Extremely tasty! I left this on low for much longer than the 6 hours as I work 9-5 but the results were great. Will make this again.

Very easy and tasty. Fairy spicy but we like that. Have now made this twice. The second time softened the onions and let them cool before adding to marinade as they didn't really cook properly when added raw. Very generous portion fed us both for two nights.

I don't have the space to put a slow cooker pot in the fridge overnight - how essential is this step? (Didn't mean to click a star rating but can't remove it...)

Thanks for your question. I'm afraid we're too late but for future reference, it's important to put the slow cooker pot in the fridge to keep everything fresh.

I just put the ingredients in a smaller bowl to put in the fridge and transferred to slow cooker when ready to cook.

Thanks for your question. It does give the ingredients a chance to start marinating and also gives you the opportunity to get ahead but it's no problem to omit this step if necessary.
