Beef in the Slow Cooker..

Does anybody know if I have to put a joint of beef on those "foil balls" when cooking it in the slow cooker? I've seen it mentioned when cooking a whole chicken, I just wondered whether the same rule applies to all meat so it doesn't sit in the juices/fat all day!

Sit it on some half cut onions and some sticks of celery - the beef absorbs the flavour and its yummy!!!

i never have sometimes sit it on some onions gives it a nice flavour:)

May sound stupid but gonna ask anyway, :confused: do you put any stock in at all? I have a small slow cooker from lakeland which is perfect for 1, can't get a whole chicken in it but could do small joints, have always assumed (and we all know what a that is :rolleyes:) you had to put stock in.

I put a little stock in mine, just to add to the flavour. I also put it on a bed on onions, carrots, celery and garlic.
