Bought my first CrockPot today (half price in Tescos-bargain!)

I have no idea of what to cook in it.

What is fabulous and what is not.

Tis a bit American isn't it? I looked online and thought ick.

I fancy doing a chilli with proper beef ie not mince but other than that I have no idea.

You need dee, she has about 4grin]

My slow cooker standbyes (which I use every week

Routine is, chuck ingredients in at breakfast, leave on low, spoon out at teatime (5ish)

But my recipes are

Browned beef casserole meat, chopped mushrooms and red pepper, bottle ale, stock cube.

Or as above with stilton instead of ale.

Bolognese - brown mince, add with pack passata/chopped toms, worcester sauce, mushrooms, red pepper(gues which veg DH will eat...) stoick cube, half glass red wine

Whole chicken, squeeze lemon over and throw it in, add some thyme if you feel like it.

Whole chicken breast, chorizo, chopped toms, chick peas.

Chicken breast pieces browned in curry paste, tin coconut milk.

Chicken legs, green pesto, bit of water (like 100ml)

trick is to not use a lot of liquid and never lift the lid!

I bought a 3.5 lt one,I don't reckon I could get a whole chicken in there without a fight.

Everything needs a stock/water base then?

No, notv really, i put chicken in dry, the meat releases it's own stock so you only need a very small amount of liquid. Today I have beef in ale, half a bottle went in and it's very liquid, will have to thicken it up later.
