Just made the Paprika goulash from AWT's Slow Cooking. LOVED it. The kids wolfed it down too. It's my first every try in the a slow cooker and the first stew I have ever made that was actually delicious.
Does anyone have any other suggestions for recipes? Any favourites from the Slow Cooking booking?
Also should I always be halving the liquid added? I'm a bit confused. The goulash was thin so I had to whisk in some butter and flour to thicken it. Should I have started off with less liquid?
I never add liquid as it makes its own while it's cooking. If I need to dissolve a stock cube i do it in an inch of boiling water in a mug.
I do whole gammon, whole chicken, chicken thighs, lemon chicken, rice pudding, sausage casserole, beef casserole, chicken casserole.
I never bother browning meat first but while I am preparing the food I pour boiling water into the SC to heat it up quickly, then pour away once I am ready to add the food. Another trick my mum told me recently is to put a folded up tea towel over the lid to speed things up if you are starving and wanting your dinner quick!
