Nanny’s Braised Steak 5 0 5 82

Melt in your mouth tender steak in a gravy that will make you literally want to lick your plate!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs
  • 15 mins

    5 hrs

    5 hrs 15 mins

  • Yields: 5

Ingredients

1kg Oyster Blade steak (or any affordable casserole style steak)

3 tablespoons of creamy bottle style mild American mustard

3 tablespoons of brown sugar

2 heaped tablespoons of plain flour

Salt and Pepper

1/2 cup of tomato sauce/ketchup (I used low sugar but you can use regular)

1/8 cup of soy sauce (I use reduced salt but you can use regular)

1 large brown onion thin sliced

(2 large plastic freezer bags)

Directions

1Add mustard and sugar to a freezer bag

2Add raw steaks to this bag and toss and rub around to coat the steaks with the mustard/sugar mix

3In a second freezer bag add flour and season with salt and pepper

4Tip steak from the first bag into the second flour bag and toss around to dust them with the flour mix

5Remove steaks from bag and lay them in slow cooker (single file if you are able to)

6Top with sliced onion

7Combine the sauces and pour over the steaks

8Cook on LOW for 5hrs

Notes

1Serve with vegetables and mash and pour over the lush gravy

2You do not need to add any water to this dish 🙂 That's not a typo. However some have been adding half a cup so that's up to you but it really doesn't need it

3This was one of my favourite recipes I remember my mum cooking as a child and if she was here now I'm sure she'd be so proud to see her recipe represented here for you all to try - enjoy! xx

Great recipe. Hubby loved it too & actually licked the plate! Sauce was quite rich though.

This second time I followed the recipe and cooked it on low for eight hours I doubled the sauce mixture. I still had to add water to stop it from burning as per the first time I cooked it. Was delicious again.

The gravy was super yummy!
A new family favourite to add to the repertoire

Made this tonight for my family and absolutely loved it. Will definitely become a regular dish in our home

Hahaha LOVE this feedback

Mr 18 months took one look at this and decided he didn’t like it. Cue the crying. Eventually he gave in and tried it. Cue more crying because he liked it. He went on to finish all the leftovers.

Made this with diced beef. Threw all the wet ingredients into the bowl, mixed in the flour then the beef. Mixed until the meat was well covered. Put some carrot and turnip and swede in with it. Plugged it in and went to work. Came home to the most amazing stew. Served with mash – a winner.

Love this recipe. I find it a little easier to put the flour and the mustard/brown sugar on plates instead of the freezer bags. I find this recipe also perfect to leave all day without issue.

I don’t eat a lot of meat and cannot remember the last time I ate red meat, for that reason. It is usualy my least favourite.

After reading all the reviews for this recipe, i gave it a try. AMAZING.

I used no-sugar-added tomato sauce and American mustard. I used Coconut Aminos, which is a soy sauce alternative.

As others have mentioned, it doesn’t seem to have enough sauce when you first put it in. But the finished product is super saucey!

After it was cooked, i folded cooked veggies in- sweet potato, carrots, beans, peas and zuchini. This also helped bulk up the serving size.

I will serve it in a bowl of fresh spinach.

This recipe will now be one of my go-tos!

I made this last night for the first time. I used diced beef instead of steak and stirred in a heap of microwave cooked vegetables at the end (potato, sweet potato, pumpkin, carrot and peas) and it was amazing! A huge hit in our house which is really saying something as my family are very hard to please. Thankyou for an awesome recipe!

Made this delicious dish using gravy beef! Cooked for seven hours on low and next time I would cook it for eight hrs as it was a wee bit tough. Had to add some water as it was drying out at the start. Will make again.

Fiona Jackson

July 27, 2017

Made this tonight. Hubby said it was that good, it could be served in any Pub.
This is definitely a winner in our house.

Jan Dobson

Made this today for the second time. It is a wonderful easy dish and went down well with everyone, clean plates all round! Though I did cook it for 6 hours as I wasn’t home to switch it off after 5. Will be a regular dish in our household 🙂

Tracey Davies

July 22, 2017

Glorious tasting recipe. Cleaned the plate. A real favourite, will be cooking this one regularly!

Made this for the first time. Mmmmmmm unbelievably good.

