I always do it without searing – it’s still perfectly amazing 🙂

Question, has anyone cooked it without searing /browning/ sealing the meat first? If so, did it still turn out nice?

Sorry might sound like a strange question but does it taste like a roast or a stew type meat

Absolutely fantastic and delicious dish. Even my very fussy kids ate it all. Will definitely be making this again and again

We don’t find it that way and I’ve not heard anyone else say that? Maybe next time reduce it though for sure if that suits your tastes better 🙂

The Worchester sauce mix seems really overpowering, is it meant to be that way?

For a large one this size I’d give it all day long, like 9-10hrs

This recipe is delicious, tender and so full of flavour.
My husband is not a big fan of roast beef but this recipe has changed his mind

It can be but you get a far better tender result from cooking it low and slow 🙂

Cooked this today first time very simple recipe.
Thought I had purchased blade roast but it was 3x individual pieces. I turned the meats 2hrs into cooking & basted every 1hr after – cooked 5hr low, 1hr high. Meat turned out lovely & tender served with roast vegetables, steamed corn cobs & green beans! 👍😋

Love this recipe. It has become my ‘go to’ whenever I cook roast beef. Simple, tasty, moist & delicious.

Did it as a 2kg piece so I had plenty for left overs for sandwiches. The BEST, most moist, roast beef I’ve ever made. Thickened the gravy on the stove and it was so rich. OMG yummy. Thank you for the recipe Simon.

Cooked through medium-well I guess you would say 🙂
A nice large piece would tolerate longer cooking time well

How does the meat turn out with this length of cooking? As in medium, well-done etc? And would it dry out if I gave it more like 8 hours?
