Go easy on yourself with loads of delicious slow cooker recipes for stews, casseroles, soups, desserts and more.
I love to come home to the smell of home cooked food but as I'm the only one that cooks in our house this is a rarity. That's why I love my slow cooker and this hearty winter dish is a favourite for all the family. Thick gravy and tender slow cooked beef ideally served with mashed potatoes, cabbage and some nice crusty bread to mop up. Great to prepare all the vegetables the night before especially if slow cooking.
Simple casserole to bung into the slow cooker for 8 hours on slow or 3/4 on high. Use chicken thighs or a mixture of chicken pieces.
The preparation for this lamb shanks in red wine dish is incredibly simple and you can sit back, relax and let the slow cooker do all the work! Serve with steamed potatoes, or mashed potatoes, and green vegetables of your choice. Absolutely scrumptious, enjoy.
A wonderful Italian neighbour showed me how to make this recipe after I commented on how good it made the neighbourhood smell when she had her windows open whilst she made it. Cacciatore refers to food prepared 'hunter-style,' with mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, various herbs and sometimes wine. I found adding cheese gave it something special, it also made it mine.
A favourite of mine is Indian food, so when my friend made this slow cooker butter chicken, we were head over heels! I don't think I've tasted a better Butter Chicken. This is great to put into the slow cooker in the morning and come home to a house that smells gorgeous. Serve with basmati rice and naan bread.
