I don’t know about you, but I love my slow cooker!

When you’re a time-poor mama, this trusty kitchen appliance can really help with food preparation. I use my slow cooker at least once a week.

I shared this recipe on our Facebook page a couple of weeks ago, and it was such a hit! It’s actually one of our personal favourites, so we know why people enjoyed it so much 🙂

Here’s my recipe for Slow-Cooked Chilli Beef!


550g gravy beef, diced

1 x brown onion, chopped

3 x cans kidney beans, rinsed and drained

800g diced tomatoes

1 x Always Fresh roasted capsicum strips

690g pasta sauce 1 x pack taco seasoning (not pictured as have a homemade batch in the pantry)

Chilli flakes to taste – I add 1-2 tsp as I don’t like it too hot

*can also add 1/4 cup coriander


Add beef and onion to slow cooker.

Add kidney beans, roasted capsicum, diced tomatoes, pasta sauce, taco seasoning and chilli flakes.

Give it a quick stir and then put the slow cooker on low. Leave to cook for 8-10+ hours. You’ll have tender, tasty beef ready to enjoy with fresh greens or any other veggies of your choice! Enjoy!
