slow cooker Sunday

It is no secret that I love the book Slow Cooker, by Sally Wise - my number 1 absolute favourite cook book author.
I've made loads of the recipes from it - and reviewed a number of them here on the blog - everything I have made has been delicious!

So I'm sure it's no surprise to hear how excited I was to pop into the shops during the week to pick up this baby:


If I've spoken to you in the last few weeks, chances are you've had to put up with me banging on about the release of this , and Sally's other new book Sweet (more on that another day!). We wasted no time trying out our first recipe from Slow Cooker 2 - lamb korma.

ok - the colours are weird on this! food photos are tricky!

It was amazing. Lamb dishes are my favourite for the slow cooker, because the lamb at our butcher is divine - a few hours in the cooker and it just falls apart! We served it with some rice, coriander and some crushed peanuts (i like to have a crunch!).

There are quite a few indian kind of recipes in this book - we can't wait to try the rogan josh, beef vindaloo and butter chicken - the mexican beef is high on our list of must-trys too!

Because I'm so excited about this book, and because Canberra's weather is suddenly so very slow cooker friendly, I'm starting a new series on the blog - slow cooker Sunday (or slow cookerpalooza, if you will!).
Each Sunday I'll aim to post about what we've had in the slow cooker - and  I'd love to hear from you in the comments if you're slow cookering too!!

And just FYI, Slow Cooker 2 is on sale at the online ABC shop until May 30 - I think every house should have one, so get on it! =)

  1. That looks divine, and slow-cooked lamb is definitely my favourite too. My mum has just lent me her slow cooker (actually an original crock pot!!) and I'm looking forward to trying it out.

  2. That's brilliant!

    I don't have a slow cooker. Maybe one day when we get our better kitchen. In the meantime it's just slow cooked enamel pot food at our place.

    1. it is so easy Cam - I love it! You just chuck everything in together, mix it together and turn it on. I get my meat diced from the butcher, and often buy frozen chopped onion and bacon pieces, so there isn't really even any chopping!
