  1. Turn the slow cooker on. Cut the joint into two pieces. Heat a large frying pan with one tbsp of the oil. Season the meat and sear on all sides. Place in the cooker.
  2. Using the same frying pan heat the remaining oil. Add the onion, season and sauté for 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together.
  3. Pour over the meat and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Do not remove the lid during cooking or it will take longer.
