Tonight I cooked..........

Simple supper, which is a regular for us. Salmon, cous cous and vegetables.

Encouraged by @Humble Tiller and his orzo pasta - sausage and sundried tomato casserole with orzo. Served with garlicky mustard stir-fried cabbage (in bowls with writing).

Cast Iron weighs in at 9lbs. It frys and slow cooks. Made by Breville Australia in the early eighties.
Come up on ebay at intervals . We had one in use when the kids were growing up used regularly for over 20 years. Bought another and a spare (missus doesn't know about that). In my view the Rolls Royce of slow cookers. Will cope with a whole roasting joint.

Looks a bit like the Czech Remoska now sold in the UK by Lakeland at great prices. (Great meaning large, rather than super).
 
Continental Breakfast this morning - qualifying criteria for the thread, I cooked the eggs! :-D

Missus decided to slow cook a large piece of beef in the above. Sets to max to caramelise then turn down to slow cook. Off we go to Boston hospital for me to have a torn retina sorted, about a one hour drive.
Half way there I ask did you remember to turn the slow cooker down from max to slow cook?
"Oh f*ck" said it all. Too late to turn back so a hair raising drive to the hospital, hand brake turn ejecting me in the car park and back home she goes. Two hours later she is back and the op has been done.
Never asked how much smoke was in the kitchen. Some things are best left unsaid.
The upside was that the end result was fantastic, however I would not recommend this cooking technique.

Apparently you can use it as an oven for baking cakes but I have never tried it.
I can feel an experiment comming on.
