If I have an ingredient that is frugal, works well in a variety of dishes and always tastes amazing it is minced beef.
I love the 750g minced beef packs from Tescos, Asda or Aldi and will always have some spare packs in the freezer, ready for mealtimes.
I can then Defrost mince in the microwave or defrost overnight and then load into the slow cooker the next day.
Today, I wanted to share with my collection of slow cooker mince recipes, for those times when you have a pack of mince in the freezer and are looking for an easy way to slow cook mince.

What You Need To Slow Cook Mince?
When we slow cook mince, we use one of our slow cookers to do the trick. We have a super old slow cooker that we use now mainly for warming up food as it can’t keep its heat as much. As well as our Crockpot Slow Cooker & a Ninja Foodi which has a fantastic slow cooker function.
You will also need some mince and I recommend having a stockpile with the usual ingredients that go into slow cooker mince recipes such as:
- Tinned Tomatoes
- Tinned Black Beans
- Dried Red Lentils
- Tomato Puree/Paste
- Dried Oregano/Basil
- Frozen Chopped Garlic
- Frozen Peas
- Worcester Sauce
As with these simple ingredients, you can make a lot with some mince in the slow cooker.
What Mince Can You Use In The Slow Cooker?
You can use any mince you like. I recommend you go with 5% lean steak mince because others can hold a lot of fat and make your slow cooker food greasy.
But you can use quorn mince for a vegetarian option, or go with pork, lamb, chicken, turkey etc.
