I would think that’s fine, just keep them fine cut etc for the same “hidden” result but that time should be plenty to cook them through so long as the harder carrot is kept fine cut

You can’t just put the mince and sliced veggies in the slow cooker with the sauce etc to cook for 4-6hrs? Do you have to cook them first?

Awesome, easy, did this with a smaller amount of mince so reduced quantities of everything. Left out the sugar, used mixed herbs in place of spaghetti bolognese seasoning. Will be a regular recipe.
