Slow Cooker 'Roast'

Other

I have recently been cooking pork fillet and beef in my slow cooker. The former with tiny bit of water and chopped apples (could probably use a dash of cider). And the beef either with a dash of water and some onion around it, or a beef bourginon packet mix. After several hours the meat just falls apart and is delicious. Doing beef today for family roast dinner, yeh i know it's Saturday but they can't make it tomorrow!

Hi lynibis I've not got a slow cooker. But i am thinking of getting one. Your pork fillet with Apple's and a dash of cider sounds very tasty. After reading what you cook in yours I am going to get one will have a look around. So one told me you can cook a whole chicken in a slow cooker. Could you cook a small joint of lamb in a slow cooker. I am just not sure what can be cooked in a slow cooker. I think that's why I've not got one. But i am going to get one. 💐💐

Hi Nicola, you can get one for quite a reasonable price, a good one for under £20. If you go over to deals and search, loads will come up. Most i have bought over the years have come with a little paper recipe booklet and there are loads of slow cooker cook books. You will be amazed what you can do in them. I do stews and pop dumplings in for last hour.

I often work until 6 or 7pm so do not feel like cooking when I get in, but I mostly don't start work until 10am or later so have time in the morning to get something started. Great for Bolognese sauce.

I have one. I'm about to enjoy pulled pork tonight, and may well throw my lamb shanks in it tomorrow.

They are great.

They really do make the meat very tender and yes, you can have pulled lamb, beef or pork, and chicken almost melts in stews/casseroles.
