You know I love a good curry, so when I teamed up with Foodies100 and Simply Beef & Lambs’ #LIVEPEASANT sponsored campaign, I thought it would be a great easy offering to all by making a recipe in the Slow Cooker. You know how much I use mine and with a little bit of smart planning, it’s great for freeing up your hands to get on with other thing without compromising on a deliciously wholesome meal for the family.
And it doesn’t have to be expensive either. You can even pick up farm assured lamb or beef with the Red Tractor label from Aldi.
