  1. This was very yummy! I did add 2 more tablespoons each of the worchestershire & tomato sauces, another garlic clove, only 300ml cream and I used diced beef. The meat was very tender and the sauce delicious. I am making it again next week!!!

  2. This was really nice and simple. I didn’t brown the meat, but left it for 5 hours. My sauce didn’t look amazing, as I only had normal cream so it was a little unappealing to look at, but it was delicious. As per other comments, the meat was so soft you hardly needed a knife. Will definitely try again, next time with cooking cream.

  3. Loved it in this house. Added extra garlic, quite a bit only because we love garlic. Also used a bit more cream. I added a little cornflour at the end to thicken the sauce at the end. I made a couple of extra meals for the freezer for work when we are on the back shifts. Then saved the extra sauce for later in the week to go on snitzels (Hubbys idea)

  4. Made this tonight, it was delish! I usually make it on the stove top but I wanted the meat to be tender, it def was! I also added more garlic and hot sauce. I used a tea towel under the lid to stop the condensation ruining it, I had it on high for 3hrs and then took the lid off for half hour afterwards so the sauce could thicken.

    So yummy. Definitely on the rotation. Thickened sauce at the find with cornflour. Big thumbs up.

  6. Hi All,
    I want to do this sauce without putting the meat into the slowcooker. I wasn’t happy with the meat but loved the sauce. What changes, if any, should I make to the sauce ? (I’m thinking the meat must add some flavour to the sauce. Is this correct ?

  7. My youngest son, Mr Fussy, and I liked this recipe. It had a really nice flavour to it but it wasnt quite what I was expecting or hoping for. I will definitely try it again, and next time I will wind back on the cream, wind up the worcestshire sauce, wind up the garlic more than I already had, and introduce some rich gravy mix towards the last hour for thickening and flavour more to my hopes. And I will still add the mushrooms and the strips of short cut bacon which added to what I cooked tonight.

    Yummy! I love this recipe so much, I doubled sauce ingredients (except for cooking cream) and seasoned with salt and pepper. Very delicious and will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe Katrina Renwick!


    YUM – As suggested I added cornflour with the sauces and cream and cream did not curdle. I was impressed as I cooked it on low for 6 hours (instead of 4). I cooked off the onion and garlic and browned the meat first. I added 2 teaspoons beef stock to sauce mix. Sauce still needed some more cornflour to thicken at the end. So delicious. I’ve had a stove top casserole of beef diane I have used for over 15 years but from now on I will be doing this slow cooker version. Perfect. Served with pasta.

  10. Made this last night, it was awesome, but had quite a bit of sauce leftover. Also had some Bolognese meatballs left. Put them together and yum. Instant Parma Rosa sauce. Thanks for the recipe.

    Easy peasy and so yum!
    My steak was so tender – I didn’t believe it could be in just 4 hours!
    Served over a bed of smashed potato to soak up that gorgeous gravy – so good!

    Absolutely fabulous and easy recipe which I’ve made a few times now. Today I didn’t have any cream so subbed with sour cream and thickened it with a cornflour slurry. Absolutely delicious ?

  14. 5 stars
    Yum, such a delicious sauce and lots of it.
    Even considering meat quantity was increased to 1.5kg.
    My long life cream was 20 ml less to recipe but I like bit of bite to Diane so I added 2 tbspn more of Worcestershire .
    Thickened at end with cornflour, very easy staple ingredients.
