1. Easy to Prepare and Cost Effective
Despite the name, slow-cooked roast meat is very easy to prepare and go easy on your pocket. When cooking meats on a low temperature for a long period of time meat will tenderise, making sure that you get the best taste out of any cut you choose.
Most of the slow cooking recipes you’ll find require no complicated equipment. Although a slow cooker will surely help, many recipes will only require an oven and can be quickly prepared in a single dish, meaning less cleaning for you!

2. Bring the best taste out of any cut meat
Ever wondered what makes a heart Sunday roast so delicious?
The longer the time taken for the meat to cook, the more proteins you allow to melt and this adds an incredible flavour to your dish while keeping the meat moist as it cooks.
It is a must for slow cooked meats to be cooked in a liquid like broth, water or sauce as suggested by the recipe you’re following. However, by searing the meat for a few seconds in a dry pan till the surface of the meat is slightly golden you can release a unique complexity of aromas.
3. Roasts are the perfect way to try out the meats you might usually shy away from
With slow cooking, preparing the tougher cuts such as brisket, chuck steak or pork shoulder has never been easier. While these meats might not give the best results when cooked on the grill, they transform into fork-tender pieces exploding with flavour when roasted slowly.
