We use dry but you could use fresh if that's what you prefer, cooking time may be less though with fresh
We like the crunch so generally use raw greens but you can blanch/boil the kale/cabbage until it softens if you prefer
Honestly don't know why we haven't tried this before, amazing.
We used lactose free cream cheese and cream with 1/2 cup of Chilli Jam
This will definitely be on the backup list for a last minute dinner as the short cook time means it is something that can be put on after school if needed.
3-4 days in a firmly sealed container (we use a pyrex dish)
If there are still some left at this point we freeze in single serves
A perfect easy brunch/lunch/sunday night dinner.
We added bacon and mushrooms 🥚🥓🍄
Denise I would probably use 1 onion and and as much garlic as your family likes (my daughter would probably add a good tblspn of minced garlic/3 cloves)
We recently did this with drumsticks and minus the Garlic for a quick, easy FODMAP friendly meal.
Budget friendly as well for 9 (5 adult sized and 4 child size serves ) hit with all of the family.
This has been on our to try list since it was first posted.
Finally tonight we did and it was amazing, so easy and before we knew it we had a lovely thick garlic sauce that just needed prawns to be added.
Simple but oh so delicious!
Will definitely be doing again and may even double the sauce and try adding some squid rings as well next time.
Vegetable or Chicken stock, it depends what I have in pantry/freezer 🙂
I've never tried freezing this one Trish, not sure how the mushrooms would go.
You could dump bag the chicken, bacon, onion and garlic
We used chicken thigh cutlets instead of diced, so quick and easy both in prep and serving.
A definite winner, yum 🙂
A delicious alternative to traditional corned beef/silverside. The golden syrup really balanced with the salt from the corned meat.
We will definitely do this one again 🙂
Jan whilst they are high in mannitol and should be avoided during elimination phases they can be enjoyed once you have tested your tolerance levels, these can vary person to person.
Obviously if you can't tolerate them then this recipe isn't for you but others may have higher tolerance levels 🙂
The Tea Towel Trick www.slowcookercentral.com/the-tea-towel-trick/
helps prevent that 🙂
It is more moist when done as a boat compared to direct in slow cooker bowl (either lined or unlined)
When done direct in bowl I stir it a few times as it will go crunchy/burn on the edges
Definitely not gluggy though 🙂
John not sure on how much extra time but Mark below has done it x5.
I had to allow almost double time for the last regular batch I did as the tomatoes were extra juicy so that can play a part as well as how hot your slow cooker is.
Bekah I haven't used tinned tomatoes but I think it would have a stronger tomato taste and would take longer to reduce with the extra liquid
Thankyou for the idea, perfect for an easy weekend tea 🙂
We used a packet of Orgran Pancake mix and switched the apples for Cider Braised Pears
Served with extra pears, syrup, grilled speck and cream
Winner, winner BBQ Chicken dinner 🙂
It was sooooooo good my daughter requested it again within two days, Easy Budget BBQ Chicken, so easy she even put it on as well 🙂
This was lovely, they usually prefer creamy sauces but the pot was scraped clean.
I discovered we had no tomatoes so easily substituted a jar of passata and a handful of cherry tomatoes from the cupboard and fridge.
I also didn't brown/fry off anything.
Thanks for the recipe Katrina
Would it be the same amount of sugar if I use that instead of splenda?
Thanks Melinda 🙂
A hit with all, they actually wanted more but none left. Couldn't use kecap manis ( sweet soy sauce) so substituted coconut aminos with an extra 1/2 tblspn sugar.
No stupid questions Anne 🙂
If you just want extra heat I would leave the other ingredients as is, if you want a bigger batch I would triple everything.
Cooking time can vary with different slow cookers but assuming you are using the same slow cooker I would probably allow an extra hour or two.
I also find the time it takes to reduce to a thick consistency varies with how juicy my tomatoes are 🙂
Sure could Catherine. I just had some that I froze for lunches and it was great 🙂
Has become a firm favourite and regular that I try and have at least 2 dump bags for it in the freezer 🙂
Due to allergies we switch the mustard for a 1/4-1/2 tspn of mustard powder and use Coconut Aminos sauce instead of Soy.
We also alter the method a little instead of tossing the steak in the flour and then in the sugar and mustard we add them to the sauce mix, so my daughter can put it on without me having to clean the whole kitchen 🙂
We also tried it as a dump bag and it was just as good as the first time we had it.
