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.

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.

Here’s all the info re SPLITTING 🙂

Can you use lactose free cream? What does a it mean by splitting? I use it in all my other cooking

If using normal cream I suggest to add 1-2 tsp cornflour to it before adding to reduce risk of splitting then it’s usually ok 🙂

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!

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.

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 ?

t is teaspoon, T is tablespoon

Probably a silly question…. Does T stand for tablespoons or teaspoon?

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

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.

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)

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.

I used oyster blade steak and you could cut it with a spoon. Served over mashed potato. So yummy!

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!!!
