When you’re in a rush, we reckon a roast or crockpot is always easiest for family dinners. Slow cooking makes for a fuss-free family meal that’s ready by 5pm when your troops scoot in the door hungry and exhausted. Here is a superb Bolar Roast Beef recipe.

For Slow-cooked Bolar Roast in the crockpot, you will need:

1 1/2 cups red wine
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 kg piece of bolar roast beef
3 tablespoons rice bran oil
1 large onion, quartered
2 carrots, thickly sliced
1 cup sliced mushrooms

How to make Bolar Roast:

Pat the meat dry then brown in the oil in a heavy fry pan. Combine the browned beef, wine, onion, carrots, mushrooms, bay leaf, pepper and garlic, in your slow cooker or crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Thicken meat juices after cooking for a great gravy: a tablespoon of flour or cornflour mixed to a paste with a little extra wine. Serve with creamy mashed potato, minted peas and gravy.

Serves 8

Roasting Tip:
NZ Guild of Foodwriter’s Jan Bilton has advice on roasting the less tender cuts of beef such as bolar, rolled rib, topside and perhaps prime rib: Place in a roasting pan. Baste lean meats often with butter or oil. Roast, 180 degrees C for 30 minutes per 500g. Season with salt, pepper and mustard.
