All of the recipes in the Whole30 Slow Cooker book were created to be as dump-and-go as possible – just arrange or mix everything in the slow cooker, close the lid, push the button and you’re out the door. But this is one case where quickly browning the meat makes a big difference in the final result. Not only does browning caramelize the meat’s natural sugars – infusing the stew with rich flavor – but it also avoids the protein bits that slough off raw meat during cooking and cloud the sauce.

Deliciously rich oxtail stew recipe, with oxtails braised in red wine and stock, with onions, parsnips, and carrots.
Have you ever had oxtails? Most people I know haven’t even heard of them, which is really quite a shame. Think braised beef short ribs, but with even more flavor, and you’ll get a sense of why those of us who eat oxtail get dreamy eyed when we think about them.
Yes oxtails come from a steer’s tail—a well exercised muscle, marbled with fat. The segments are vertebrae so they have lots of iron-rich marrow as well.
My father, who grew up during the Depression, remembers oxtails as being food for people with little Read More
This is oh, so simple, but oh, so good. Great if you’re organised and can leave the steaks in the marinade the day before you need them, but failing that, a few hours will do. The recipe was created specially to serve with Aligot (mashed potatoes with garlic and cheese), but it needs two to eat and two to cook: one to do the steaks and one to whip the potatoes!
Put the steaks in the shallow dish or polythene box, then mix the red wine, Worcestershire sauce and garlic together and pour this over the steaks. Cover with clingfilm or put the lid on, then place in the fridge Read More

(Or how to barbeque meat for the rest of us)
To “braai” or barbeque (Bar-B-Q) meat is a South African tradition. We usually do it once or twice a week, probably more. It’s a chance to get your friends and/or family together, sip some wine or down a couple of cold ones.
In this Instructable, I am going to show you how, with a little preparation and some scientific genius, you can “braai” like an expert and serve up the most succulent meat.
What you will need:
Some red meat, preferably rump, fillet or sirloin. I got rump.
Some Pineapple juice
Some Balsamic Vinegar
