Can you guess I’m new to a slow cooker?
This is a good Family meal, enough for 5 adults and cooks itself if your out for the day.
Not going to use it all at once, then freeze it in batches.
1 Tbsp oil
1 1/2 onions, chopped
600g minced beef
1 1/2 (400g tins) chopped tomatoes
1 1/2 (400g tins) red kidney beans
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 Tbsp tomato puree
3 – 4 tsp chilli powder, depending on how you like it
1 beef stock cube, dissolved in hot water
salt and pepper
Heat the oil in a large pan, add the onions and cook for a few minutes until softened. Drain off excess oil and put onions into slow cooker.
Brown the mince in the same pan, in batches if necessary. Drain any excess fat off and add the mince to the onions in the slow cooker.
Add the remaining ingredients to the slow cooker and stir well. Season to taste.
Cover and cook on high for 3 hours, then auto for 5 hours or low for 6 – 7 hours.
