please suggest slow cooker recipes ...for newbies

my friend works in a small team (4-6 people) in Cambodia and despite plenty of supply of food, restaurants are either under the par, overpriced, or serve the same dishes everywhere. Cooking is the way to go but people in this forum (amater pro) probably couldn't imagine how difficult for some people to put the salt right, fry things in right heat and cook in the right time.

After my advice, they bought two rice cookers which works like a slow cooker. One is for cooking rice, another one for making stew and simmering anything. Stew seems to be a "tolerate dish" which can accept most mistakes and usually tastes acceptable and using rice cooker (like slow cooker) means that the change to catch on the bottom is near to zero.

Could you recommend some easy recipes for someone who don't know anything about cooking?

Here is one of the recipe I gave them. I test it at my home rice cooker with detailed measurements.
- 2 pounds pork ribs, cut into pieces.
- 200ml soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 3 teaspoons salt
- two star anises, 1 small piece cinnamon, 5 teaspoons minced chilis
- 2000ml water

put everything in a rice cooker, cover the lid , simmer for 3 hours. Remove the excess oil afloat on the stew and serve.

...It's rather simple but they told me that it's the best food they've ever had in the whole month. Can you recommend some easy dish like this?
