Five summer slow cooker recipes
Your slow cooker isn't just for soups and stews. Here are five great things you can cook in it this summer – giving you more time to enjoy the sunshine
1. Beef brisket for pulled beef rolls
“Drain the liquid, shred the beef and then stuff into bread rolls – delicious!”
2. Vietnamese chicken curry
A low-calorie, light curry which is perfect for Fast Days. Add rice to turn it into a family friendly meal.
3. Summery Spanish potatoes
If you're putting together dishes for a tapas evening, this is one less thing you'll have to worry about. Bung it in the slow cooker and away you go.
4. Barbecue pork belly slices
Trying to squeeze everything on to the barbecue? Make this dish ahead of time – it only needs finishing off on the grill at the end.
5. Veggie Moroccan tagine
Fragrant with spices – serve this tagine up with fluffy couscous for an easy summer meat-free supper.
