Slow Cooker Challenge Round Up – September 2014

Uncategorized | September 28, 2014 | By

Things are still a little ‘slow’ in the world of this blog challenge but three generous bloggers have slowly and lovingly cooked some melt in the mouth treats for you.

Dear Dominic of Belleau Kitchen, was determined that he was going to enter my challenge, even though he does not own an electric slow cooker.  His dogged determination paid off and I’ve decided to change the rules from now on to include any slow cooked meal, not just those cooked in a gadget for the purpose.

And so I present to you Dom’s Slow Roast Chicken Thighs with Plums, Carrots, Potatoes, Garlic and Celery

Brisket is one of my favourite cuts of beef and I know that it is also one that Karen of Lavender and Lovage likes to cook with too.  It’s ideally suited for slow cooking and Karen has make a fabulous one pot meal in her Crockpot: Slow Cooked Brisket with Elderberry Glaze and Port Jus

Lucy of Baking Queen74 joined in with a great week night supper dish, ideal when running around delivering children to various activities.  This Slow Cooker Pork Leek and Apple Casserole will be piping hot and ready to eat at the end of a busy day.

Thanks so much to all three  for entering.  The new challenge will be launched on 1st October welcoming entries from any meals cooked slowly whether in a Slow Cooker, Crockpot or any other method.  In the meantime check out the back list of round ups for some great slow cooked recipes.

    Ha! You've changed the rules JUST as I was about to be able to start entering the original way! Have just this week traded up my rubbishy slow cooker that burned everything for a decent one and am looking forward to a winter of warming slow cooked treats.
