Roast Beef

bailey25, Feb 12, 6:39pm
Hi, so I can cook amazing roast lamb, pork and chicken but for some reason my roast beef is never quite right. I have a beautiful bolar roast (homekill) that I want to cook up this week, either by slow cooker or roasting. Please give me your tips, clues and ideas, thanks so much. I do have a meat thermometer too if that helps, a friend bought it for me solely for when I cook beef but I haven't as yet used it.

Bolar blade is excellent done in an oven bag.or the slow cooker.I tend to put a powder sachet of a beef mix in shake to coat the meat and when it cook edand you open the oven bag you have this delicious gravy. Ive cooked this in the past and its tender enough to be passed off as a beef fillet

We have a Webber BBQ & we cook roasts on it & comes out really nice. Takes about 2 hours.

I cook bolar roasts in an oven bag too. Rub it with mustard, pepper and salt, squirt of soy sauce and a little bit of water.

Maggi Beef recipe bases either stroganoff or bourguignon.these are a dry mixture as oppossed to ones that are liquid.Hope that makes sense

Thanks yes do you normally do it in an oven bag in the slower cooker ? Thanks

Yes I do because when you split the bag open all the lovely gravy is in the bag. Its so tender and yummy
