Donkey sauce I hear you ask? I made it for the first time last night and had it with leftover beef brisket on a brioche bun.
- 2 kg rib eye fillet roast (rolled and tied)
- 1 turnip (diced)
- 1 potato (diced)
- 1 Hawaiian sweet potato (diced)
- 1 onion (diced)
- 1 carrot (diced)
- 2 stalks celery (sliced)
- 1 cup wine
- 1 cup stock
- spring onions (sliced)
- Parsley (chopped)
- Lime zest
- Caramelised onion
- Donkey sauce
In the slow cooker vessel add the onion, carrot, celery, potato, turnip and sweet potato and then pour in the wine and stock. It doesn’t really matter what wine and stock you use.
Place the rolled rib eye fillet on top of the vegetables and then place the slow cooker vessel into the body of the slow cooker and turn on for eight hours.
After eight hours prepare a salad of tomato, lettuce and spring onion with some parsley too.
Open the slow cooker and lift out the beef. Allow the beef to rest covered with aluminium foil for fifteen minutes.
After the beef has rested, carve the rolled roast into three even portions. Vacuum pack and seal two portions and place in the freezer for later enjoyment.
Place the remaining portion into a shallow bowl and the plate up with the salad. Add a good portion of donkey sauce to meat and a couple of tablespoons of caramelised onion.
Garnish with chopped parsley and lime zest.
Shoot a photograph and then enjoy the sumptuousness that is 8-hour slowly cooked rib eye fillet roast.
Wash the dishes.
Write the recipe and blog hoping people who read this will share it on social media, especially on their Facebook pages and Twitter accounts.
This dish will satisfy you and make you happy enough to smile just at the thought of it. Meat is good.
Frequently asked questions
Why do you like slowly cooking beef so much?
I love the flavour but mostly the texture of the muscle bundles separating with little effort and that cutting across the grain is almost effortless with a good knife which means chewing is a joy.

Why do you eat so much?
It’s a weakness. I must stop eating so much.
