This Slow Cooker Beef Joint recipe is the easiest and most delicious pot roast. Pop your meat and vegetables in to stew in the morning and then blend the gravy before serving. So tasty! (Easily adaptable for Slimming World or Gluten free diets.)
Sprinkle your flour, thyme, garlic powder and salt and pepper onto a chopping board. Dry off your topside with some kitchen paper and then roll all over in the flour mixture.
Heat your oil in a large frying pan, or if your slow cooker allows it, by putting the cooking dish onto the hob. Brown off the flour coated meat on all sides.
Remove the meat from the pan and add the garlic, onions and carrots and brown for 5 minutes until starting to soften. If you're using your slow cooker pan, add the meat back in. If you're using a frying pan, transfer everything to your slow cooker pan.
Pour in the tin of beef consommé and add a beef stock pot.
Cook on HIGH for 5 hours or LOW for 7 hours.
When cooked, remove the meat to a pan, along with some of the whole cooked carrots (as many as you can fish out!). Blend the rest of the liquid, onions and garlic to make a thick and delicious gravy to pour over.
