My crockpot / slow cooker love affair is in full swing and I seriously can’t get enough of it! When I first started using my slow cooker I noticed that my sauces were still really watery and I really like a nice thick consistency so if you’re having the same problem here’s a little tip; 30 minutes before you want to serve up turn your slow cooker up to high and remove the lid, this should help thicken the sauce up quite nicely 🙂 Anyway, here’s my latest slow cooker creation:
- 500g minced beef
- 3 cloves of garlic grated
- 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
- 1 carton of pasata
- 1 tbsp of tomato puree
- 1 tbsp lea and perrins worcestershire sauce
- 1 red pepper chopped into strips
- 1 tin of drained kidney beans
- 2 tsp of chili and cacao nibs
- 1 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp cinnamon
Doesn’t get easier than this; put everything in your slow cooker, give it a stir and cook on high for 4 – 5 hours.
I served this with some baked sweet potatoes but it would be just as tasty with cauliflower rice, quinoa or wholegrain rice.
