Slow cooker devilled sausages


Two sausages in red tomato sauce on mashed potato and peas on a black plate with a knife and fork.
Winter warmer time and I love a good slow-cooker sausages recipe. Try cooking Devilled Sausages from scratch, rather than using a powdered sachet to get your sauce. The outcome is far superior. Just a delicious family meal.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 15 minutes
Course Dinner
Servings 4 people


  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornflour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp mint sauce
  • 8-12 NZ lamb sausages about 700g
  • 1 can Chantal Organics chopped tomatoes 400g
  • 1 large onion sliced
  • 1 stick celery chopped
  • 1 can peaches 400g, slightly drained or use 1-2 Granny Smith apples, chopped.

To serve

  • mashed potatoes


  • Place the sugar, cornflour and salt into your slow cooker or crock pot. Add the mint sauce and soy sauce and stir until smooth. Separate the sausages and brown in a little oil for a few minutes in a heavy-based fry pan. Place into the crock pot in the liquid with the tomatoes.
  • Chop the peeled onion length-wise and brown in the fry pan you used previously. Add browned onion, celery and peaches (or apples) to the crock pot, and stir into the mixture.
  • Cook for 8 hours on the slow cooker or crockpot low setting.
  • Serve on creamy mash with steamed greens and the sauce drizzled over. Also great with rice or a baked potato, fresh veges like beans or broccoli.


Fresh tips: exchange the celery out for a green of your choice, leek is good if you've got plenty over winter. Experiment with other fruit as well over winter, a tamarillo or two is also perfect instead or alongside the apples or peaches.
If using beef sausages, swap out the mint sauce in the recipe for red wine vinegar.
Pork sausies work well here too with the apple.

    Just been looking at the Devilled Sausage Recipe. The list of ingredients says 1 T Mint Sauce, but the instructions say “add vinegar” Can’t see where there is vinegar listed in the ingredients. Also at the bottom of the recipe it says “Add a dash of mint sauce to the recipe for that lovely lamb mint combo ” Is this in addition to the 1 T of Mint Sauce in the ingredients ? Just need to check as I am going to make this recipe. Look forward to hearing from you.

      Thanks so much for spotting this Alison! You’re awesome. Yes I used to use red wine vinegar using beef but when I wanted to do lamb sausies, I changed out the vinegar for mint sauce. Will amend now. Thanks so much!
