10 Best Slow-Cooked Beef Recipes

Eid Al Adha is synonymous with hearty lamb roasts, savoury lamb kebabs and filling shredded curries. But wait, what if you’re not a fan of lamb? Does that mean Eid Al Adha isn’t fun for you anymore? Not really. There’s always beef.

Meaty and juicy beef cuts, especially the fattier parts, are excellent candidates for slow-cooker recipes. And you know the deal with slow-cookers. Anything to do with 5-8 hours crock pot cooking means ultimate comfort food. The slow cooker is amazing for long slow braises for meat where you can literally just throw the roast into the slow cooker in the morning and let it cook all day long, completely unattended!

In case you don’t enjoy lamb or are simply looking to add some variety to your Eid Al Adha buffet, we have shortlisted 8 slow-cooked beef recipes. From shredded beef barbecue and pot roasts to slow cooked steaks and stews, you'll find a sure-shot crowd-pleaser in this list.
