Slow Cooker Scottish Stovies
Slow Cooker Scottish Stovies is a traditional ‘stoved’ potato recipe adapted or the Slow Cooker. Chunks of potato cook slowly with sliced onions, seasoned with a savoury beef flavour.
- 900 g Potatoes
- 2 onions
- 20 g solid vegetable fat or beef dripping
- 1 Beef stock cube if using vegetable fat
- 1 tsp salt
- 30 ml water
Slice the onions and cut the potatoes into 4 cm pieces
Place the dripping or fat in a pan and very gently sauté the onions. They should soften but not colour.
Add the potatoes and stir them to coat and mix thoroughly with the onions.
Transfer to your slow cooker pot.
Grind up stock cube (if using) with salt, sprinkle over the potatoes and onions in the slow cooker.
Pour over the water, don't be tempted to add more, 30 ml is all you need) put on the lid and cook for 1 hour 15 minutes on HIGH, then 1 hour 15 minutes on LOW.
When the potatoes are cooked, take a wooden spoon and roughly break up the potatoes. You want to retain chunks of potato but roughen up the edges.
If you have a slow cooker pot that can go on the stove, you can saute the onions in the pot rather than using a separate pan. Once the Scottish Stovies are ready, you can serve as a side dish or add leftover meat or vegetables to the potatoes and serve as a main meal.
