Never done rump steak in SC before so thought I’d give it a go since it was supermarket quality. 4hrs in on low was worried, was still like an old boot, so bumped SC up for an hour on high then returned to low. 6 hrs in total….made the cornflour slurry after emptying sauce into saucepan, dished up, w mashed potato, carrots and coleslaw and OMG….it was delicious. Hubby gave me a 12/10 and he doesn’t usually like SC meals, and the fat on the rump was rendered to perfection, so much so, that this was exceptional, considering I always cut the fat off whatever meat under frypan cooking. Well worth the cook and wait. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Not a mushroom fan but decided to try this last week and omg 😍😍😍 absolutely 😋 even the kids enjoyed eating this sooo making it again tonight 😱😍😍😘

Why not choose a non mushroom recipe 🙂

Made this tonight for hubby and daughter, they loved it but unfortunately I used porterhouse steak and it was way too tough. Will definitely try again with rump. A+++

Thanks so much for your help, Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central. This is cooking right now, cannot wait to taste it….looks so good.

Hi Linda 🙂
Here’s all the info you need here on The Tea Towel Trick

Sorry I am new to this site.
The recipe says to place a tea towel under the lid. May I ask how exactly and why, please?

Lorence to your first comment: Slow cookers dont’ usually show temp
They have high or low so that is what we list 🙂
Sounds like yours cooked hot?
As you can see lots of others have enjoyed it so I’m sorry you didn’t 🙂

To your second comment: Patience is a virtue …. please show some 🙂

To your THIRD comment: Lorence it’s CHRISTMAS!
I am a busy mum of 3 kids
I approve ALL comments … I’m only one person and I have hundreds to go through as well as my actual life to live in between.
Perhaps rather than jumping to ridiculous conclusions you should just show some patience!
I mean really!

Merry Christmas 🙂

yeah well… only approving 5 star ratings seems a bit unfair. Thumbs down for that 🙁


December 18, 2017

Hello Paulene! I submitted a comment to days ago, apparently it hasn’t been approved yet?

Tasted great, but it was tender like shoe leather 🙁
I even cooked it way less than the requested 5 hours.
It would be better to have a temperature specification instead just “low”/”middle”/”high” since obviously slow cokkers can be quite different.

Let us know how you go 🙂

Hi, could I use pork chops and what to use with cream. Maybe a dash of sweet chilly sauce..

Hi Anne
I think that would work yes 🙂
Just stick to the same volume of liquid total
Beware the gravy will thicken the end result more too

I have made this successfully once before. However, I want to make it again but hubster does not like the texture of mushrooms. Can I add 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom to 300 – 600ml cream as well as a sachet of instant black pepper gravy? Any help appreciated

Deliciousness on every level! There are not enough words in the English language to describe how good this dish is!

I am not a good cook. Everything I ever made in a slow cooker was bland and yuck.
This however, OH MY GOODNESS.
I used rump steak (all I had) which did go dry. I also used 600ml of cream with 3 tsp of stock powder.
The kids were so surprised at the great taste, they nearly fell off their chairs! One even had leftovers for breakfast. I live my slow cooker now!

This was a big hit at my house 👍🏼 I added onion and garlic and served with mashed potato and steamed vegges.

I’m never ever making steak with mushroom sauce in a pot and pan ever again!!
This was so easy and came out with the most tender steak and creamy/tasty sauce.
Only change i made was to add a teaspoon of crushed garlic when i thickened the sauce.

My husband absolutely loved this recipe and it will be a favourite in our house. Sadly I can’t eat it as I am dairy intolerant but I am sure I would also love it. It is so quick easy to prepare before going to work. I like easy as I work full time and don’t have time for a lot of slicing and dicing. The only thing I changed was I don’t like to thicken with cornflour so I used Deb Instant Mashed potato. I served it with Mashed Potato and Veg my husband commented how much he loved it and could I make it again.

Most slow cookers have low and high settings 🙂
Is yours a multi cooker perhaps and not an actual slow cooker?

What do you mean turn it to HIGH? Is that for slow cooker??? I dont have that on my cooking utensil.

I make this with chicken breast and change the beef stock cube to chicken stock tastes amazing and my family love it.

I’m not really sure?
What would you normally sub it with in other recipes?
MAYBE coconut cream but it could alter taste and wouldn’t be as thick so may need thickening?

I think you could yes 🙂

Can i use phily cream 4 cooking instead of cream?


May 13, 2017

Is there an alternative to use instead of cream as i have a child that is Gluten and Dairy intolerant?

Omgosh it was amazing. Steak fell apart when you cut it. It was a big hit with the partner and i. Deff gonna be making again. I used scotch fillet steak.

It’s a cream that resists splitting under heat
Found in the regular chilled cream section
In Australia I use the Bulla brand

what is cooking cream? please

Lovely with a creamy mash and veg or hot chips 🙂

I’m making this for dinner tonight, Hubby is pretty excited
What did you all serve it with?

I have cooked this several times now, and tonight – threw a couple of sausages in as well.
Such a versatile creamy sauce – a really lovely dish.
(I have also put 1/2 teaspoon of pepper in on occasion to make it a ‘peppery mushroom’ sauce for another option)

Made this for dinner last night. Very delicious

Did you use a cooking cream as that shouldn’t split?
What you can do to bring it back is to mix it really well with a tsp of cornflour to bring it back together.
Remember while it may not look nice split is still ok to eat 🙂

Hi i have this in the slow cooker right now but the cream has curdled. Will it still be ok?
