Our slow cooker has been used for whole joints of meat, chicken pieces and many stew-type meals... here are a few meat joints that we have slow-cooker-cooked.
|This was a beef silverside joint, cooked with small potatoes in their skins.|
|Gammon in slow cooker, heat on low, ready to be cooked|
|Gammon resting, under foil, prior to carving|
|Liquid from the cooked gammon - nothing extra has been added to the slow cooker|
|Gammon fat being removed from cooked joint|
|Gammon fat - now crackling!|
|Duck legs prepared for cooking - skin pierced and seasoned...|
|...cooked duck legs some hours later.|
|The duck meat comes away from the bone easily.|
|Skin being crisped up in frying pan.|
As we said at the start of this post, this is just a few of the meats we've cooked in the slow cooker - we use it for all sorts and have blogged other recipes like meatloaf, stew, devilled chicken, chilli and minced beef surprise. The slow cooker is a great tool for loads of versatile and easy to make meals. We love ours even though it's nothing fancy - was from Argos, is a 3.5l capacity and was on offer at under £10... what a bargain!
