All this wind and rain has totally put me in the mood to slow cook delicious family dinners. There’s nothing better than coming home, opening the door and being greeted by the smell of dinner just waiting ready for you.
We’ve rounded up our favourite slow cooker winter warmers, delicious, filling and recipes your family will love.
Slow cooker brisket and gravy
Slow cooker brisket and gravy is fast becoming my favourite lazy Sunday lunch. It’s just a matter of throwing a few ingredients into the slow cooker on Sunday morning, then going off for the day and coming home to delicious melt in the mouth brisket and a rich onion gravy.

Pendle Witch Stew
A totally delicious seasonal stew with lamb, fresh vegetables and herbs, slowly cooked in wine and rich stock, perfect in a baked potato – get the Pendle Witch stew recipe here.
BBQ mince with beans
This delicious (and very moreish) BBQ minced beef recipe is a fab autumn/winter meal. This easy family recipe has a rich warming depth of flavour but without the heat and fire of a spicy chilli. It’s one that’s a big hit with the kids, they love scooping up the rich meat sauce with tortilla crisps. Get the slow cooker BBQ mince recipe here.
Deliciously light and healthy this easy slow cooker family meal will quickly become a favourite. Using turkey mince instead of the traditional lamb really lightens up this curry and gives it a fresh healthy taste. Get the turkey keema recipe here.
