This recipe does not brown first. I never brown them in my rissole recipes either 🙂

do you brown the rissoles first or just put them in the slow cooker uncooked ?

I followed this recipe to the letter but the rissoles broke up a bit & the gravy resembled savoury mince. Nobody complained & it tasted good but was a bit disappointed.

Parisian browning essence can be found with the food colorings in the cake making section of most supermarkets.

Tasted great. Even my 1.5 year old loved it. She ate most of hers and usually hardly eats anything!

I made these tonight, didn’t have stock powder so I used stock cubes crumbled and dissolved into the gravy. It was a little salty but with mashed potato it was really yummy. Didn’t use Parisian browning essence either! Next time I would double the gravy. 🙂

I added grated carrot and zucchini to the rissoles and instead of browning essence I added a splosh of soy and Worcestershire sauce to the gravy, very nice old fashioned food!

Thanks for the recipe, I added grated carrot and zucchini to mine and instead of browning essence I added a splosh of soy and Worcestershire sauce to the gravy, I cooked for about 2 hours on high and an hour on low, very tasty with veg

Its like a food colour. Used for making things look brown. Commonly used when making fruit cakes. It has no flavour.
