Pulled Beef

  • 1 - 1.5 kg beef bolar roast
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 1/2 cups (680g) passata tomato puree
  • 1 cup (250ml) beef stock/ broth
  • 1/3 cup (80ml) olive oil
  • 3 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 3 tsp sweet paprika
  • 3 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Pinch good quality salt
  • 3 large sweet potatoes


  • 1/4 purple cabbage, finely shredded
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup coconut yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1/8 tsp dry mustard powder


  • Place garlic, tomato puree, stock, olive oil, apple cider vinegar and spices into a slow cooker (or deep roasting tray) and combine well. 
  • Place beef into marinade and cook in slow cooker on low for 6 hours (or cover roasting tray and cook in a slow equivalent oven) or until meat is tender and pulls apart easily. Add a pinch of good quality salt to your liking. 
  • In final 60 minutes of cooking time, slice sweet potato into 1/2cm thick rounds and brush both sides with olive oil. Place onto a lined baking tray and bake in oven for 30 minutes each side or until golden and tender. 
  • Meanwhile, prepare coleslaw by combining all ingredients well. Set aside in fridge until ready to serve. 
  • Once meat is tender remove from heat and use two forks to shred meat and stir through the remaining sauce. 
  • Assemble sliders by layering a slice of sweet potato with coleslaw, shredded meat and top with another sweet potato slice to create a burger (use short skewers to hold together if needed). 


Recipe Tips:
  • The quantities to make the pulled beef make a generous amount.
