  • Add all ingredients to slow cooker.
  • Cook on low for 5hrs
  • If you wish to you could thicken with 1tbsp corn flour mixed with 1tbsp water and stirred through 10mins prior to serving but we didn’t feel it needed it with rice as a side dish to soak up the sauce 🙂
  • Delicious served with rice and side veg or even on burgers 🙂

  1. Hi Pauline. I note you’ve stipulated using a 5 litre SC for this recipe. Great! I feel quite frustrated when reading the recipes posted because no-one mentions the SIZE of the cooker. I have been using a 3.5 ltr with great success for recipes not really written for SCs. Can you suggest a way to work out if the 3.5 is ok/too small for your published recipes, please.
    Cheers, Lyn

    1. We used to always ask people to include slow cooker sizes but many did not do so. So on our new website it’s now a required field when submitting a new recipe.
      Likewise with our books, every book since the 2nd one onwards includes slow cooker size for every recipe.
      Generally speaking it’s fine to use 3.5L for any of our recipes that FIT. Naturally if they don’t fit the ingredients in they need to be scaled down.
      Changing the size just may change the cook times so I suggest when you try a new recipe note down your changes made so you always know for next time.
