What brand do you have? I know some people with Tesco ones found they ran really fast even on the low setting.

Have you tried other meats to see how it works with them?

What I've always been told is that meats which need slow cooking i.e the cheaper cuts on the whole, go through a tough stage, to a tender stage and then back to tough. I'd say it's over cooked. Surprised that happened in a slow cooker though.

I'm 99 per cent sure that that rule applies to oven slow cooking. I normally calculate for an 8 hr max. slow cook - any longer I put it on the lower setting on my slow cooker. This may not be the right answer though as never tested it beyond 8 hrs on normal setting!!!!

i have the morphy richards one and an old tower slow cooker which i havent tried yet, but i have tried lots of different kinds of beef with no luck!:(
What cuts of beef are you using?
And have you tried other meats eg a whole chicken?

Not all cuts are suitable for slow cooking - you need the tougher ones rather than prime cuts
