We love our slow cookers here in Sadie’s HQ. Particularly in the colder months, when nothing beats walking in the door from a long day to be greeted by the wafting of a delicious and nutritious family meal. Particularly a dish that’s so easy to prepare; pop the ingredients into the slow cooker and you’re all ready to go. And who doesn’t love an Irish stew? Take this nation’s classic to the next level with the addition of our new Boosting Beef Bone Broth, adding a depth and richness like never before. Also, the alcohol cooks off during the cooking process for anyone worried about giving it to kids – it’s perfectly safe for them.