Jamie Birch

Made this for my mother and father today & all I can say is that I loved it! Ma & pa did too but mum said she didn’t like the taste of the tomato sauce as it was too strong for her, but my dad and I didn’t even notice it! Super yummy! I added maybe 1/4cup of beef stock xxxx

Sherrie Vigar

July 17, 2017

Wow what a deeeelicious dish!!! Thank you, I am in love with my slow cooker again 😍😍

Delish absolutely delish! Lick your plate delish! I can’t put my finger on it, but I was transported back to my Grandma’s cooking. Highly recommended.

Made ‘Nanny’s Braised Steak’ for dinner tonight. I’d never tried it before, but wanted dinner time to be super easy so I put in 5 small unpeeled potatoes (halved) and 2 carrots, chopped (in large pieces). The vegetables cooked really well and I just served with boiled peas . Unfortunately, I personally found it to be very, very sweet so I would cut the sugar down to one tbsp (or less) if you aren’t big on sugar. I put in 1 tbsp of apple cider vinegar and would probably do that again next time. I found the onions to be a little under-cooked for my liking too, so I might put them in under the beef next time. The method produced lovely, tender meat, but I wasn’t very keen on the flavour of the sauce so I think next time I will use a beef stock cube dissolved in 1/2 cup water, 1/3 cup tomato paste, 1/4 cup soy sauce, 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (for taste and to further tenderise the meat) and some herbs spices (and maybe a tbsp or two of mustard). I will put the onions under the meat, still coat the meat in seasoned flour and add a little water towards the end of cooking time if I find there is not enough gravy. I would cook for 6 hours too.

Loved this recipe Pauline! Definitely a favourite in the household…I doubled the sauce ingredients as we preferred more of the sauce couldn’t get enough of it…I also did 2T of brown sugar and still tastes great!

Yvan J Drake

Made this today (with seeded mustard).

Mindblowing. Definitely going into the regular roster.

Michelle

So so good will be on the weekly menu for now on #winning

Melissa Jacobs

Wow! Absolutely amazing!! Looove this! Like others I resisted the urge to add water … honestly, trust the method! It’s perfect!!

Cherie

July 8, 2017

Sorry but I didn’t really like this, it tastes like beef and tomato sauce. So not worth the wait.
It made my house stink.

CathyC

July 6, 2017

Very nice! halved the recipe as there is only two of us 🙂 not quite as much sauce as I imagined, but flavour was lovely. Happy to make this again, but will add just a little bit of water towards the end next time.

angelica Lichtnerova

July 6, 2017

Love recipe. I didnt real the entire recipe before starting but it turned out lovely. and I used Spring onion instead of normal onion. Hubby had 2 extra helpings, used bread to get the last gravy out of the SC and he isnt a big eater! A favourite in this house

Taneesha Williams

July 5, 2017

Absolutely delicious!
I am a very fussy eater and am hesitant to try new things but this was hands down one of the best dishes I’ve made!
It was so delicious my 8 month old ate half of mine (definitely making double next time)

Felicity Barnett

Has become a firm favourite and regular that I try and have at least 2 dump bags for it in the freezer 🙂

Due to allergies we switch the mustard for a 1/4-1/2 tspn of mustard powder and use Coconut Aminos sauce instead of Soy.
We also alter the method a little instead of tossing the steak in the flour and then in the sugar and mustard we add them to the sauce mix, so my daughter can put it on without me having to clean the whole kitchen 🙂

We also tried it as a dump bag and it was just as good as the first time we had it.
Place all ingredients in bag except the flour and freeze.
Add a tblspn of cornflour with some water when putting it on and stir through.

Thanks Paulene 🙂

This is so yummy, little ingredients so much flavour.

This meal is great, I found alittle sweet but i’m a diabetic..

Dee Hargreaves

Yum! Will be doing this one again.
Big hit for non eating steak teenager.

Tamika Hicking

July 2, 2017

Ahhhmazing!!! Both monsters also devoured it and mr 5 is very fussy!! Yummo thankyou!!!

Nikita

July 2, 2017

Wow! This was so good! Very rich too, I thought it may have needed a bit of water as it didn’t look like there was enough sauce, but I resisted, the end result was so saucy that I used bread to soak it up! Will definitely be making this again!

P.s I used chuck steak and diced it up.

