5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite slow cooker recipe book yet, 1 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Slow Cooker Cookbook: Time-Saving Delicious Recipes for Busy Family Cooks (Paperback)
I bought this book unseen on the basis of the favourable reviews I read here on Amazon and I haven't been disappointed. I already ow about 8 slow cooker books, many of which have some delicious recipes. What particularly appeals to me about this book is two things - every recipe has a full page colour picture & (and this is the reason I really love it) all of the recipes are 'chuck it in and turn it on' recipes. I haven't found a single recipe that requires you to pre-cook onions and garlic or to brown the meat before putting it into the slow cooker. For me the whole point of slow cooking is thatI can quickly chuck stuff into the pot before I leave for work or a weekend day out and then return, hours later, to a delicious dinner. Favourite recipes so far are:-

Spanish chicken and chorizo
Beef bourguignon
Easy peasy boiled ham
Thai green chicken curry
Chicken with leeks and mozzarella
Lamb shanks in red wine and redcurrant
Hunters chicken
Sticky five spice ribs
Smoky bbq pork ribs
Toffee apple pudding

I could go on....!

There is a reasonable selection of vegetarian recipes and a good selection of starters, snacks, main courses and puddings. I don't suppose any of the recipes are cutting-edge but they work, they are simple and they taste good and they really do involve a minimum of preparation.
