Slow cooker beef

For this seriously simple crock pot beef recipe I used short ribs, they came out beautifully tender and the sauce was delicious. This is a no fuss, 5 minute preparation and then hours in the slow cooker to tenderise and create a fabulous, full of flavour dinner. Thanks to Knorr and Royco for this one, it just could not be easier. (4 people)

What you need

1.5kg short ribs or 1 kg brisket or any other beef roast
1 Royco roast gravy packet
2 dry Italian dressing mix from Knorr
1 cup water

The process

Mix together the gravy powder and the salad mix.

Place the beef into the slow cooker and sprinkle over the gravy and salad mix.

Pour in the water and set your slow cooker to low. Allow to cook for about 7 or 8 hours. No need to look in on it.

Hell could it be any easier… a weekend must do recipe for winter days.

Try the braised brisket recipe, another superb winter dish.

    Hi Graham, I like the way you are including images of some of the products you use ~ it gives us a good idea of what you really mean.

    I want make this dish so badly, but I can not find the Italian dressing mix? Is there an alternative product I can use or can anybody tell me where I can buy it.

    Hi, can this also be done in the oven?

    • Graham says:

      Hi Leanne, you can do it in the oven. If you have a cast iron pot or a clay pot it works beautifully, otherwise any oven dish big enough with a lid will work. Happy days G

    Very easy, very nice, a bit salty. I doubled up (family of 5) We had it with rice tonight, was very salty and i think it needs more water, but this is still a recipe for keeps – just adjust to your likes…4.5/5

    Hi Graham

    Does the meat have to be in one piece – like a roast – or can it be in slices. Thanks for the great site!!
