‘Roast’ Beef

‘Roast’ Beef


October 22, 2014

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 6 hrs
  • Yields: 6


1kg beef roast

1/2 cup salt reduced liquid beef stock

1 tbsp. wholegrain mustard

1 tbsp. tomato paste

1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 tsp. fresh thyme

1 tsp. fresh rosemary

1 tsp. cracked black pepper


1Place roast beef into slow cooker

2(I seared/sealed mine fist but this step is optional)

3Combine all other ingredients and pour over.

4Cook on low for approx. 6hrs

5I baste the juices over the meat periodically and turn it once during cooking if I am home but it won't matter if you don't.

6Slice roast and drizzle with a little of the juices.

7Serve with your favourite roast vegetables 🙂

I added a bed of sliced onion under the beef but otherwise followed the we recipe to a T. So delicious and moist! After taking the beef out to rest, I skimmed the melted fat of the top of the sauce and whisked in a cornflour slurry to thicken the sauce a little
This was so delicious and juicy. I surpassed my expectations. I think the Worcestershire sauce really makes it meaty. Will definitely be making this again

I have made this without tomato paste (tomato allergy), swapped soy sauce for Worcestershire sauce & omitted the pepper (grandies don’t like pepper) & it is still very tasty.

Online shopping options meant I had a bolar blade roast which I hadn’t cooked before. This recipe was spot on., followed exactly. Nice tender meat and delicious sauce.

You can 🙂

Can i use the regular mus? tard instead of whole grain mustard

John you could double the flavours but no need to double the stock as it will still release heaps of it’s own liquid

For 2.3kg piece would I double the quantities of the other ingredients?

I’ve just made this courtesy of a meat raffle win. Definite keeper, beautiful and tender as well as flavoursome. Served with mashed potato, peas and spooned the juices over the lot. I will add I’m fairly particular, so I was pleasantly surprised with the success of this recipe.

Same time Paul 🙂

Sounds good 🙂

I have a 5 kg blade was thinking maybe 10 hours on low?


October 21, 2018

What cut/joint did people use? Thanks


September 11, 2018

We thought this recipe was delicious. Didn’t make any changes except we used a 2kg roast. I cooked this on low for 8hrs the meat was tender and great taste.


September 3, 2018

Delicious!! Made this on Father’s Day and it was a hit. Cooked for 8hours on low as our joint was 1.8kg. Had leftovers for lunch. Sauce was great, could be done with so many other things. Thanks again Paulene.

I have a 1.9kg beef how long would I cook that for?! Thanks


June 3, 2018

Yummmm after cooked, I skimmed fat off the top and added cornflour slew plus a squirt of American mustard and heated to a yummy gravy with a tang…will definitely make again

That cut isn’t super lean is it? If not then sure that’ll be ok 🙂

Hi can i use GIRELLO

Probably closer to 5hrs for that size 🙂 Just check occasionally until it’s cooked to your level of preference 🙂

My piece of beef only weighs 500 grams how long to cook after searing. Very confusing on how long to cook for as it only a small piece of beef. Hope you can help please. My husband likes his bf well medium well done

I’d say medium well?
But you could take yours out sooner if you prefer 🙂


April 2, 2018

Did this turn out well done or medium

Hi Kerry 🙂
I’d suggest a quick search for our other roast beef recipes
Lots without mustard there x


February 5, 2018

Unfortunately we don’t like mustard can we use something else ?

I would cook it for around 5-6hrs on low


January 28, 2018

My joint weighs 0.720gms. How long should I cook it for?


January 14, 2018

Just put mine on for the day. Can’t wait 😆

It could do but you get the best tender result from long and slow cooking it


January 1, 2018

can this be cooked on high


June 3, 2017

Yum and so easy. I didn’t have any tomato paste so used 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce instead. Made gravy using the juices instead of just drizzling over
