Nanny’s Braised Steak


May 10, 2017

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
  • Yields: 5


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)


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


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

I made this for my fussy (but lovely) husband a couple of months ago and we both loved it. It is simply the most delicious slow cooker braised steak recipe and it will be cooked frequently in our house (especially in cooler weather). Thanks for sharing your Mum’s recipe Pauline.

Omg I used Chuck Steak but made the rest as per the recipe.

This one is going on my list of regulars. It’s beautiful


July 27, 2022

Absolutely amazing, steak just melts in your mouth , I followed the recipe but also added mushrooms, will definitely be making this again


July 17, 2022

Loved this so so much. I feel like it’s the only way I want to have steak now. Thank you!

Tara Adermann

July 5, 2022

this was so so good!! It will be made again and again in our house


June 19, 2022

Loved how simple yet absolutely delicious this recipe is, it won everyone over! I made it overnight on Saturday and let it cool to make into a deep dish pie on Sunday.


June 14, 2022

Made this last night . The sauce was totally delicious. We had hot crusty rolls to sop up the juices . My son loved it too. Definately will make again

This is a fabulous recipe & never fails. Freezes beautifully too.

Debbie Bell

I made this with 4 sirloin steaks. Only used 1tbs of brown sugar. Will leave out next time. It was delicious 😍


June 6, 2022

Absolute favourite with all the kids and adults, but this week with steak been super pricey, I used about a kg of rolled pork shoulder and stuck to the recipe, cooked for 6hrs on low and it was AMAZING!!!

Julia Watson

June 6, 2022

Made this for the first time last night. Used 2 thick slices of rump steak & the exact recipe for the sauce. I didn’t use bags to coat the meat though, I just put the mustard sugar mix in a bowl & dunked them in then into the flour I put on a plate then into the slow cooker. Came out beautifully tender, sauce was delish & the onions were cooked really nicely too. My husband whos fussy with steak loved it & when I asked if he would have it again he said yes. That’s a win in my book!


May 31, 2022

Yum, yum, yum!!! This was devoured by everyone in our house. I’ll have to make double next time. Served with mash, peas and corn. The perfect meal. Would be a tasty pie filling too!!


May 24, 2022

Made this for the first time tonight. I added some mushrooms and it was amazing. My goodness! Delish. My husband actually got a slice of bread to mop up the gravy on his plate.

Di Pitman

May 23, 2022

This is yummy. Did not change anything.
Used whole steak instead of dicing.
Will be in my repertoire from now on.👍


May 22, 2022

Tried this one for the first time tonight, very yummy – served with cheesy mashed potato and veggies. Would be great in a pie. Substituted the mustard with whole grain mustard and tomato paste with tomato pasta sauce.


May 18, 2022

Perfection on a plate! Seriously yum! I’m mad at myself for waiting so long to try it. The only change I made was to use 2 tablespoons of brown sugar instead of 3. Instant family fave and we will use the leftovers in the pie maker!

Danni Browne

May 17, 2022

Made this for dinner tonight…was absolutely delicious. Didn’t make any changes and didn’t need too…everyone loved it. I will be making this one again 😋

Someone mentioned in the comments that Nannys Braised Steak is GF.
Is plain flour gluten free?


April 23, 2022

Made this for tea last night. Only change I made was to halve the brown sugar. Absolutely perfect, thank you

Hazel Ramsay

April 22, 2022

This recipe is definitely a winner just the way it is without any additions.


April 22, 2022

This is an amazing recipe – husband is a coeliac so all ingredients were GF – delicious

Vanessa macDonald

One of my favorites any leftovers make a great pie ☺

What beautiful feedback – thank you Vickster!

Vickster Pittie

April 18, 2022

This is seriously one of my all time slow cooker favourites. I am a harsh critic as I often find I have to add extra flavours to a dish …… not this one! I LOVE it!! Flavoursome, wholesome, true comfort food that I remember eating when I was a kid growing up. Goes delicious with buttery mashed potatoes. Thank you Pauline for sharing your Mum’s recipe….nothing better than these recipes from long ago to invoke all sorts of wonderful memories.

April 17, 2022

I found this recipe easy to prepare and it is very tasty. My husband requests it often. It reminds me of a dish my grandmother used to make. Sooo satisfying!!


