Balsamic Roast Beef

This slow-cooked beef is very versatile - serve it with roast veg or mash, stir it through pasta or add it to salads. We enjoyed it on flat bread with corn and cabbage slaw.


1 beef brisket roast
1 tbs olive oil
1 small brown onion, peeled and quartered
1 cup beef stock
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 tbs soy sauce
1½ tsp garlic, minced
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp salt

balsamic roast beef on flatbread

  1. Heat the oil in a large frypan and sear the brisket over medium-high heat until browned all over.
  2. Place the meat and onion in a slow cooker, the fatty layer of the brisket should be on top.
  3. Whisk together all the remaining ingredients and pour over the meat. Slow cook for 8 hours on low setting, or 4 hours on high.
  4. Once the meat is cooked, peel off the fat layer and discard. Remove the beef, shred with two forks and pile on a plate.
  5. Place any remaining liquid into a small saucepan and reduce to make a gravy to pour on the beef.
