This is AMAZING! I added lots of extra veggies until my slow cooker was full to the brim and had it on low for 8 hours. I highly recommend this – it made a tough old cut of beef DELICIOUS!

It will reduce cooking time though risks drying it out or not as tender. I often start a roast of high to give it a kick start then leave it on low after the first 2hrs
Can you cook on high for a shorter amount of time please?

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!

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.
