Campfire Stew - Syn Free Slow Cooker Method

Slimming World Campfire Stew - Syn Free

 Campfire Stew

Prep time:
Cook time: 10
Total time: 10
Number of Servings: 4 servings


1 small Pork Or Gammon Joint (all visible fat removed)
1 Chopped onion
2 Chopped Peppers (any colour you like)
3 Crushed garlic cloves
1 tbsp Smoked paprika (sweet or spicy)
2 tins of baked beans
1 tin chopped tomatoes
I chopped red chilli or 1 tsp chilli powder (optional)


  • If using Gammon, soak over night in cold water. Change water before going to bed
  • Add all the ingredients to the slow cooker and switch on.
  • Set slow cooker to low setting and cook for at least 6 hours on low, or until you get home if working a longer shift!
  • Check consistency of sauce and tenderness of meat when you get in. Meat should be starting to fall apart and sauce thickening.
  • If need be, cook for 1 hour on high with lid off to finish the meat and thicken the sauce
  • Simply shred the meat in the slow cooker with two forks and mix well before serving!
  • Serve with rice or boiled potatoes, or simply on its own

Useful Tip 1! You can leave out the chilli at the cooking stage and add in some chilli flakes when you serve.

Useful Tip 2! Freeze any leftovers and take them to work as a packed lunch!


  1. Too much garlic for my liking overpowered all the other flavours. Would be lovely with less

  2. Hi. im not a fan of tinned tomatoes so could i swap for passata?

  3. do i have to soak my gammon over night

    1. No have cooked with out soaking and was lovely

  4. Fab hearty dish esp in this weather. Filling and very tasty!

  5. I don't like baked beans could I leave them out?

  6. No if you leave out the baked beans you will die.

  7. can u use beef instead off gammon or pork

  8. Hi, do i put the raw gammon in with all other ingredients or partial cook it first?
