Slow cooked beef joint


I used brisket for this recipe but I have used any roasting joint before Morrison’s is advertising beef roasting joints at the moment for £3.97 a kilo (December 2016) I think this deal lasts till 24th of the month this is a very good price its cheaper than stewing steak so very versatile I will be buying a few for the freezer.

I used a slow cooker but a large pan will work also if you are buying a slow cooker I would recommend one with a non stick aluminium insert so you can start the cooking process direct on the hob.

serves 6-8

Beef brisket

1 KG of beef brisket or roasting joint

4 carrots cut into large chunks

3 parsnips cut into large chunks

1 head of broccoli cut into florets

In a frying pan brown the outside of the joint on all sides then add to the slow cooker with all veg except broccoli salt and pepper add water about 25mm or up to your knuckle of your finger from the bottom of the pot.
