About this recipe: The easiest way to make this is with a slow cooker. The beef will fall apart easily with a fork, making it easy to shred. You can put the meat into the slow cooker either fresh or even straight from the freezer. Serve in floury baps or tortillas with shredded lettuce or coleslaw.


Serves: 16 

  • 1.5 to 2kg (4 lb) top rump roasting joint
  • 225ml (8 fl oz) white wine
  • 400g (15 oz) passata
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons Tabasco
  • 3 tablespoons crushed garlic
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch spring onions, chopped
  • 1 small bunch fresh coriander, chopped

I added more passata and less wine, dried oregano and majoram. Was amazing. - 19 Jun 2012


Sauce was a little watery but the meat tasted lovely. Would make it again but thicken the sauce earlier. - 31 Mar 2010
