The other week I finally took the plunge and got my hands on a slow cooker.. I’d heard great things about slow cookers and was drawn in by the promise of healthy, easy and hearty meals (in just one pot!). Slow cooker meals are super delicious and as such I cannot recommend them enough.
Today’s recipe uses beef.. beef is not only a great source of protein but is rich in iron (needed for oxygen to be transported around the body – a lack of energy can be a sign of iron deficiency), zinc (for your immune system) and B vitamins (to maintain a variety of healthy bodily functions).
*I used diced casserole beef and removed any visible fat
Serve with low GI basmati rice and an extra side of salad (if you’re feeling healthy!)
UPDATE: Thank you to everyone who sends me pictures of my recipes on Twitter & Facebook – here are a selection!!
This is a brill recipie, just made it for tea today. I added sweet pointed red peppers and red onion instead of spring onions and it tasted delicious served with sweet potato mash and asparagus! Thanks Nic again for such a fab healthy recipie 🙂
Hi Jess! I LOVE your tweaks! Thank you so much for your comment 🙂 xx
I made this this week. Slight changes, I skipped the mushrooms and spring onions and added pepper instead. I also skipped the flour and the frying as I don’t normally bother, part of the joy of the slow cooker is being able to just lob it all in! It was very nice and eaten by everyone.
Haha nice to know you don’t have to do those bits!! Thanks Neil! x
