Slow Cooker Bolognaise

The best thing about having a slow cooker, is throwing everything in, turning it on and forgetting about it for HOURS. Then before you know it you have a delicious meal and you practically did nothing.

Having a slow cooker in your cupboard, is a seriously smart move.

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



  • 1 kg mince (beef or lamb)
  • 200 grams middle bacon (cut into 2-3cm pieces)
  • 3 cans chopped tomatoes (400g each)
  • 2 onions (chopped)
  • 2 medium carrots (peeled and diced)
  • 2 celery sticks (diced)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 2 tsp salt
  • ½ cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • ¼ cup cornflour


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


This is a HUGE recipe – it makes a lot. Once it has cooled down you can freeze it in batches and use with spaghetti or when you’re making 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!
