Slow Cooking

Updated on August 12, 2015

The slow cooking process

A very tasty and very cheap recipe is my slow cooking casserole of chicken liver, pork and beef. I chose these cheap cuts because they are so tasty when cooked slowly in the oven.

In the pan

Slow Cooking Ingredients

100g diced chuck steak

2 onions chopped

150 g chicken livers

120g pork kidneys

2 slices black pudding

tsp hot chilli sauce

tbsp soy sauce

salt and pepper.

2 potatoes

cooking oil

chicken stock

Pour a good measure of cooking oil into a saucepan and when hot, add the chopped onions.

Chop up the meats and black pudding, and when the onion is translucent, put the mixture on top of them.

Add salt and pepper and cover. Cook for ten minutes then mix all together.

Add soy sauce and hot chilli sauce and cover the meats with chicken stock.

Cover with tin foil after mixing and put the pan in the centre of the pre heated oven at 220 C. or Gas 7.

After 15 minutes turn the oven down to gas 2, or 90C and cook for 2 hours.

Check for liquid level occasionally.

Vary the Potato

Cut one of the peeled potatoes into thick ovals and dice the other one.

Simmer the potatoes in salted water until soft. When cooked, drain and leave to cool.

When the casserole has been removed from the oven, divide into two and place in separate dishes. I made some gravy from the bits left in the pan by adding a tablespoon of flour, mixing to a paste, then adding some boiling water to it. I poured the gravy into the dishes.

Cover one dish with the sliced ovals of potato. Paint with vegetable oil.

Mash the diced potato, add butter and spread it over the second dish.

Put them back in the oven at 200 C gas mark 6 for 20 minutes to brown the top. Eat with crusty bread.

This will feed a family of four or five very cheaply, and it's delicious. There's no doubt that the slow cooking method will bring out the flavours of the food.

Ready for browning

      Hi, Tonymac. Black pudding is not essential. I only put it in because it was in the fridge. Let me know how you get on. Cheers.

      Looks so tasty and just the thing for a cold winter's evening. Just have to make it without my wife seeing what I put into it! I don't think we can get bloack pudding here - any suggestions for a replacement?

      Thanks for sharing. Will let you know when I have made it how my wife reacted. Could be good for a Hub in itself! LOL!

      Love and peace
