One of the best features of winter is being able to pull out the slow cooker and whip up a delicious comfort meal with little effort.
This kitchen essential can turn cheaper (yet still healthy) cuts of meat like chuck, blade and oyster steak into mouth wateringly tender meals, all thanks to the increased cooking time.

Today we have gathered our TOP 10 DELICIOUS but healthy slow cooker meals for you to try.
