Easy Slow Cooked Beef

I have had lots of requests for more slow cooker meals, especially from mums who want to prepare dinner before they leave for work. Therefore, I’m going to use my slow cooker as much a possible over the next few months and share as many recipes as I can, if I have enough inspiration I will put them in book format for you too.
