Another thermal cooker recipe by Mr D from Mr D's Kitchen. A wonderful casserole made with red wine, chestnuts and venison sausages.
If you don't like venison though why not use pork or beef sausages and remember this recipe like all of mine will work well in a slow cooker.
This recipe full of the tastes of Morocco and will suit vegetarian and meat eaters alike. The recipe comes from a great book by Sara Lewis which is full of Slow Cooker meals that can easily be adapted for the thermal cooker.
To celebrate 100 years since Elizabeth David CBE was born I have taken one of her recipes and adapted it for the thermal cooker. Elizabeth David has been the inspiration of many of our chefs today and influenced many home cooks with articles and books about European cuisines and traditional British dishes.
For this dish you an use any beef joint but remember the cheaper cuts will need a lot longer to tenderise them. I served my Pot Roast Beef with lovely creamy mashed potatoes which soaked up all the lovely mushroom gravy. If you have a top pot you can cook your potatoes in that and they will be perfect to mash just before serving.
Remove the meat and add the onions and garlic. Cook the onions until they a soft.
Place the meat back on the onions and add all the other ingredients.
Pour in some water if the meat is not completely covered.
Bring to the boil and then turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes.
Put the inner pot into the insulated outer container and shut the lid. Cook for a minimum of 4 hours without power depending on the cut of meat. If cooking it longer bring it back to the boil after the 4 hours.
Serve with mashed potatoes and vegetables of your choice
This is a wonderful eat anytime curry adapted from a recipe by Pat Chapman of The Curry Club. The curry is so easy to make and will be loved by all. I added chickpeas to my version as I love them but you could add peas which is more traditional.
