    Slow cooker chilli con carne

    I want to make chilli con carne but instead of using beef mince I was thinking to use beef chunks to give it a nicer texture. I have seen recipes that use beef brisket and then it all pulls apart after cooking. I have bought beef shin which I have used in the past for casseroles and it gets...

    Choosing a Slow cooker

    Winter is approaching and I'm thinking of getting a slow cooker, but I have a few questions - For years I've done my stews & casseroles in either a heavy pan on the hob or a casserole dish in the oven. Does a slow cooker really have any advantages over this? I live on my own; what size would...

    Review West Bend slow cooker

    I picked this up several years ago. It works great as a griddle, slow cooker and best of all a warmer. It comes in 2 sizes. A 3 quart pan and a 6 quart pan. The pans can also be used on the stove or in the oven. They are non-stick pans. It is wonderful for roasts. I have cooked pork...

    Recipe Chicken Enchilada Slow Cooker Soup

    Since the weather is slightly cooler, it seems many are thinking about warmer, heavier dishes, and using slow cookers and the ovens again. I love chicken enchiladas, so this soup sounds good to me. I would serve it with warm corn tortillas...

    I bought a large piece of 'bolo' from Waitrose. Not a cut of beef I'd heard of before. The butcher said its sometimes called 'poor man's steak' and that its from the shoulder. He said it can be cut very thin and flash fried. I asked him if it would be good to slow cook it and he 'sort-of' said...

    I usually cook my chicken in a crock pot for a very, very long time. One reason I do this is that if you cook it for a long time, the bones break down and you can get more nutrients. It takes about 24hrs for the bones to really be crumbly to where you can eat the spine easily and even bite off...
