Slowcooker! The cooker that slowly cooks!

I only just got one of these and want some nice delicious meals (ideally veggie) to cook. So far I’ve done an absolutely filthy (in a good way) buffalo mac & cheese, and a sweet potato and peanut butter stew which was also brilliant.

The less prep the better really as I AM very lazy

What bounce u cookin slowly hun?

Rice pudding.

It. Is. Amazing.

Got a ridiculously massive one as a hand-me-down, it’s the size of an oil barrel.

Never use it.

If I were to use it, I’d do ribs or ham or curry

Pork shoulder. Marinade in orange juice overnight, put jerk seasoning on, slow cook on low for about 8 hours.

The vegetarian version is just slow cooked orange juice.

I asked Wor Lass for one of these for my birthday but she said I was being too boring and got me a coffee grinder instead.

This is probably my favourite slow cooker thing:

I baked some beans yesterday.

  • 250g Dried Haricot Beans (soaked overnight)
  • 100g Dried Kidney Beans (soaked overnight)
  • 2* Tinned tomatoes
  • Dark Brown Sugar
  • Thyme
  • Liquid Smoke
  • Maple Syrup
  • Chipotle
  • Salt
  • Onion (chopped)
  • Garlic salt
  • Smoked Bacon Lardons
  • Chopped Chorizo

Not all of these ingredients are essential.

Put it in the pot add a couple of tins woth of water and turn the pot on. Check it’s not drying out from time to time.

EDIT: I have some for my lunch
EDIT : This would be fine without the meat.
EDIT : I like pulses.


how long did these baked beans take?

Not sure. I left them all day. 8ish - 5.30ish

You’ve made warno look like an amateur.

i’ve been making soups
assumed you could make a soup of basically anything and it’d be good but i made a brussels sprouts one and it was merely weird


Sometimes I’ll do this in the oven (or fast cooker as I’m now calling it) to a similar recipe and it’s awesome. Think we’ve got a slow cooker somewhere, might get it down for some winter pulse stewing action.

this post has nothing to do with slow cookers though


Why would you bother though when you can have an excellent baked potato with crispy skin, from the oven in an hour and 15?

I feel your pain, I made a soup out of a bunch of greens I had lying about (incl brussos) and it was pretty much hideous, and I pride myself on my souping skills. Think I might still have some in the freezer, I refer to it as my grey soup.

Shit that sounds OUTSTANDING

Honestly vegetarian chill is the fucking best in a slow cooker.

Loadsa beans - kidney, pinto, black, chickpeas etc. Loads of veg - sweet potato, red onion, spinach, corn. Add some chillies, garlic, other spices, few tins of tomatoes and veg stock to cover everything. Tea for a week and really cheap.
