Slow cooker Moroccan beef curry

    Was I the only one to notice that the recipe is titled Moroccan Beef but the ingredients list says lamb? I guess I noticed more because I am a lamb producer ….??ReplyCancel

    Just got a Slowcooker for Mother’s Day….am I right in understanding that there is no real liquid in this recipe?ReplyCancel

    • No I didn’t use any liquid I found that after an hour or so juices appeared which then helped to cook the meat.

    Its like you read my mind… I was just looking for a slow cooker recipe for silverside / corned beef as I got a slow cooker for my birthday last week!!

    Can I put the beef in for longer than 6-8 hours or will it ruin the meat?

    PS LOVE YOUR SITE :) xxReplyCancel

    • No, I usually put mine on around 9am and eat 6.30pm and it’s perfect.ReplyCancel

      • Kylie

        Thanks Katrina :) Am cooking this tomorrow hopefully it all goes perfectly :) xReplyCancel

  • Wendy

    make sure you use brown sugar and brown vinegar. Also adding golden syrup (instead of or along with the brown sugar) and half an orange works beautifully.ReplyCancel
