Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Slow cooker
  • 2kgs boneless beef
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  1. Place beef in the slow cooker
  2. Add halved garlic cloves, pour the balsamic vinegar over the beef and then pour over the maple syrup.
  3. Set slow cooker to cook for 3 - 4 hours on high or 6- 8 hours on low.
  4. You will be able to tell if the meat is ready as it will easily break off with a fork.
  5. Remove the beef from the slow cooker and place onto a large baking/lasagne dish.
  6. Using forks pull apart the roast, then gently pour half a cup of the sauce over the meat.
  7. The sauce has beautiful flavours, so keep it to add as a dressing to the salad.
  8. If you like the meat warmed for your salad, place in a microwave safe bowl and heat. Add rocket and then add about a tablespoon of warmed dressing and toss.
For our family of seven to have a decent amount of left overs, I cook up over 2kgs. The recipe makes a lot, so for smaller families you might need to halve the quantities.
