This is a great recipe I’ve made it with rolled beef and bolar beef. The rolled beef was better more tender. But both were good and a lovely flavor. A real favorite!

Delicious. Great for my large family. Will definently make this more regulary.

No water needed at all.
Always best not to ever use boiling water too as it can crack your bowl

I am new to using slow cookers , I take it you always add boiling water to cook your meat joints in ,

OMG so very good, great flavours. Enough to serve 3 adults, and 2 meals put aside frozen for lunches, plus some cold meat over the weekend for sandwiches.
