Lamb shoulder joint cooked in the slow cooker with red wine and lamb stock to make a delicious gravy. I have served this with roast pumpkin, cauliflower and carrots but any veg would be nice and some Yorkshire puds.

Tender pork chops cooked in the slow cooker with onions, apple and cider, loosely based on the classic Normandy Pork. Serve with creamy mash to soak up the juices.

Delicious tender beef cooked in the slow cooker with beer, shallots, bacon and mushrooms. The beer makes a lovely gravy without tasting overly strong of beer. This is quite a meaty dish so would also be nice with potatoes and carrots added. I serve this with crusty French bread to mop up the juices. Hearty and warming to come home to. Cooks in 5 hours in slow cooker, however it would not hurt it to be cooked all day.

For those who love fall-from-the-bone lamb. Burgundy wine adds a special touch to the sauce that's served alongside.
