Do you need any tips for slow cooked beef? Then check this out! Slow cooked beef is considered by many people one of the most exquisite meals in the history of Italian cuisine. Its cooking method is often preferred over others (frying, boiling, etc.).
What do we mean by slow cooking? Generally, slow cooking means any food preparation method which relies on using low-heat for a long amount of time. One of its major benefits is that food becomes incredibly tender, as all of its connective tissues break down. That’s why so many people love using barbecues! Specifically, slow cooking refers to the slow-cooker, which is a counter-top set-up consisting of a ceramic bowl (electronically heated) and a glass lid. It has low, medium and high settings. It’s a simple and effective process of cooking food, made for convenience. This automatic process means that you won’t need to worry if you’re out for work or other things.

How to slow cook beef
If you’re short on time in the morning, make sure to prepare what you need for your slow-cooked meal the night before, then put it into the slow-cooker dish, cover and store in the fridge for the night. Get it out of the fridge when you wake up and live it for half an hour before turning the cooker on.
Avoid filling it with too much liquid, as it should just cover the meat and vegetables. You don’t need to add oil, nor to use a lot of fat on your meat.
