    Made this tonight for tea which was a hit and smelt amazing while cooking. I did double the curry powder though for extra flavour.

  2. Nice easy recipe. The sauce texture is fantastic. Next time I will need to use a better peanut butter to get a stronger flavour.
    I added julienne carrot (2 1/2 hours cooking time) and capsicum (1 hour cooking time) for added veggies.
    This will become a regular in our house.

  3. Tried this for dinner, i did it on high for 2.5 hours and was perfect. Had heaps of leftover sauce so will freeze it until i have leftover veggies that need using and toss it together. Great easy recipe!

  4. This is a very easy recipe that was absolutely delicious. A definite ‘doing that one again’. I was entirely faithful to the recipe (normally I like to add things and experiment) except adding 1/2 teaspoon of salt. I really enjoyed the taste, but would love any tips on boosting the peanut effect as I love strong flavors (and in no way is that a knock on this recipe). Another ‘winner winner Paulene’s dinner’ (cos I couldn’t think of an appropriate word to rhyme with lunch).

  5. Dish added to the “Repeat Menu”!!! I added bacon and garlic to the original ingredients and then steamed mixed veg an hour from the end. Served with rice

  6. Made this for dinner tonight – used 500 grams tenderloin so 1/2 the rest of the ingredients and cooked for a little less time. Even Mr “I’m not eating anything cooked on the slow cooker” enjoyed it and has asked for it again. Thank you.

  7. Made this for dinner tonight using chicken tenderloins (500 grams) so halved the other ingredients and shortened the cooking time a little. Mr “I’m not eating anything cooked in the slow cooker” enjoyed it and asked for it again. Thank you.
