Whole family liked it. Used 750g of casserole beef. Used 4 whole spring onions (white and green part). Added a leek and a grated zucchini. Took lid off for final 2 hours to thicken up (due to less meat). Added gravy at end as suggested. Good on rolls with coleslaw and also with mashed potatoes and peas. Will use leftovers for pies.

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 🙂

The beef was very dry until you added the gravy. Perhaps the cooking time is too long? I would think 8 hours would be enough… If putting in rolls, I would omit the vegetables and add coleslaw for flavour. Other than that, it was nice.
