    I will answer my own question now ;p haha. 
     
    I have used the slow cooker twice and its a game changer. Pulled Pork was fantastic, marinaded pork shoulder the night before in honey, bbq sauce, olive oil, chilli powder, garlic powder and onions, then slow cooked for 12 hours and the pork was absolutely immense. 
     
    Also made a Beef stew, through in some beef pieces, loads of veg, potatoes in some red wine and beef stock. Switched it on in the morning and ate on the night. The taste is superior to any other way of cooking I have ever tried and it is so easy and quick. Would recommend to anyone who is keen on trying new dishes and hasn't a lot of time to spare in the kitchen.

    I make this quite often in my slow cooker......
     
    1 large chicken, skinned and cut in to large pieces (leave the thighs and drumsticks whole, cut each breast in half. Keep the remaining part of the carcass.
    1 tin of chopped tomatoes, 1 can of chick peas or something similar,1 onion diced or chopped, dried thyme, garlic cloves, chicken stock cube (I use the stock pots) salt and pepper. Half pint of water.
     
    What I do is prep the chicken and cut up the onion the night before and leave in a bowl in the fridge.
    Then in the morning before I go to work, just bung everything (including the carcass) in your slow cooker and cook on low until you get in from work. When you get home, remove the carcass and any bones that have been stripped of their meat (thigh bones just pull out clean !) and any bits of cartilage etc. Serve up in bowls with some good bread.
    I make this for a family of four. Cheap easy meal and ready when you get home.
    Enjoy !!

    Everything from porridge to curries and stews.
    Some slow cookers have a timer, if not you can use a plug in timer.
    There are many dedicated websites for slow cooking recipes.
    My current favourite is chicken breasts with pineapple and peppers.

    I do a big cook each week of beef, frozen veg, and pasata to make small batches to be frozen.
     
    Also for the kids I do a similar one with more veg then they have that with pasta for dinner in between other meals. 
     
    Its good for having a backup in the freezer. 
     
    But I've hardly done anything else in it so looking forward to getting some more recipes. 
     
    What sort of cuts of pork do you use? I've tried pork chops but it wasn't anything special.
     
    Thai coconut curries came out pretty well though.

    My slow cooker has two settings and a timer and then will switch to very low heat to keep it warm until you are ready. Only burnt food in it once!

    I just use shoulder of pork, normally from Aldi. The taste is superb. 
    I actually got a packet last week from Tesco called slow cooked chicken and red wine sauce. All you need is chicken thighs, bacon and mushroom. Cook off the bacon and throw it all in, it was the nicest meal Ive had in a long time!

    I make this, except I add a load of madrass powder to make it into a sort of curry
