I recently purchased a slow cooker and recipe book so that I could prepare a wholesome cooked meal before going to work at 8.30am, so that it cooked slowly all day and be ready as soon as I walk in the door at 6.00pm. Most of the recipes in the book I bought with the slow cooker said to stir or add more ingrediants half way through. Really frustrating when slow cooks are promoted to provide minimal preparation and cook, slowly throughout the day to provide a homecooked meal whilst being out of the house all day busy working! Does anyone have any tips for recipes that can just cook away all day and not need stiring half way through? Regards.

Use any stew recipe you wish and switch on low if you are out for 8-10 hours (or more) or high if it is for 5-6 hours. No need to stir in between ( which would actually make the cooking process slower...)
You will have to explore a bit as slow cookers may vary. In my old slow cook cooker everything needed to be warm (ie not necessarily hot but definitely not cold) before I left if I wanted the meat to be ready in 5-6 hours but my new one seems to cook at a higher temperature so I need not worry about that, room temperature is enough. Hope this helps a bit...

I have to say I have never stirred or added ingredients half way to a slow cooker. Just risk it - put it all in together and leave it on low for 10hrs. I am sure you will be happy with the results!