February 18, 2022

Cooked this dish today..smells divine.
It Cooked a bit quicker in my slowcooker.

I used 2 Porterhouse steaks weighing
500 GM’s.
I added two carrots and 4 small potatoes.
and all the same quantities of sauce etc, just reduced the sugar a little and I added a small amount of water.
I have tasted it and it’s going to make a lovely dinner.
Thankyou for the recipe.


February 18, 2022

Very nice. I found gravy was runny and needed thickening at the end. But everyone loved it.

Melissa williams

February 15, 2022

Yum yum, honestly the best slow cooked steak dish I’ve put together , I’ll do it again for sure !!!!!

Karen Baker

February 6, 2022

Made this last night for the first time and it was delicious!!! We saved the leftover gravy and had it with our eggs n bacon for breakfast….. sooooo good 😋😋😋


February 5, 2022

Yum!! Out of steak so I used rissoles. The boys cleaned their plates and requested it again.


November 1, 2021

Made this for dinner last night but with about a kg of rolled pork, doubled all the ingredients as we love the sauce and it was a complete hit, everyone loved it even the 5 kids, and was enough leftovers for lunch today


October 19, 2021

Made this tonight and turned out lovely! I used 1kg of chuck steak and followed the recipe, served with baked veggies


October 3, 2021

Could I do this with chicken at all?


October 1, 2021

Omg this is Devine, my partner even commented that he thinks it’s the best meal I’ve served him in 7 years 🥰 I did however use icing sugar thinking it was the flower but then when I noticed I also then added the flower. He said it’s tasted like rib sauce.. will definitely be doing it again and watching what I use but don’t think there would be much difference just not as sweet 🙂

Lynne Hall

September 1, 2021

We all really enjoyed this dish. It was so tasty and flavourful. Next time I will make extra!


August 16, 2021

Absolutely beautiful 😋 will definitely be making it again..the meat was so tender and everyone in the family loved it 🙂 7 clean plates came back, some with lick marks lol

Oh I definitely need to try that now Daz as I love bbq!


July 12, 2021

We had this again tonight with a side of Caulie and honey mustard potatoes and carrots and it was great, I made a slight change instead of tomato sauce, I used smokey BBQ and the flavour was very good..

Julie Dee

July 6, 2021

Had my Mr 7 make **Nanny’s steak** all on his own. Super easy & super tasty 👌🏻😋 Mr 7 said “his meat tastes delicious”

Tracey Davies

June 2, 2021

Lovely rich flavour beautiful sauce.

Hi Debi, So sorry I’m late to see this question. I’d go with the Dijon over dry powder 🙂


May 22, 2021

So, I had this for the first time (Deffo not the last..) and what a ripper of a meal, I used Blade steak and upon eating, the meat pretty much melted in my Mouth, great meal and I had as a side dish, the Hassleback potatoes, great combination In my Opinion.
Definitely give this a try if you haven’t, you won’t be disappointed.


May 22, 2021

Hi Paulene
So I’m doing this recipe but with a 1.4kg leg lamb…. what can i substitute the american yellow mustard for instead as i dont have any I have Mustard powder & Dijon Mustard what one would you reccomend please….I will be adding more of the ingredients to make more sauce aswell….any help would be greatly appreciated…😁👌👍


April 28, 2021

Delicious! Have made a couple times already and will definitely make again.


March 29, 2021

LOVED EVERY MOUTHFUL ❤ big hit with my family of 8. I made it with Oyster Blade melt in your mouth and the sauce was soooo good with mash. I had to thicken the sauce at the end as the meat lost so much liquid but 1 tablespoon of cornflour and water did the trick while stirring on HIGH for 5 minutes.


March 5, 2021

I love this recipe. My family fav and go to meal. I also add chopped carrots, mushrooms and red onion, plus garlic. I use ketjip manis so I barely use any brown sugar and I also chop new little spuds to make it a meal all in one.


