So I know it's nearly summer here, but I'm tired of club/delivery/pizza etc. during the week and I have an hour-long commute home, so the idea of trying to find slow cooker recipes so I can come home to dinner is very appealing.

I did a chicken adobo, and it was OK but nothing terribly special. Next I tried similar but tried to Korean-ize it, and it was similarly OK but nothing special.

Now I'm making progress with a pseudo chicken tikka masala, using this recipe:
http://www.thekitchn.com/recipe-slow-co ... chn-211284

I used coconut cream instead of milk and threw it all in at the beginning.

Encouraged by the success of that, I replaced my standard slow cooker with one that has a timer, hoping that I can instead set it to say six hours on low and have it switch to warm. I haven't tried it on a full-commute day, but today I was at home and decided to break in the slow cooker with BEANS!!!!

I heart beans but I can't cook them. Or couldn't. Until today.
I did this, with half stock half water, added a chopped onion and a generous pinch or two of chile pepper flakes. Also spanish sliced sausage stuff we had in the fridge instead of bacon, which we didn't.

So freaking good, I had to nibble bites of beans before we had the main dish (a side with the meatloaf).

I need more recipes - I'm hooked!

BTW what does everyone think about lamb in the slow cooker?

It's hard to find cheap lamb here but I'm hearing a leg of lamb would work well, and I can find it, just not at Trader Joe's.

The chicken tikka masala recipe above would work well with lamb, I'm sure.

I made pea and ham soup in mine last week. Just dumped a packet of split green peas, a leek, some diced carrot, a ham hock, some chicken stock and a couple of bay leaves in and left it until the ham fell off the hock.

I've cooked up a couple of stews to take away this weekend. Leeks, mixed peas corn and carrot, diced potato, tomato paste stock, dried italian herbs, garlic and chicken or beef. Cook for 7 to 8 hours.

Smells pretty good. Easy to heat up and eat in our little cottage place by the ocean.

I made crockpot beans yesterday using this recipe.

http://allrecipes.com/recipe/58389/slow ... ade-beans/

I cut back a bit on the brown sugar, the recipe looked too sweet. I boiled and soaked them first before adding them to the crockpot. I didn't add the salt or ketchup until the beans had already lost their firmness, a few hours after cooking on high. A good tip to know when making beans, makes a huge difference.
You might be cooking them for days before they become tender if you add salt and ketchup at the beginning of the recipe.

*edit*

I used a whole package of bacon, but cooked it part way first to eliminate much of the fat.

Lamb curry, lamb stew, etc. All very good.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.

I'd forgotten about this. Last weekend they had big lamb roast at Costco for something like $6/pound. From Australia no less. ehs would approve of course, but he'd probably prefer a lamb roast rather than a crock pot version.
