  • Put everything except the cornflour and parsley into the slow cooker (crumble the stock cubes).
  • Cook on low for 8 hours, or high for 4 hours.
  • To thicken the gravy, gradually add a couple of tablespoons of liquid from the slow cooker, to the cornflour, stirring to first make a paste, then a thick liquid. Pour this back into the slow cooker, stirring well, and cook for another 30 minutes.
  • Finally, stir in the parsley, and season to taste. Serve over rice or mashed potato.