Place all ingredients in bag except the flour and freeze.
Add a tblspn of cornflour with some water when putting it on and stir through.
Thanks Paulene 🙂
Michelle I'm not sure about 10hrs. I generally use my Crockpot 3.5L for this as it cooks slower but even then I think 8/8.5hrs might be it's limit.
Depending on your slow cooker it could even take less time.
Thankyou Ron 🙂
My daughter has now done the leek, garlic and stock as dump bags in the freezer so there is no excuse for not being able to do them 🙂
You certainly can do low, I would go about 7hrs low depending on your slow cooker.
I find with the cornflour mixed into the coconut cream it doesn't seperate.
Mmmmm, mmmmm 🙂
We used garlic butter and left out the sauce and herbs due to allergies.
Bread was nice and crispy, cheese gooey and all cooking away while I finished getting tea on and a load of washing 🙂
This may well become a regular on weekends 🙂
Thanks for the idea Simon
A light an easy alternative to mash potatoes, will be a regular here 🙂
I have just showed these to my daughter and she is over the moon 🙂
Mark I really must do it in larger batches as well instead of making it what seems every week, although I don't think it would last any longer 🙂
Sure Lindsay 🙂
Depending on how ripe/what type of pears you have there may be no need to alter time though.
Ours today were on the verge of been chucked so only took just over an hour.
June I use any variety of pear we happen to have available, either in the fruit basket or in store making it something we can enjoy year round.
I haven't really noticed a difference between varieties either.
I had a tomato and onion that needed using so I did a quick search of the website and found this Not Roast Chicken (+ Ahh-mazing Gravy).
I made a slight change to the gravy, 30mins before serving I transferred the chicken to a warm (about 100°c) oven after removing the onion and tomato from the chicken.
Then I broke the onion and tomato up in the juices that were in the slow cooker bowl, whisked in 1/4 cup of lactose free cream combined with 2 tblspns of cornflour.
I switched the sc to high for 30mins with the lid slightly ajar.
Tasted as ahh-mazing as it sounds and so quick and easy, thanks Simon 💜
Toots we do this at least once a month and have never found it to be dry.
As all slow cookers cook differently you may need to adjust the time for yours as it may cook at a higher temperature.
The vegetables usually cook down into the sauce and yes we have added coleslaw before as well 🙂
Tried this for the first time tonight, I did substitute the soy sauce with coconut aminos sauce and omit the hoisin sauce due to allergies.
Both girls commented "we have had this before", yes from the local Chinese restaurant, think that is a win 🙂
Very easy to make and serve.
We used a whole piece and it was so tender and sticky, Yum!
Will definitely have again 🙂
We used chicken drumsticks instead and replaced the chilli flakes with a chopped fresh chilli.
Quick 2min prep 🙂
We were later home than planned so they were on low for around 6 hrs and were still moist and tender. Definitely on the do again list 🙂
So easy to do and an amazing creamy, chilli and garlic sauce. It has already been requested again and they are still eating 🙂
PS we did a gluten and lactose free version.
With the perfect amount of spicy kick, and easy prep this is a winner 🙂
Sorry for the late reply Kylie, I just saw your question.
No I don't use a tea towel as we like plenty of sauce 🙂
This is a winner, Yum!
A quick and easy option works well with wings and drumsticks as well, we used a Coconut Amino sauce in place of soy due to allergies and couldn't tell the difference.
I put everything in raw including the chicken and found it was all cooked evenly.
You could brown the chicken if you wish I just found it quicker and easier this way, cooking time may be slightly less if you do and obviously all slow cookers are different as well
Thankyou Denise 🙂
An easy, healthy meal that was also easily made lactose free and loved by all.
This even got a HUGE DELICIOUS!
We have had many versions (minus ingredients due to allergies) of Clacker Chicken before but tonight we had the original recipe using a soy sauce replacement and it was fantastic. Definitely doing it more often now as it is so easy and delicious 🙂
If you read the Notes at the bottom of the recipe Sarah you will see it states "Can be #lowFODMAP by omitting garlic".
I do this often for my nephew 🙂
Going on google search it's been discontinued and was a really slow low cook, so would probably be a long time. If I was doing on low I would allow about 4-5hrs in my Crockpot.
