Serving: 5
Prep Time 25 minutes
Cook Time 8 hours
Total Time 8 hours 25 minutes


  • Beef blade roast (I used 2 x 1kg pieces)
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • Seasoning of your choice (I like paprika, onion, salt, garlic salt, & pepper)
  • 100ml red wine (eg Shiraz)
  • 5 or more small washed baby potatoes with skin on (Or halve larger ones)
  • 1 large piece of sweet potato (peeled and cut into 3)
  • 3 large carrots (peeled, cut into 2)
  • 1 large brown onion (peeled, whole)
  • 1 medium wedge of jap pumpkin (with skin on and cut into 3)
  • 5-10 Brussels sprouts
  • 1 bunch of asparagus (tipped of woody end)


  • Season roast beef pieces generously with the seasoning blend of your choice
  • Heat oil in searing slow cooker (or in frypan on stove)
  • Sear/seal beef on each side (5-10mins total)
  • Turn slow cooker down from searing to LOW. If using a fry pan return beef to slow cooker at this point.
  • Add wine and turn beef through wine
  • Add potatoes, sweet potato, and carrot around meat and begin an 8hr cooking time on LOW.
  • After 2hrs add onion and pumpkin wedges also around meat and continue to cook on LOW.
  • 1hr prior to completion of cooking time add sprouts around the beef and lay asparagus on top of beef.
  • After 8hrs cooking time has completed test vegetables with a fork to ensure all cooked to tender (you will notice 1-2 inches of fluid has released from your meat by now, which is why none is added to begin with)
  • Remove roast beef and allow to rest for a few minutes before carving
  • Gently remove vegetables to serving plates.
  • Enjoy with gravy of your choice


  • You could use instant gravy powder with the cooking juices if you choose
  • I keep the vegetable pieces large at the start to cook but on serving you can cut them into smaller pieces for the number of people you need to feed
  • Adjust included vegetables to your personal tastes
  • NO liquid added at the start except the splash or wine, which you could swap for stock if you prefer - there was definitely no strong wine taste in the end meat or vegetables at all (though would come through to the gravy if you used cooking juices)
  • Browning is optional if you prefer not to
  • I like to leave skin on pumpkin to keep it together. While I serve mine this way also you could remove skin on serving if you wish
  • The spice blend can be purchased ready made as a 'steak seasoning' in the spice jar aisle

  1. I tried this a fortnight ago with my new sear and slow cooker. It was the first thing I cooked in it and it turned out perfectly. I used beef stock instead of wine. The meat was so tender and the vegetables cooked beautifully. It was delicious. I am cooking it again this weekend when I have visitors.

  2. I have cooked this recipe 5 times now as my husband loves it, and every time has been delicious.?? I have also used Lamb instead of beef, I just used Vegetable stock instead of wine and the lamb just fell apart with yumminess if that is a word ??

  3. Looks delicious! I so want to get a searing slow cooker, would need to go for a smaller size though. Studying your reviews this afrvo! ?
