I found this recipe in the booklet that came with my slow cooker (crock pot). Its supposed to be peppered but I opted to marinade my joint overnight instead. I used Karin...'s All Purpose Marinade (Although I used quarter cup sundried tomato infused olive oil and quarter cup chilli infused olive oil instead of regular olive oil). The original recipe uses 8 shallot onions, 4 regular carrots sliced, and 2 parsnips, sliced. But I used red onions, celeriac, and shatanay carrots. I advise you try shatanay carrots as they are so much sweeter than regular ones! I cooked mine for 8 hours on auto and it came out lovely and tender. Please take the gravy granules measurement as an approximation, and add to your taste.
