Roast beef in a slow cooker
« on: February 22, 2014, 08:53:45 pm »
Hi all.
Going to do a top rump roast tomorrow and attempting to do it in the slow cooker for the first time. I have found instructions with timing ranging from 6 hours to 22 hours 5 minutes (don't know why the 5 mins was crucial!). Have any of you good people have any advice regarding cooking times or favourite recipes?


Thank you
Helen

I've done topside in the slow cooker and generally allow 6 - 8 hours on high. It comes out beautifully tender.

6-8 hours is about right on medium=high depends on the cooker.


will be delicious, remember rare isn't an option in a slow cooker though!!!

Wish we'd had a slow cooker when my Dada was alive - false teeth MOD supply so not very good at chewing, and needed his meat practically in liquid form (slight exaggeration  :innocent:)

Seriously though, slow cookers are a wonderful invention and you can get them with bells and whistles too -  mine is a simple soul with 2 heat settings, but there are versions with numerous heat settings, timers, buzzers, and in all shapes and sizes :excited:

Did seven hours on high. It pulled apart rather than carved but it was tender and delicious! I think however I will do six hours mostly on low next time. It was the first time I tried a joint and not stews in the slow cooker. I also had a major achievement; I CAN now make Yorkshire puddings (coming from Yorkshire it was an embarrasing lack!).

As I understand it, joints need to be cooked on high.
