One of the easiest ways to cook a roast (Round, Eye of Round, Rump or Cross Rib) is in the slow cooker! The low heat over a prolonged period of time makes the beef tender and ‘fall apart’.
Even easier than cooking a roast in the slow cooker? Cooking a roast from FROZEN in the slow cooker. The easiest way to do this is over night from 9pm - 9am. 12 hours to slow cook makes the perfect roast for pulling!

Minute Steaks are a cut of either the top round or the top sirloin that are pre- tenderized and flattened by a meat tenderizer. The tenderizing breaks down the muscle fibres, giving the steak their characteristic appearance and making them more tender then the original cut. They need to be cooked quickly, because they’re so thin, to retain the moisture and avoid going tough. Literally, all that’s needed is a MINUTE!
We are currently sold out of our Sirloin, New York's, Tenderloin's and Ribeye Steaks... HOWEVER we still have plenty of Round Roasts, which are super easy to cut down into your very own steaks!
To Cook your Perfect Hamburger all you need to Mitchell Bros. Ground Beef, either a BBQ or a Cast Iron Pan, Butter, and Salt n Pepper
Short Ribs are a cut of beef taken from the brisket, chuck, plate, or rib areas of beef cattle. They consist of a short portion of the rib bone, which is overlain by meat which varies in thickness. We normally braise our Short Ribs so we thought we'd shake it up, with a homemade BBQ Sauce in the slow cooker!
Mineral and nutrient dense bone broth is comprised of nose to tail animal bones, which boil for several hours (8-24) in order to create a rich, thick broth that has many medicinal capacities. It nourishes the digestive system, detoxification mechanisms of the body, fills the stomach without weight gain, heals the gut, and is an anti-inflammatory
The biggest rule for cooking Grass Fed, Grass Finished Beef is LOW AND SLOW. Which means that, because of the beef is leaner/has less fat, you need to make sure that you are cooking it at a lower temperature and for a longer time then you would normally cook conventional beef. Otherwise, you end up over cooking the meat, it loses it's texture, flavour and becomes tough, chewy and not the amazing Mitchell Bros. Beef you've come to expect.
HOWEVER, we have been experimenting using an electric pressure cooking for our Roasts. The combo of heat + pressure helps to gently break down the fibres in our cuts that typically take hours in the oven at a lower temperature. We highly recommend using this technique if you are: short on time, want an easy/quick way to cook your beef, or want to cook from frozen.
This recipe is inspired by Stanley A. Fishman from his book Tender Grass-fed Meat - Traditional Ways to Cook Healthy Meat
We have searched high and low for the best techniques for preparing our specialty product. Until just after WWII, the only beef available was grass finished beef so we really have to go back before then and see how it was done! Stanley has done the research for us and today we tried his technique for an English Style Prime Rib Roast.
The Cross Rib Roast is from the shoulder area of the animal. The meat can be very tender with exceptional flavour but you have to contend with sinew going through the roast. These roasts respond very well to any type of braise or ‘low and slow’ moist heat method. We have had excellent results wit the following dry method as well. It is well worth a try!
The only way to prepare Short Ribs is to braise them. You won’t be disappointed! Make sure to enjoy with crusty bread or a delicious Parsnip Puree.
