Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat 2 tbsp sunflower oil in a large pan. Dust 1½ kg rolled beef brisket with 2 tbsp plain flour and season well with salt and pepper.

  • STEP 2

    Put 3 chopped carrots, 3 chopped celery sticks, 2 chopped parsnips, 1 chopped onion and 80g button mushrooms in the bottom of your slow cooker and turn it to Low.

  • STEP 3

    Sear the beef all over in the hot pan then place it on top of the vegetables in the slow cooker.

  • STEP 4

    Add the 2 bay leaves, 2 crushed garlic cloves and 2 tsp English mustard then pour over 500ml red wine and 250ml beef stock. Cover with the lid and cook for 7 hours.

  • STEP 5

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Carefully take the beef out of the slow cooker and place it on a baking tray then roast it in the oven for 20 mins.

  • STEP 6

    While the beef is in the oven, carefully ladle the cooking liquid out of the slow cooker into a shallow pan. Boil rapidly on a high heat to reduce to a rich gravy.

  • STEP 7

    Serve the beef sliced with roast potatoes, the softened vegetables, gravy and wilted greens, if you like.
