A great piece of meat, for sharing and packed with flavour.
We realised that what makes christmas so great, is family. So what better way to bring in the seventh day than with my lovely mother ( Angi) and her delicious recipe for slow cooked beef. The pull apart beef is one of my absolute favourites and she usually cooks it in a large pressure cooker, but you can cook it in a large pot ( just for longer!). As I scribed down the recipe, and learnt her little tricks I realised how much of my love for cooking comes from my mother's great culinary skills.
Her cooking is homely, and familiar it is full of flavour and love. I hope to one day pass on all her delicious recipes to a family of my own. So I'm glad I now know how to make this favourite dish of mine, and am so excited to be sharing it with you all.
The divine beef dish calls for a cut of round steak, a lean piece of meat that is often slow cooked and can dry out if roasted or grilled.
So the below is really the perfect way to prepare the gorgeous piece of beef.
My mother likes to have everything chopped and ready to go before placing the beef in the pot, so that it's super quick and easy.