February 14, 2021

This has become a regular meal in my house. The kids 12 and 10 love it also.
I’m cooking it again for dinner tonight.
I wasn’t sure about the mustard and soy sauce but what a great flavour 👍
Thankyou for sharing your mums recipe ❣


February 9, 2021

Absolutely beautiful everytime. I do this as a dump bag. It is so easy and then you have a delicious meal you just need to thaw and cook. You can add whatever veggies you like to this. I often cook pasta and toss it through the sauce. We often eat the pasta and veg with this sauce for a meal its so yummy. Also good with rice or mash.

Chris Cherry 🍒 everyone calls me Nanna which I love ❤️..l

February 7, 2021

Absolutely amazingingly delicious. The only change I made was halved the brown sugar.👍😋 Thanks so much for the recipe Paulene.😊🍒

January 14, 2021

Used Oyster blade steak. Delish-ioiso!! Melt in the mouth.. Converting my mum to slow cooking plenty of leftovers for her in the freezer she loved the flavour hit!


January 6, 2021

This is an absolute favourite in our house, we love it, and with two teenage boys there is never any leftovers!!!

Rachel Fisher

December 22, 2020

Love this. Always mouthfuls of beautiful meat that comforts the saddest heart.

Marion Walsh

December 16, 2020

Absolutely delicious! All plates licked clean! Served with creamy mash potato and broccoli and cauliflower! Highly, highly recommend!


December 14, 2020

Absolutely fantastic recipe, will definitely be making it a regular in this household the only thing I would change is a little less cooking time or ¼ water as my slow cooker cooks hot and I didn’t have enough of the delicious sauce that i started with…oh and maybe doubling the recipe as I wanted 2nds


December 10, 2020

First time here! Family loved it. Used diced beef instead. Worked out beautifully!


December 3, 2020

Have been using this recipe for some time & it is one of my favourites. I always make it to the recipe & it always turns out perfect. The only thing I have done differently when I made it yesterday was to leave the steak to marinate in the bag for a few hours in the fridge. I think it made the flavour a bit more intense. Delicious.

Tammie Moore

November 30, 2020

Oh my gosh!!!
This was to die for!!! My hubby cleaned the plate, and I had to fight him for the leftovers for lunch lol.
He even got stuck at work and it had to sit for 2 hours longer and I was still melt in the mouth amazing.
I just made as is and didn’t add water and was not disappointed in the amount if sauce 🙂

Highly highly recommend this recipe 🙂

Coral Johnson

November 30, 2020

Made it last night. Amazing! Used chuck steak instead which was still yummy!

Jillian Turner

November 25, 2020

Amazing flavours, easy & so economical. Cooked exactly as per recipe with 2 sliced carrots added. Perfect. Thank you!

Janine de Ruyter

November 25, 2020

Your Mum certainly knew her flavours Paulene! This is a delicious, easy and economical meal that everyone loved. I will definitely be making it again! Thanks for the recipe!

Tracey Davies

October 29, 2020

Thus is simply divine! I used minute steaks as thats what I had in freezer ! Try this recipe you won’t regret it…😋

Summa Vlasveld

October 23, 2020

Absolutely beautiful 🤤🤗 Happy family friday dinner. Doubled the receipe, no changes made.

It’s never silly to ask anything you are unsure of Amy 🙂 That’s what we are here for!
Yes I would double it all 🙂


October 9, 2020

This is probably a REALLY silly question but if I double the meat do I double all the ingredients? 🙂


October 3, 2020

I usually don’t leave a review because I’m lazy but have my favourites I regularly do. This was a first for us and was an absolute hit even with little kids! Will do regularly now. We served on mash veg and had it for leftovers the next night also. Love it.

Melissa McGregor

September 30, 2020

One of our favorite dishes!! I made this for a couple friends and their kids and everyone loved it to. Even asked me for the recipe!

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 23, 2020

Yes you can use them, no need to brown. Not sure what your 3 would weigh but should be fairly similar time 🙂

Rhonda Fennell

September 22, 2020

Can i make this with Scotch fillet steaks, i have 3 of them, If so how long to cook for ,and do i need to brown meat first .

Claudia Nulliah

September 7, 2020

Can l leave the mustard out or even replace with something else as not big on mustard ??


September 5, 2020

The only thing stopping me from giving this dish 5 stars is that I’m not a huge fan of gravy. It’s a very tasty meal, and served with mashed potato, carrots and peas it is quintessential Winter comfort food! Very reminiscent of dishes my grandmother used to make. My 19-yr-old son licked his plate clean. My boys love casseroles, so this is a huge hit with them.

