I cooked it all over an afternoon in the slow cooker until it thickened and all the veg and meat was soft.
I do love a slow cooker meal as it makes the house feel toasty warm and I can enjoy the afternoon whilst it cooks and there's usually lots of leftovers for lunch the next day of freezing batches of.
