I have now replaced my large (6l) slow cooker with a 4l one. I think it will be much better for us. The first thing I did with it was this invented Slow Cooker Sausage & Bean Cassoulet – I'm not sure it is a cassoulet – maybe just a casserole or stew? Given I just tossed a few things together without a recipe it turned out very well.
Tin of beans (containing 4 different kinds) – drained
4 pork sausages (honey mustard flavour) – put in whole
1 ½ chorizo – chopped up
Tin of tomato soup
Splash of sherry which I swished around the tomato soup can to rinse it out
Spoonful of crème fraiche and lemon juice
Salt and pepper
Handful of rice (don't put too much in)
I just bunged everything into the slow cooker and left it on low for about 4 hours. I added some chopped herbs at serving time for a little pop of colour.
