Hi and welcome Ellebob

Welcome

Thanks for the above, Hummingbird - I'm glad to see you're not so shy !!!

I have the 7 litre model too Ellebob - as Hummingbird points out, make sure your casserole dish fits. If it doesn't you can cook directly in the bottom of the oven, but the cooking time will be quite a bit longer as the hot air can't circulate underneath.

Unfortunately no-one has yet posted their tried and tested recipe for a HO stew. Use this link to a post by Reeta which contains a link to a stew recipe. Sometimes longer and slower cooking can benefit the results.

well i tried the stew and it didn't go fantastically!
the meat was very nice and so to the gravy......but the veg was rather aldente!! (ok.....virtually raw carrots and parsnips!)
i think where i went wrong was that i didnt have a casserole pot small enough, and so had to do it in the main glass bowl. after 2 hours on full it had cooked the meat but not the veg Sad
oh well, on a plus not i tried scones and these were perfect!! nom nom!!
will carry on and try more recipes!!

Hi Ellebob

Thanks for sharing your experiences. Sorry about your stew. Crying or Very sad
It does seem that hard veg like carrots, parsnips etc take longer than meat to cook in the HO - I'm glad that at least your meat was very nice. Most recipes that I can find seem to be softening the veg by either frying till soft on the hob or cooking in oil on a baking tray in a hot HO for 5-10 minutes before adding to the casserole. Don't let this put you off, we have all got there with a bit of trial and error.

Perfect scones sound like just the thing to lift your spirits again and please do keep on trying more recipes - if you need help, just ask, we will try to help where we can.

Im also new to halogen oven i have the prolectrix 12l oven - i think you have answered one of my questions regarding whether you can cook directly in the glass bowl so thank you - as regards the stew i do quite a few in the slow cooker and i just microwave the potatoes carrots and leeks etc for 6 or 7 minutes then add them at the start and they are perfect so when i do a stew i will do the same and let you know how it goes.

On my boat I have a slow cooker and microwave. The HO was bought to replace the oven and gas hob. Not sure i've made the right decision as I thought it would replace the slow cooker too for stews, curries etc. :confused:

Hi Evenstar

Only you know what you want from your HO. I use mine in my caravan. It is a very efficient oven and grill but personally I couldn't do without my hob.

Hi Doreena,

it's best to cook your stew in another dish placed on the low rack. You need hot air to circulate all around the stew for even cooking.

If you have to cook a really large amount then you can cook it directly in the halogen oven bowl but you must stir it often.

Hope this helps
