  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • 15 mins

    6 hrs

    6 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: 6


Roast beef (blade or topside) up to 2kg

1 large onion

1.5 tbsp bottle mustard (I used mild American style in a squeeze bottle)

1 sachet of instant roast meat gravy powder (usually makes up to 1 cup of gravy when mixed)

Spice rub

1/2 tsp pink Himalayan salt

1/2 tsp cracked black pepper

1.5 tsp smoked paprika

3/4 tsp of garlic powder

1/4 tsp of cumin



1Place roast in slow cooker and pierce some holes all over the top surface of it with a sharp knife

2Cut large onion into quarters and place around the roast in the base of the slow cooker

3Combine rub ingredients and rub onto and into the surface of the roast beef

4Squirt the mustard across the top of the roast

5Cook on high for 4hrs then low for 2hrs (or Auto for 7hrs or low for 8hrs)

6When cooked, using a slotted spoon remove the onion and discard

7Remove roast beef from slow cooker and rest it while you make the gravy

8To make gravy add the gravy powder sachet (dry, no water added) to the cooking juices and whisk to combine well then turn to HIGH

9While carving your meat and plating up your meals have the slow cooker cook on HIGH to thicken your gravy nicely (you could do this on a stove top also if you prefer to do it faster but ours thickened nicely in slow cooker in around 10-15mins)
