When you don’t have much time on your hands for prep but want to cook something that feels a bit special, this is a great recipe. Using mainly storecupboard staples, the slow cooker gently cooks the ham into fall-apart tenderness, and the paprika turns the beans into smoky, cowboy-worthy yumminess! The other great thing about this is not only is it a great dinner, it’s also fab on top of a jacket potato the next day!

If you don’t want to use bought baked beans then try my version using cannellini beans instead: Bonfire Night stew!

If you are following Slimming World then the chances are that you will have heard people talking about this in group- it’s a real syn-free Slimming World classic! It’s easy to see why as it’s so easy to make, contains lots of goodness, and it filling and comforting!

10 mins
6 hrs

Ingredients

  • small gammon joint all fat removed
  • 2 onions diced
  • 2 peppers diced
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tins baked beans
  • 6 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped

Instructions

  • Mix together all ingredients other than the ham.
  • Spoon half of the mixture into the slow cooker, place the ham in the centre, and cover with the rest of the mixture.
  • Cook on high for 6 hours, or low for 10-12 hours.

Notes

When the ingredients are all in the slow-cooker, it does look like quite a dry mixture. You shouldn't need to add any water as the juices come out of the meat, but if after a couple of hours it still looks very dry you could add a couple of cups of water or passata.
