 hours (probably a bit too long, but I went shopping and needed to get it done early this morning).... regardless, the chicken tasted juicy and so tender. I don't think it's possible to burn anything in a slow cooker!

    PS. My slow cooker is the Avance Breville 5 litre Meal Maker - cost $59.95 at the Myer sale. And I think it was worth every cent!

    Cover and cook on low 4-5 hours or on high 2-2 /2 hours.

    I used mixed chicken pieces instead of just chicken wings. I caught DS1 stealing it off of DS2's plate when he wasn't looking! hehe

    Cut all the veges into large chunks and slice onion and garlic.

    Put the lot into slowcooker with the stock.

    Cook on low for up to 6 hours.

    Add cream and run stick blender through it until smooth (or you can transfer into regular blender). I just blend it up in the crock insert with the stick blender to save washing up

    Freezes well too

    Seafood Laksa

    250 g of green frozen prawns from the deli
    400 g of nile perch from the deli (i used this because its lower in price and wont break up in the dish)
    - you can add or subtract the amount you put in depending on how big you want the dish to be. I only used these two ingredients as DF doesnt really eat other seafoods

    veges- i just threw in whatever i had till i thought it was enough- it was:
    1 carrot
    1/8 cabbage
    1/2 green capsicum
    1 brocolli floret
    1 couliflower floret

    2 bottles of Valcom Laksa paste
    2 cans of home brand coconut cream
    1 cup of water
    1 1/2 cups of fish stock

    Throw it together and leave on high for 4 hours or low all day. Enjoy
