    cooking roast beef in slow cooker

    I've borrowed my mum's slow cooker to try out before I buy one. So I thought today I'd cook a roast. Yes I know, a little late. But I have no idea how to do it in the sc. It's a 1.2kg roast. Any ideas/recipes? I've never used a slow cooker before. And is there any way it'll cook in time for tonight's dinner?

    Ever so slowly going crazy...

    Yep. There is recipe in the slow cooker thread.

    Just chuck in your roast, a can of coke and a bottle of tomato sauce, and cook on low for 5-6 hrs.
    I've done it twice now, and the meat just falls off....

    you can just put it all in dry too. It may not brown up the same as a normal oven but will still taste great.

    I put it in dry and cooked it for about 8 hours and it turned out really dry. But great in gravey with onions!!! Might try the coke and tomato sauce