Annette King

August 28, 2020

Amazing!! Only put one tablespoon of brown sugar and added half a cup of water at the start due to wanting more sauce and then two tablespoons of gravy mix at the end to thicken it up… Absolutely fan-dam-tastic!!! Definitely will become a regular dish in our house!!


August 21, 2020

This is such a great recipe we just finished the leftovers in a family pie for lunch. Definitely worth a try!


August 20, 2020

Yummy dinner eaten by alll, even turned the little left over into pies.
I halved the brown sugar and added a splash of water 🙂


August 20, 2020

Incredible. I made some adjustments due to allergies but it was scrumptious!


July 23, 2020

Very simple and yummy meal. Extras make great pie filling too!

Kathryn Rickwood

July 14, 2020

Definitely delicious, I tried adding extra water like some suggested, but don’t think it’s necessary.

Pam Causley

July 1, 2020

Made this for dinner tonight was absolutely delicious. I didn’t use the freezer bags I mixed the flour & seasoning in a tray & added 1tbs of mustard powder mixed altogether. Cut the meat off large oyster blade steak dusted in the flour & straight into SC added rest of ingredients cooked on low for 8hrs. Thickened sauce with some gravy mix as we like thick gravy. Was definitely a crowd pleaser. 10/10 from the family.


June 8, 2020

I made this with Venison we had very happy boys in this house they loved it


June 7, 2020

I was a little concerned about this one. Mine sc usually runs hot so everything finishes quicker. This took longer and I was freaking out that it wasn’t going to soften and it was ruined. But it did and it was amazing ! I think I would cut the sugar down a little but otherwise was perfect and really hit the spot. Thank you!


June 6, 2020

I made this the other night and it was delicious! My kids licked Their plates! Perfect with mash and veggies!
Left overs were used for home made pies the next night with Mac and cheese and my kids and their friends loved it! Full of praise. Will definitely be a house hold fav now. Thanks for sharing 🤗

Nicole Lovell

June 5, 2020

Just made this for the first time and OMG it’s the most delicious meal ever. My 2 fussy kids both absolutely loved it as well and my husband would have gone back for seconds if there was any left.
Paulene you are an absolute genius and ur mum would be so proud of you

Michelle Pithie

May 31, 2020

Making this again tonight. It’s s fav in our household

Amber MacFarlane

This recipe was absolutely Devine! Hubby and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will definitely become a regular in our household. 🙌🏼

Denise Redman

May 26, 2020

OMG….I made this last night and could not get enough. Will definatley make again

Jen Love

May 24, 2020

Absolutely amazing. 2 adults 4 kids not one complaint. I used 1.4kg chuck steak so added 1/4 cup water just to stretch the sauce. The flavor was amazing and the meat just fell apart. Every plate was empty and basically licked clean. Will be making again

Debbie Millar

May 18, 2020

This was a hit with both my hubby and grown son yummy clean plates all around

If you slice or dice it Leonie the times shouldn’t change 🙂

Leonie from Victoria

May 11, 2020

I’ve been given a porterhouse roast (1kg) – would it work with this recipe? It sounds really yummy! What cook time would you recommend?

Kristy Garner

May 10, 2020

Best braised steak ever!!!! Will be a regular in this household. It’s a must if you haven’t done it yet you won’t be disappointed.


May 10, 2020

What a lovely recipe. We added a few cloves of garlic as well, didn’t add any water. My whole family loved this dish which says a lot for our household

I did whole steaks but I’ve also done it with diced. Choose a meat that isn’t super lean and really lean can be dry. Cuts like oyster blade, chuck steak, and other stewing type steaks end up moist and tender by the end 🙂


May 8, 2020

Hi, do you use whole pieces of steak rather than diced or sliced? Which are better cuts please? Thanks

David Speight

May 6, 2020

Pauline thanks for sharing this great recipe. I followed it closely but had no American mustard so used Dijon instead. Used 2 onions instead of just one large one. Also added about half a cup of water. Was a huge success. Next time I think I’ll only use 1 Tbsp sugar and maybe add some Worcestershire sauce. Maybe a couple of garlic cloves and perhaps some chilli.
Thanks again, was soooo delicious 😋

Natalie Dodds

April 21, 2020

I finally got around to trying this recipe and I wish that I had of tried it earlier! It was full of flavour and my family loved it so much that it’s now on my meal list.

