I am trying to cook lots more from scratch. We eat chicken fairly often so I would love some simple slow cooker dishes based on beef, pork, lamb, sausages etc

I do neck of lamb fillet in chunks with onions, carrots, fresh rosemary,a generous glass of red wine or two and a lamb stock cube - definitely no water and cook till tender then add a couple of handfuls of pearl barley for 40 mins or so till cooked.
If too think add a tiny bit of water at the end.
We have it with crusty French bread and butter or cabbage and buttery mash .

I do a basic beef stew using diced beef, potatoes and carrots. Flour and fry off the beef, Add some Worcestershire sauce and red wine but not too much liquid. Slow cook for 5 hours.

I found a great recipe for pork shoulder which is a really cheap cut of pork. The long cooking time makes it insanely tender.

1.75kg pork loin OR shoulder, skinless
1 tbs oil
2 tsp EACH paprika, thyme
1 tsp EACH garlic powder, onion powder
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper , optional
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp salt

1/3 cup honey
Large knob of butter ,
3 cloves garlic , minced
1 tbs cider vinegar

3 tsp cornflour.mixed with splash of water

Sear the pork in oil on the hob over a very high heat to brown. Stir in all the herbs and spices, and fry for a minute or two.

Tip all this lot into the slow cooker and add the ingredients of the Honey Butter sauce.

Leave it in the slow cooker on low setting for 7 or 8 hours. At the end, remove the pork. Taste and thicken the sauce - if you don't like it or find it too strong, mix the sauce with some ordinary pork gravy granules and hot water

Serve with mash and green veg eg kale

Yes in the slow cooker
I do it for 4-6 hours on high but can be left as long as needed
