Dump Bag / Slow Cooker Beef Ragu

00DifficultyBeginner

This is the best way I have found to make beef ragu in the slow cooker. I don't like to use mince in the slow cooker if I can't brown it first which kinda defeats the purpose of using the slow cooker in my eyes! So by using a chunk of beef and then shredding it once cooked we eliminate that issue
