Ingredients

Beef

  • 1.5kg - 1.7kg Quality Mark beef bolar roast
  • 1/4 cup store-bought dukkah
  • 1 cup beef stock, warmed 
  • 25g butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons plain flour

Oven roasted root vegetables

  • 3 red kumara, peeled
  • 4 parsnips, peeled
  • 4 carrots, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons crème fraîche 
  • or sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped toasted hazelnuts

Method

Preheat the slow cooker for 20 minutes.
 

Beef

Rub the beef with a little oil and the dukkah mix. Place in the preheated slow cooker and pour around the warmed stock. Cover with the lid and cook for 41/2 hours on high or 71/2-81/2 hours on low.

Make a paste with the butter and flour and 30 minutes before the end of cooking, whisk into the juices gathered in the slow cooker to make a sauce for the beef. Continue cooking.

Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 190°C.
 

Oven-roasted root vegetables

Cut the vegetables into long slices lengthwise. Place in a large bowl, toss with a little oil and season. Place in a single layer into a shallow roasting tray. Roast in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until crisp and golden.


To serve

Remove the beef from the slow cooker to a warmed plate and season. Cover loosely with foil and a clean tea towel and leave to rest in a warm place for 20 minutes, before slicing across the grain. Place the roasted vegetables in a shallow dish, top with the crème fraîche and sprinkle over the hazelnuts. Pour the sauce into a warmed jug and serve alongside.
