Hangi – slow cooker

Serves 2-3

INGREDIENTS: Per Hangi Package (slow cooker should hold 2-3 Hangi packages)
1 chicken drum stick
1 pork strip or chop
1 ball of stuffing
1-2 Potato pieces
1-2 Kumara pieces
1-2 Carrot pieces
1-2 Pumpkin pieces
2-3 Cabbage leaves
Salt and pepper
Smoked Paprika (optional)
Manuka Smoke Concentrate Spray (optional – available from gourmet food stores)

METHOD:
Place meat, chopped vegetables and stuffing on a cabbage leaf, season with salt and pepper, smoked paprika and spray with Manuka Smoke. Wrap up each parcel securely in tin foil.
Put 6-8 small rolled-up balls of tin foil (or 2 ramekins upside-down) in the bottom of the slow cooker and pour in water to just cover the balls/ramekins.
Place foil wrapped packages of meat and vegetables on top of tin foil balls.
Cover with a damp tea-towel over the top of the crock pot with the sides hanging down outside and place lid on top. Cook for 6-8 hours on High. Do not lift lid until time is up.

Stuffing
Serves 2-3 Hangi Packages
INGREDIENTS:
4 Slices Bread
1 x Egg
1 x Onion
1 Tablespoon Mixed Herbs Salt & Pepper

METHOD:
Tear bread into small pieces and place in food-processor to create breadcrumbs
Finely chop onion, add remaining ingredients and mix into small balls.
IDEAS:
You could use store-bought stuffing if you want, and you can make stuffing using your hands (don’t need a food-processor). A great meal when you don’t have a kitchen.
