kerryanne1962 says: Have you tried the new packet mixes that have slowly been coming out in the supermarkets. You add the meat and some other ingredients but all the spices are in the mix and just put in the slow cooker and forget it till time has passed. My husband even enjoys using them and they are slowly getting a great variety out there. Reply

jennypf says: Corned Silverside (nothing better ona lazy winter Saturday night).

In the bottom of slow cooker place:
2 carrots cut into chunks
2 stickes of celery cut into chunks
Large onion quartered
about 6 black peppercorns
2 tablespoons of malt vinegar

Take silverside out of packet and dry.....
Place in slow cooker
Cover with water (hot or cold)

Place lid on and leave it (do not be tempted to take it off at all - it slows the cooking)

Cook for 8 hours.....

Serve with mashed potato and vegies..... Reply

ngaiostreet says: gingered corned beef.
1/1.5 kg corned silverside, 1/2 orange sliced, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 4/6 cloves,
4 cloves garlic peeled and squashed, 2/3 large bottle of ginger ale (could use whole bottle if wanted.
Turn slow cooker onto low. Rinse silverside and put in cooker. Add other ingredients. Cook about 8 hours. Serve with vegs and mustard sauce.

Often do it the usual way and add vegs after about 4 hrs. Can even add quartered chunks of cabbage an hour before. Edmonds microwave cookbook has good recipe for mustard sauce
don't throw away the cooking liquid, strain and it makes a good stock for veg. soup. Got more recipes if interested. Reply

Have posted a recipe for Roman Beef in the recipe section.
With any luck, we should have some field mushrooms soon and they are just the best for flavouring this dish.
I make as much as the slow cooker will take and freeze a lot of it. Just as yummy as fresh Reply

maria says: Most things you try in the slow cooker are a success. Any sort of casserole is just great. All the flavours mingle and you end up with a hearty, nutritious and delicious meal. Roast chicken is another one worth trying in the slow cooker......chicken just falls off the bone it is so tender.......never dries out, all the juices are still there. Reply

bushie says: Hi mummy,
I don't know how many people like Pea and Ham soup, I find it easy in winter.
Bacon bones or Hocks depends what you prefer. In your slow cooker add 1kg of Bacon bones,2 large onions diced,500gm bag of YELLOW split peas and enough water to cover,approx an inch or 25mms from top.
Set on auto or slow then let simply cook until the meat comes off the bones and peas have turned to a nice thick golden liquid. Don't forget to stir occasionally so that the soup doesn't stick to the bottom of your pot. I also add a few chunky chopped carrots but not to everyones taste.
My mother used to cook this on the old wood stove when we were young and now it is so much easier in a slow cooker. Serve with nice chunky pieces of bread.
Enjoy Reply

Yolanda says: Thanks for the tip on soaking the corned beef overnight, I did not realise thats how you get rid of the salt content. I will try this as I always found corned silverside rather salty. Cheers Reply

Yolanda says: Thanks Yankeedoodle, the fridge goes without saying. I have added a silverside to my shopping list and I will make this for my husband and I this week. I am sure he will thank you now. I also have a couple of good slow cooker reciepes which I will share tomorrow when I find them in my reciepe library. One is for a Lamb and canellini bean, and the other a beef Daube. Both just as delicious and so easy. At the moment I have no kitchen (due to renovating )so I am having to make do with the crock pot and an elcetric high sided pan which also has some of the same quailities as the crock. Kitchen not expected for another 6 months. Thats men for you. Reply

I cooked this in the slow cooker (on low) overnight and it turned out great. It proably only needed 6 hours rather than 8 and it was delicous with mashed potatoes.
Enjoy your cooker! Reply

Tiger Dave says: This is an old favourite casserole recipe that I used to cook in the oven and it always went down very well with my family.As I said I used to cook it in the oven but last year I won a slow cooker and now use it all the time for the most enjoyable meals.As a matter of fact as i write this I have lamb Shanks cooking for tonights dinner.For the casserole I use what I call stewing chops and as there are three of us (wife and son 21) I use two each,they do not cost a lot and are just right for this dish.In a fry pan add a small amount of oil and brown the chops and place in slow cooker.Then add a can of tomato soup (440g)I add half can of water to get all of the soup,then add whatever spices you want.then peel and dice one or two medium carrots a couple of celery sticks diced,two cups of frozen peas and onion,(I use either onion powder or flakes as we are not big onion eaters and this way you get the taste and not the pieces of onion .
Then peel a couple of medium potatoes and slices them as though you were going to make scollops and place the slices on top of your casserole mix,sprinkle with paprika and cook on low for about six hours,(you can put this on in the morning and it is right for the evening meal.Serve on a bed of rice or my favourite is a bed of Mash potato,I will be surprized if there are not empty plate all round.

Yolanda says: This is a fabulous reciepe from my library. One of my current favorites.
1kg lamb bite size pieces
2 rashers bacon chopped
2 chorizo sausages chopped large
1 large onion chopped
2 gloves garlic crushed
1 large carrot chopped large
11/2 cups each red wine & beef stock
1 tblsp tomatoe paste
2 sprigs each thyme & rosemary or 1tsp each dried

You can brown the meats and onions then I put everything into the crockpot except the cannellini beans which I add 30m before serving as they only need to be heated through.
serve with crusty bread or whipped potatoes.
most delicous,let me know your verdict. sooo easy and you will be popular.. Reply

sam88 says: My always works recipe is brown some onions and casserole beef and add chopped vegies like carrot, parsnips, aubergine etc when the slow cooker starts to look full I add a quarter bottle of red wine and 2 cups of beef stock - the real trick here is to go overboard with the herbs as for some reason they tend to loose there flavour in the slow cooker. A good handful of rosemary, 3 cloves of garlic and some thyme add the herbs you fancy, salt and pepper and about 2 hours before its ready add some sliced pepper. Do this towards the end otherwise it reduces to nothing.

says: I have just copied one fron New Zealand Beef & Lamb. Its called 'Rice Meatballs' and its cooked in a slow cooker. I love using the slow cooker. Also look for packet recipes in the supermarkets. Maggi make them. Also Pataks have a nice one out as well using Lamb Shanks. Alison and Simon Holst also have a Slow Cooker book out. So I hope thats helpful. Just a bit of research really. Reply

redbow says: All so if you have put too much salt in your casserol or when you are cooking your silver side add a potatoe as this absorbs alot of the salt.
With the slow cooker I can't use the packet mixes for the slow cooker so I make up my own using Garlic and Curry and Flavered stocks. Reply
