It s a treat in foul winter weather to come home in
the evening to the delicious aroma of a crockpot
meal you put on that morning.
Cooking personalities Simon and Dame Alison
Holst admit they didn t even have a slow cooker
until eight years ago, but now say they d never be
They ve just put out their third collection of
recipes for the handy kitchen gadget -- All-new
delicious slow cooker recipes -- with their first two,
put out in 2005 and 2007, selling 360,000 copies to
That s testament to the fact there are plenty of
other slow cooker devotees out there, Dame Ali-
son says. We re not the only ones.
As is standard for the 29 recipe books the pair
have worked on together, there are plenty of
handy cooking hints at the front.
A bonus for family budgets is that cheaper cuts
of meat, when cooked in a slow cooker, are often
more flavourful and tender than more expensive
cuts. The Holsts say they use the cheaper shoulder
cuts of lamb, pork and beef with great success.
Corned beef and brisket are excellent too.
Some of the recipes in the book call for all-day
cooking. Others are intended for starting just after
lunch, just before the children get home from
school or before parents get caught up in the end-
of-day toddler routine.
It s easy to prepare the food the night before,
refrigerate it in plastic bags or covered containers.
Then put it in the slow cooker in the morning and
turn it on.
This saves refrigerator space and means that
the slow cooker bowl is at room temperature -- not
chilled -- when you start cooking.
Here is an example of the more than 50 recipes
in the new slow cooker guide:
SAUSAGE MEATBALLS AND TOMATO
Simon's kids love spaghetti and meatballs, but
sometimes shaping meatballs can be a bit of a pain.
He started wondering if there might be an easier
way. What would happen, he asked himself, if you
just cut sausages into shorter lengths and added
them to a sauce? We're very pleased with the
results, plus it is definitely quicker and easier than
making conventional meatballs. Although our recipe
calls for Italian-style sausages, you can use any kind
For 4 servings:
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion, diced
2 sticks celery, diced
1 medium carrot, grated
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp dried basil
1G2 tsp dried oregano
2 x 400g cans diced tomatoes in juice
2 Tbsp tomato paste
500-600g Italian-style sausages
Heat the oil in a large frypan (or suitable slow
cooker insert) on your conventional stove top. Add
the onion, celery, carrot and garlic.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables
Coat the inside of the bowl of a medium slow
cooker with non-stick spray.
Transfer the softened vegetables to the slow
cooker (or put the insert into the slow cooker).
Add the herbs, salt, tomatoes and juice and the
tomato paste and stir to combine.
Cut the sausages into 2-3cm long pieces and
gently stir into the sauce in the slow cooker.
Cover, turn to LOW and cook for 7-8 hours.
Adjust the seasonings to taste and serve over
