Slow Cooker Campfire Stew

This tasty cowboy inspired meal is a new family favourite.  The smoked paprika adds a delicious barbecue flavour. Use unsmoked gammon as the smoked variety will make the dish too salty.

Ingredients

1 small unsmoked gammon joint all fat removed cubed
1 onion diced
two peppers diced
3 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
2 tins of baked beans
6 tablespoons of tomato puree
1 small red chili finely chopped

Method


Put garlic, peppers, onions, in a saucepan and cook in a little oil until softened.
Add finely chopped chilli, tomato puree, baked beans and smoked paprika.
Add the gammon
Bring to a simmer.
Add to slow cooker and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours.
Remove the gammon and shred. 
Return to the slow cooker and stir.
Serve with rice and tortilla chips or jacket potatoes and vegetables.

    1. You can buy a really good one for under £30 these days. Perfect for Winter stews, soups and all manner of dishes. You can even make fudge and cook cakes in it.
