I just fill my slow cooker with water, add brown sugar and cook.Start cooking at about midday and nice and moist when served up.

I just add to the slow cooker a few dribbles (! 1/4 cup) of malt vinegar & 2-3 tablespoons of golden syrup.Sometimes add a whole onion - it soaks up any excess salt - throw the onion out later, dont eat it.Put it on in morn before work - get home at end of day & dinners nearly done.

Or if doing it in a boiling pot on the stove I do all the above, add a few carrots then cover it over with cabbage leaves & let it simmer for hours.

how much brown sugar do you put in it !

I just use water,1/4 cup of malt vinegar and 1 whole onion normally but sometimes I add a small amount of orange zest and/or 2 Tbsp of maple syrup. I have used my slow cooker often but prefer it done in a pot on the stove as it is more tender. Had it hot for dinner tonight.

OK, by accident last week I cooked the perfect CB in the slow cooker.
First time I tried it I followed the recipe and cooked it about 7hrs on low. it came out a bit tough.THEN last week because of a miscommunication, it was put on High for about 5hrs, then Low for another 5hrs!(I went to work and family got the instructions wrong!). IT WAS falling-apart tender, and SO delicious!
I had it barely covered with water, squirted a few tblsp golden syrup on top, a splosh of malt vinegar, and some whole peppercorns.

Thats how I cook mine On high from about 9am till 4pm, then flick down to low until serving time. I add malt vinegar, brown sugar, a couple of bay leaves and half a dozen whole cloves to the crockpot. I always boil the jug and add hte boiled water to the crock pot and top up with enough cold to cover the meat, then add the above ingredients in.

I fully cover mine with water, and add about a cup brown sugar, i usually boil the water so your not having to heat the water as well.

Yeah, i only use about 1-2 tbsp of soft brown sugar. Some people like gingerale or golden syrup.
