  • 4 lb beef chuck rump or bottom round roast
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 plums pitted and cut in half, see NOTES
  • 1 cup hoisin sauce
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 tbs oil


  • Heat the oil in a large skillet and brown roast on all sides.
  • Lay chopped onion in the bottom of a slow cooker--a 5 quart/5 liter or larger.
  • Place browned roast on top of the onions then mix the hoisin sauce with the water and pour it over the roast. Top roast with plums.
  • Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hours, high 4-6 hours. Times are approximate depending on your slow cooker as they all differ slightly.


You can substitute prunes for the fresh plums, but use only 3, cut in half.
