  1. A couple of times I added potatoes in the stew and cooked it in the sc, the potatoes came out … leathery! What am I doing wrong? I experimented with more or less liquid but the potatoes came out the same

  2. Made this recipe for 2 adults so halved it as we only have a small slow cooker that wouldn’t have taken that quantity of water. However that meant the amount if meat was really tiny so next time I would halve everything except the meat. Really low in calories. Felt if needed bread with it as it was quite watery.

  3. We don’t like Swede or other veg like that. If I double the carrots would replace the Swede. I would then serve with other veg like broccoli or would it be too much carrot.
