Slimming World Slow Cooker Diet Coke Gammon (2 syns)

Fancy doing something different in the slow cooker? Then why not try out this Crockpot Diet Coke Gammon is ideal.

The idea of cooking with diet coke or any other fizzy soda is strange or unusual to some people, but more and more people are using drinks to cook and not only Coca Cola, I have cooked chicken with Fanta and that turned out great, cooking with Fanta usually make the dish go sweet and sour, whereas cooking with diet coke, it does give more of a BBQ flavour, so I have tried to cook a few other recipes that involve fizzy drinks and I must say that I have been pleased with the results, this slow cooker diet coke gammon is certainly a treat.

A lot of people have tried either this or Diet Coke Chicken, if you’ve not tried either, then you are sure in for a treat. The idea of cooking with Diet Coke can seem a little strange, but the taste that makes the meat tender and beautiful. Once this gammon is cooked, it is so tender and melts in the mouth.

This recipe is completely on track from Slimming World, it is low syn and so moreish, you will be coming back for more and so will everyone you make this for.

If you have tried Slow Cooker Pulled Pork, this recipe doesn’t go the same, as you finish the gammon in the oven with a honey glaze, this gammon can then be sliced and served with either Slimming World Chunky Chips or even with some veggies like a roast.

As it’s made with Diet Coke, you get a Gammon which is packed full of flavour, juicy and just what is needed.

Why cook in in the crockpot?

Slow cooker or crockpot cooking is a great way to cook meals, you can make near enough anything in the slow cooker. What you have to do is plan what you’re making. You may be wondering what are the benefits of using a slow cooker to cook meals, this simple answer to this is that you get some fantastic meals that can take a long time to cook, you can enjoy them more. If you’re someone who is out of the house working 8 hours or more a day, this is the best way to make sure you have a delicious meal when you get home.

Another reason to cook in a crockpot is that you can use cheaper cuts of meat, cuts such as beef brisket, chicken things or even a pork shoulder, these cuts all need a long time to cook to get the most out of them.

The final reason why you should cook with a slow cooker is that you can use less meat in your meals because the slow cooker extracts more of that meaty flavour and goodness, which then goes through the whole dish, all you need to do is bulk up with vegetables and pulses such at lentils.
