Chocolate Roast Beef
This recipe is of my own creation (at least I think it is), if you love a roast in a crockpot and you love chocolate you're going to really like this one. My roast was 2.5kg but I think you could use this same recipe for just about any size roast beef, you'll just have more sauce for smaller roasts is all.
What you will need:
1 tablespoon garlic powder (or 1 clove fresh minced garlic)
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon oregano
1 tablespoon cinnamon
2 heaping tablespoons of good quality coco
1/3 cup vinegar
3/4 cup apple juice
1/3 olive oil
In a bowl combine everything but the vinegar and still until its mixed in well. Put the roast in the crockpot and drizzle the vinegar over the roast, then add the sauce over top. Cook on low for at least 8 hours (I put mine on at 9am and eat at 6pm). The beef will be so soft so careful taking it out, let it stand on the cutting board for 10-15 min. you can slice but I prefer to pull the meat with two forks going in opposite directions to give that stringy look. This meat will be super juicy and have a nice deep flavour to it.
ENJOY! Love Ally
PS save the sauce and left overs for a stew; Just add in some water, vegetables the sauce and left over meat and you'll have another awesome meal.
