Place your choice of meat in the slow cooker. Beef brisket is good.

In a fry pan place 30 mls (2 table spoons) of oil, Olive is good. Heat on low. Add to this the following:

1tsp ground corriander
1tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground tumeric
.5 tsp ground nutmeg
.5 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tblesp of fresh ginger or one tsp of ground.
2 tble spoon of fine chopped garlic
4 whole cardoman seeds and 4 whole cloves.
Put in fresh red or green chillies according to taste.

Let this fry gently till well mixed up.

Now back to the meat in the slow cooker. Put in veggies, celery, green peppers, courgette(zucchini), leeks, onions and I would use some frozen mixxed veggies, the small kind, that mixes peas and sweetcorn and carrot.

Cover with half a cup red wine and water. Now put in the stuff from the frying pan. Add a couple of bay leaves. Also add about half a pint of sieved tomatoes. Salt to taste.

Stir up and leave to cook all day or overnight.

What I do is make a few dishes this way, and I place them in those plastic boxes that are airtight, and freeze them. I get about 7 meals from each cooking.
