Pot Roast is a blast from the past, my mother used to cook this and I’ve only slightly adapted her recipe to suit the Slow Cooker. She wasn’t exposed to garlic in her cooking days, but she knew a lot about swedes and other root vegetables.
A tougher cut of beef takes a different style of cooking, long and slow, but the result is much sweeter. Think osso buco.
Put the pot roast in the Slow Cooker in the late morning – it’s ready by teatime.
