ive made curry ,chilli, and assorted stews
but my favourite is a joint of brisket, just a bit of water and a couple of oxos to make stock for the gravy, bloody gorgeous

I've had a slow cooker for over 20 years and I wouldn't be without it, liver casserole is to die for, any stew tastes better for cooking in it and you can buy the cheapest cut of meat and after 6 hours in a slow cooker it tastes like a premium joint. Meat falls apart, veg is tender and juicy.
Grains and pulses need soaking and boiling first though as they a lot longer than veg which takes longer than meat, to cook.

In all fairness, everything you cook is to die for!

i just put half a cup in, this makes the base for the best gravy you will ever taste, recommend the butchers in the cherry tree rather than the big chains. low setting and leave it on over night.
