Slow Cooker Beef Stew III

Reviewed: May 30, 2006
I cooked this one last weekend just after I got home from working nights. I only had lamb stew meat instead of beef so I chucked that in and used salt reduced vegetable stock instead of water for more flavour. I also added a beef stock cube (I forgot that I put in lamb not beef but the end result was still good). Added a decent amount of garlic and italian herb mix (the Gourmet Garden stuff in tubes is great - no chopping!). I also added some parsnips just for the heck of it. I think it cooked for around six hours and it was done to our satisfaction. I think my slow cooker must cook faster than US brands because if I had put this brew on overnight and the next day I think it would have been a bit overcooked. As it was, after six hours on low, it was great. This was my first attempt at a home made soup and I was pretty happy with it. It was a quick and easy meal to prepare and the best thing was it cooked while I was asleep so I didn't have to do anything when I got up. Except for some toast!

Red Wine Flavored Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2005
I have to say I will never go back to cooking beef roasts in the oven again after using this recipe. I had a beef roast which I'd marinated in red wine, pepper and crushed garlic so I thought I would give this recipe a try. Our slow-cooker has number settings instead of low or high (it is very old). I guessed around 3-4 since the dial goes to 12. With the size roast I had, it only took around 4hrs to cook on this setting to the well done mark. I added a couple of cloves of garlic and a few sprigs of rosemary as suggested by someone else. I also replaced the water with wine and doubled the dry onion soup mix (although the latter was by accident). It still turned out great even with the extra soup mix. Served with honey sesame baby carrots, peas, corn on the cob and potato bake with red wine gravy. No plate had a scrap of food remaining on it and the leftover meat has made great sandwiches today. Thanks Katie for a great recipe which I will definitely be using again.

Simple 'N' Delicious Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2005
I used a Irish Cream coffee brew to make it and it tastes fantastic. Add to that a mild chocolate frosting laced with Baileys (in my case heavily laced) and it's a yummy combination. Definitely a hit with everyone at home.