Yes you can
I prefer a more fattier kind of cut …with a little marbling through the meat …to make a lovely tender result but rump will work still just not as moist

Tara smith

June 30, 2017

Is rump steak ok to use?

Naomi

June 30, 2017

This is the best thing we’ve ever made in our slow cooker. The steak melted in your mouth and the sauce was delicious. Can’t wait to cook it again. Didn’t have any mustard so used dijonnaise instead and it worked great

Sure 🙂

Belinda

June 27, 2017

I only have mild English mustard at the moment, can I use this as a substitute?

Anna Marson

June 25, 2017

I made this last night for the first time and it was a hit!…. the whole family loved it! Thank you so much for sharing. I will be making this again and again 🙂

Vanessa Aggett

June 25, 2017

Made this tonight for the first time and wow. It was the best thing I’ve eaten that came from the slow cooker so far! I used dijon mustard. Perfect.

Janna

June 23, 2017

I used whole grain mustard and djon mustard and added fresh mushrooms in the last hour was so delish even my fussy kids loved this thank you

Penny

June 21, 2017

OMG what a delightful meal. Family loved this. Will definitely make again.

Tara

June 21, 2017

This deserves 10+ stars! Most amazing slow cooker meal I’ve made! Yummy yummy in my tummy! Will be a regular in our house 😍

Emma

June 21, 2017

We love this recipe! If you want to know what it tastes like before cooking, it is technically a BBQ sauce recipe, so very similar flavours. Others have complained about the sauce being too strong, we find adding an extra tablespoon of sugar softens the flavours and it tastes more like ‘ribs’. Others say its too sugary, so you could use low sugar tomato sauce and half the sugar.

Karen Deane

June 21, 2017

My talents with the SC are limited to chilli and spag bog. I haven’t had much success with other recipes. I tried this and I think I failed again. The onions weren’t cooked, the steak wasn’t fall apart, the sauce was quite thick and not very gravy like. The taste was good though so I’m keen to try it again and see if I can cook it better with different cuts of meat or longer.

Kelly

June 19, 2017

Love this recipe. To die for…..

Tamika Jamison

June 19, 2017

Oh my goodness Paulene! Made this tonight and clean plates all round! My 10 year old son usually takes forever eating dishes like this but he absolutely wolfed this one down! You know you’re onto a good thing if this happens!

Laura

June 19, 2017

Thank you <3 we made it and it was Devine! I ended out doubling the sauce as there just wasn't enough for our liking, but it was sooooo yummy! Will definitely be making it again!!

That will be great
Just keep an eye on it during cooking as being emptier it will cook hotter and could dry out but you should be fine 🙂

I leave them whole but it would be ok to cut them 🙂

No. If I use one I’ll always say so 🙂

Laura

June 19, 2017

I only have cubed stir fry pieces of beef, would that still work? And I think there’s only about 500grams there but we like our sauce so would it be ok to keep the same amount of sauce?
Will be cooking in a 6L slow cooker 😁

Katrina stubbs

June 18, 2017

Do you leave the steak whole or cut it up?

Kate Dennis

June 18, 2017

Do you use the tea towel method or not for this recipe?

Fiona MacKenzie

June 18, 2017

Another BIG hit.
Am under instructions to make it again

Elizabeth Gomez

June 17, 2017

If you’re not sure they’re telling the truth… they are!!! This is the most amazing tasting thing I think I’ve ever cooked!!! Nanny, you are a genius!!!

I added carrots about an hour in and mushrooms with an hour to go. Served with steamed broccoli and sour cream and chive mashed potato.

Amy McDonald

Ceri Blythe

June 11, 2017

Lovely dish and enjoyed by all. The only thing I will change next time (and I will be making it again) is to reduce the amount of sugar.

This dish was so much better than expected! It was a big hit in our house and even my fussy daughter who doesn’t like any meat except sausages and chicken ate every little bit off her plate!

Sandy L

June 7, 2017

I was tentative making this as I’m not a huge fan of mustard, but I’m converted!

