Serves: 4 


  • Joint of meat or fowl to fit cooker


  1. Put joint (beef, lamb, pork, ham) or fowl either fresh or frozen, in slow cooker and switch on. Leave 6 to 8 hours at medium or low, depending on the slow cooker.
  2. After that time joint will be cooked and there will be plenty of meat juices to make delicious gravy.
  3. Heat oven to high. Put meat on to a baking dish and sear it for about five minutes to brown or crisp fat before resting and serving.


Putting meat dry, or frozen, in the slow cooker means there is nothing but pure meat juices to make gravy, use in soup etc. If you wish to add vegetables you can do.
