Slow Cooker Bolognaise

So I had 1kg of mince and zero inclination to actually do anything. So I surfed the net and found a couple of recipes that I liked and mixed them together to make this Slow Cooker Bolognaise recipe.

If you don’t have a slow cooker you can simply use a large stock pot and cook on low.



  • 1 kg mince (beef or lamb)
  • 3 cans chopped tomatoes (400g each)
  • 2 onions (chopped)
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Pepper & Me’s Man Rub (or just use any herbs/spices you want)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef stock


  1. Add everything into your crockpot / slow cooker and stir to combine
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-5 hours.
  3. If it is quite runny after this time, add 3 tablespoons water and 1 teaspoon cornflour to the mix.
  4. Serve with spaghetti, pasta or rice.


I also had so many leftovers that I used it the next night to make a lasagne. You can also use this as pie filling, or add a bit of chilli and have it as a taco filler. Or even for nachos. It’s very versatile!
