For those who take the slow cooker with them some light one pot ideas here.

I know there was a thread for these but I cant be bothered searching back for it, if any one knows where it is please feel free to move this.

Unfortunately a slow cooker cannot be used for a one-pot meal as you need to bring the ingredients to the boil first on a hob then transfer the mix to the slo-cooker to finish cooking slowly, whilst you are out etc.

I just use the skottle or paella pan on the Cadac & serve from there.

Hope this helps

Joe

Take a lid for your frying pans then.

I chuck everything into my slow cooker raw and it cooks fine. Occcasionally I brown the meat first, but it's not really essential. I have thought about taking my slow cooker on a camp.

We took our slow cooker away on all our trips last year, it worked really well, but I could maybe do with getting a slightly smaller one, as ended up doing too much evrytime! ( which is ok at home when you can freeze it!)

Most things I just bung in from raw, just really mince dishes that i would fry off a bit first to get rid of excess fat.

Brilliant Link to the BBC Good Food Site !

I followed the above link & then bookmarked the Sites URL to my Mobile Phone's Web Browser.

Provided I can get a signal  - we now have access to a great selection of One-Pot Menu ideas whilst on Site; & that will then allow us to work with the ingredients available at the local shops, to come up quickly with alternative menus on the fly if need be !

Regards

Paul

Yup agree with others for good old irish stew you don't need to brown anything you can just chuck the lot in and although it will take slightly longer will cook nevertheless in around 5-6hrs on medium.  You can make great soups in them too

Only need to boil dried beans, peas & pulses before slow cooking. Just use tins! Everything else OK.