Melissa Zirilli

June 3, 2017

Put this on before I went to work yesterday afternoon for hubby’s tea. Hubby said that we have to make this again as he absolutely loved it and he has added the recipe to our favourites list. I had a taste when I got home from work and OMG it was yum, definitely will be making it again. I didn’t sear any of the meat, just threw it all into the sc as per recipe, so simple in easy

Tracey Thorpe

June 1, 2017

Hubby says it’s one of the best meals I’ve cooked. Told him credit goes to Paulene’s mum. He gave me the oddest look….as he mopped his plate of sauce with bread 😊
Beautiful and perfect blend of flavours.
Absolute hit in this house.
Thanks Nanny…and Paulene .

May 25, 2017

This was my first ever Slow Cooker cooking experience and even though my slow cooker broke down and it ended up taking me 2 days to make before I could purchase another slow cooker, it was well worth it! The meal was beautiful, heaps of flavour, ever so tender and really very easy to make. If I can make this then anyone can but it also shows how putting the right ingredients together gives a meal the perfect taste. I’ll definitely be making this again!

Tracy Walsh

May 24, 2017

This was so delicious . I was worried I put it in too late so I cooked on high for 1.5 hrs then low for 3.5 hrs. I used 5 oyster blade steaks so I had to stack them a bit to fit them in the slow cooker. It was perfect. My kids asked me to make it again so is definitely a new favourite in our house.

Liz

May 24, 2017

absolutely delicious,,cooked it with double the sauce to soak up the veggies ,will be having it many times over

Alison

May 24, 2017

One word – YUM!!!
I used chuck steak which I browned along with sauteed onions for this and the end result was simply delicious. Give this one a go, you won’t regret it 😊

shiralee

May 22, 2017

Absolutely lovely this recipe. Your mum would have been proud.

I need to cook this on high, and the meat is frozen. Is this ok?

Sherene Gibbons

May 22, 2017

Made this for the first time the other night and WOW, so warming and comforting and really packed a punch in flavour. Will definitely be making this again……and again……..and again………

Brenda Callaghan

May 21, 2017

I made this the other night 🙂
OMG!!!!!
It is so scrummy – tender, delicious, and just a hint of mustard
Will be making it again this week 🙂
Ta so much for sharing such a mouth watering recipe 🙂 x

Nicola carruthers

May 21, 2017

Simply delicious & the whole family loved it!
I used rump steak & wholegrain mustard instead of the American style.
I did have to layer the meat in a smaller size slow cooker but at 5hrs on low it was cooked through.
I will definitely be making this again!!

Sarah Anderson

May 21, 2017

This was devine!! I used cubed meat, 2nds all around

Kylie Handley

May 18, 2017

This meal is a winner in my house. I did add a chilli because I really like my spicy food 🙂 Will definitely be making this again……thanks for sharing your mums delicious recipe Paulene x

Keep the same ingredients but being not as full keep an eye on time as it will be done sooner in an emptier cooker as it will cook hotter 🙂

Don’t see why not? 🙂

I made this for dinner a few nights ago and it was a winner! 4 out of 5 kids in this house a pretty picky eaters and they all loved it 😀. It was so quick and easy to prepare. I’ll definitely be making this again.

Shannon

Fantastic Dish! Wish definitely be making this again! Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe 😊

Karen Stuckings

May 14, 2017

My daughter made this for us for Mother’s Day dinner. She wanted to me say that she has aspergers and found recipe very easy to follow. We substituted slice onion with 1 teaspoon of onion powder owing to texture issues with onions. The sauce was lovely and thick with great flavour. We served with chips. Will be making this again

Colleen Arnott

May 14, 2017

Delicious dish! We all wanted to lick our plates clean. My slow cooker runs a bit slower than I’d like so I ended up having it on for an extra 1 & 1/2 hours with the last 2 hours on high. I will factor this in to my calculations next time and there definitely will be a next time….many next times in fact. Thank you so much!

Melanie Bartsch

May 14, 2017

I made this tonight with chicken breast instead of steak. I also only had Australia Mustard, and also had to substitute about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce with Passata because I ran out of sauce. Seriously delicious! Although I didn’t exactly honour your Mum’s recipe, she was definitely a legend leaving you that gem. <3

Cori

May 13, 2017

Can i do this with 500 grams instead of 1kg please? Will it change the cooking time at all, I have a 6 litre slow cooker? I’m happy to keep other quantities as we love gravy. Thanks 🙂

Natasha Heymer

May 13, 2017
