Du Fermier's daube of beef with root vegetables

Anson Smart

If there’s one upside to cold weekends inside, it’s the extra time you can commit to slow-cooker recipes. Braised chickpeas, simmering soups, eight-hour lamb: there’s never been a better time to cook things on the low and slow side.

From slow-cooker chicken thighs to pot roasts and pasta, a slow-cooked meal is the ultimate crowd-pleaser comfort food. Weeknight dinner has never been easier than with slow-cooker dishes. Set and forget your pot on a lazy weekend, and reap the rewards of hearty meals that the whole family will enjoy for the days to come.
