After a busy weekend all I want is to sit down to a warm, home cooked meal. And as easy as it is to order in some takeaway, having a handy slow cooker in the kitchen saves money, big time.
While home baking has gone up in popularity, so too has cooking from scratch. Perfect for cuts of meat like beef or lamb shanks, or make your favourite roasts.
Just a few slow cooker recipes for some inspiration below, from BBCFood, perfect for warming up after a long weekend walk in the countryside.
Above we have Slow Cooker Coq au Vin, next Slow Cooker Beef Curry, and finally Slow Cooker Beef Brisket with Cannellini Bean Mash.
