Slow cooker recipes

Dust off the crock pot and get ready for delicious slow-cooked goodness. Slow cooking can really bring out the flavour in any dish and make the meat super tender. We’ve put together a collection of our favourite slow cooker recipes, perfect for a comforting winter meal.

Tips and tricks

 

Braising vs stewing

Braising and stewing are virtually the same, except with a braise the meat is partially submerged in liquid, and a stew, it's fully submerged. Also. with stews the ingredients, including the meat, are generally chopped smaller. 

Keep the lid tight 

If your lid is loose, cut a piece of baking paper to fit snuggly inside your dish, on top of the casserole. This will help retain moisture and stop your meat from drying out. 

Reduce the liquid 

Skim off natural fats and oils from the top of the dish during cooking if preferred or reduce the liquid down by simmering it in a saucepan on the stove before serving.

Best cuts for slow cooking

Economical cuts like pork shoulder are excellent in the slow-cooker, as they become tender the longer you cook them. 

Pork shoulder
Brisket or chuck steak
Lamb shanks
Chicken thighs or drumsticks

⏲️ Time

As a general rule 1 hour of simmering on the cooktop or oven equate to approximately 5-6 hours on low or 2-2.5 hour on high in a slow cooker


💧 Liquid

As there is little evaporation when cooking with a slow cooker, you need to reduce the amount of liquid. As a general rule reduce the liquid (such as stock, wine or water) by about half the original amount. A maximum of two cups of liquid will generally be enough for most slow cooker recipes, except soups!
