Slow cooked lamb with red wine gravy just falls off the bone. Perfect for Sunday dinner. Serve with your choice of veg and roast potatoes.
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.

We live in Edinburgh, a city with many great pubs, but my husband maintains that the best steak and ale pie in the city can be found in our own kitchen! Tender chunks of meat and vegetables, savoury gravy, flaky crust...hungry yet? The steak is cooked in the slow cooker so it's really tender but the pie itself is finished in the oven.
Delicious tender diced lamb cooked in the slow cooker with onions, herbs and rich tomato. Nice served with pasta shells or macaroni.
