Ok, i know that ‘dump bag’ does not exactly conjure images of tasty food but please bear with me. The concept of a slowccoker ‘dump bag’ is where you prepare all your ingredients for a meal in a freezer bag, freeze and defrost and dump it into the slowcooker when you want it. Sounds much more appealing now, eh? This really is a great batchcooking concept for busy people.



600g cubes of stewing beef

1 cup beef stock

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes

4 cloves garlic crushed


  1. Put everything into a freezer bag and freeze for when you need it.
  2. Once defrosted, cook on slow for 8 hours.
  3. Remove beef from slowcooker and shred/pull apart with two forks.
  4. Pour the remaining juices in the slowcooker over the beef.

Serve with baked potatoes and steamed green beans. This is also lovely served in sandwiches with a large green salad.

Happy slowcooking,
