(If you're a rush, you can just put the raw ingredients into the slow cooker, but the taste is better if you brown off the ingredients first.)

Didn't have any chilli flakes so used chilli powder instead but was still really tasty. I cooked it on low but the potato was a bit mushy so would recommend cooking on high for 4 hours. - 24 Feb 2014


Really enjoyed this. Flavour was good even though I did not have time to brown off the meat. I used a whole tin of tomatoes. Next time I may halve the chilli flakes as it was a little too much for me. Will definitely make again. - 17 Feb 2014
