The Slow Cooker

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 14/06/2018

His slow-cooked meat was nearly ready. He pored over his meal like a god, stirring occasionally and salivating at the prospect of the flavours which would soon fill his mouth.

Steam rose from the hot liquid which tenderised the meat and allowed it to absorb the herbs he’d added. Under the meat was a bed of sage, and on top he’d liberally placed sprigs of rosemary and bay leaves.

It was time to eat. Pulling the plug out of the steaming bath, he allowed the water level to drop before starting to carve just above the dead man's thigh.
