This section features a selection of recipes on this site which are  slow-cooked on the hob. We've included traditional stews plus items such as tagines and curries however you can find more slow cooked hob dishes on the slow cooking main page and throughout the site.


All the recipes on this site give cooking times, but it should be remembered that many stews, particularly meat and poultry, can be cooked for much longer periods than stated.  Also, many dishes (with the exception of fish) can be safely reheated, often leading to a richer  tasting dish where all the flavours have melded together.


When using a slow-cooker for stews,  the amount of liquid may need adjusting and the manufacturers' timing recommendations adhered to. Slow cookers are an excellent way to cook stews especially for people who are out at work. Simply turn them on before you leave in the morning and you'll come back in the evening  to a delicious freshly cooked homemade stew.




Below are just a few of the many stove top slow-cooked recipes on this site to help you on your way however do experiment with ingredients, especially those which are in season and the choice of cooking liquids such as wine, beer and cider.