Lauren B

April 20, 2020

Loved this dish! So yummy and easy. I did 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and threw in a few sliced mushrooms and green beans that were on their last legs. Also added half a cup of water as I like sauce!!!


April 11, 2020

Delish! Made this today added mushrooms and about a 1/4 cup water. Def making again and might make into pie filling

Belinda B

April 1, 2020

This was so delicious! Was a big hit with my family. I recommend serving it with mash to really enjoy all the yummy sauce. This time I used a sweet Bavarian mustard, so skipped the brown sugar. Also, instead of using bags to coat the meat, I just spread the mustard onto the steaks then dipped them into seasoned flour on a plate before placing them in the sc pot. Love that you can use such simple inexpensive ingredients to make such a tasty meal! Would give it 5 stars except I’m not sure if I love it quite as much as lamb obsession!

Yes thinner will take less time 🙂


March 16, 2020

Just making this but when I got my blade steak out of the packaging it is quite thin,would I reduce the cooking time.?j

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

February 26, 2020

The lid to slow cooker always goes on (the only exception to this being for fudge)


February 25, 2020

Hi do you cover dish thanks??

Lauren Whitelaw

February 23, 2020

I absolutely loved this receipe!
Will definately be making again
Loved with mashed potatoes and veg.
Seriously the plate was licked clean hahaha!!

Tiffany Hull

January 21, 2020

Lovely recipe was a hit with my husband and family I used lamb peices as that was what I had in the freezer hubby said the gravey was so good he kept comenting on it the whole time he was eating I did add water so we could have plenty of it just cause we love the extra sauce in our house hold will definitely make again that’s for sure is a new favorite

Nadine Ashby

November 19, 2019

Lovely! Added mushrooms and only 1 table spoon of brownnsugar, kids and hubby enjoyed very much. Thanks for sharing 🙂

Marg Marshall

November 13, 2019

My family love this!! The last time I made it they told me it was too long since the time before and I had to do it more often!

Micheline bennett

October 11, 2019

Wonderful recipe! Family loves it, just don’t overdo the brown sugar, will make it too sweet if your heavy handed 😊

Sandra Kittlety

September 22, 2019

This is a family favourite of ours! I don’t add the brown sugar as I find it gets a little sweet. But it’s really easy to make, it’s even better reheated the next day!


September 20, 2019

This is just the best go to meal for tender meat & a great flavoured dish . Using an inexpensive cut of meat it is on our families regular to go list for slow cooking.

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 19, 2019

I’ve not added mushrooms but you could 🙂


September 18, 2019

I made this for the first time yesterday. Absolutely delicious! I added crushed garlic and Worcestershire in the sauce. Hubby loves it too and he’s pretty picky.


September 18, 2019

Going to try this tomorrow. Can I add Mushrooms as well? If so do I need to add water or any other liquid? Will give feedback and rate tomorrow

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 17, 2019

Yep that’s the same 🙂 American mild and mild American 🙂

Margaret Bosdorf

September 16, 2019

I could not find a bottle of ……… Creamy American Mild Mustard …. so I used Masterfoods mild American mustard


September 1, 2019

Made this and was so fantastic our dog even licked her bowl. Will be making this forever. Thanks for another great recipe.


August 26, 2019

Meat was very tender but is a very sweet dish. Had to adjust quite a bit. Next time I will cut the brown sugar out altogether and see how it goes.

Did have to add the water as well as there was minimal sauce and I like a bit of sauce

Katrina Lomas

August 24, 2019

This is one of my adult kids favourite meals. Never a clean plate left when we have this delicious meal.
Thank you to your mum, it truly is amazing

August 22, 2019

Made this Tues night, hubby said it was beautiful, gave some to daughter to take to work, she also enjoyed it. I’m yet to have some but it smelt lovely through the house. Similar to my mums. Thanks Pauline. 😋

Anita Mcquinn

August 21, 2019

This recipe was new to me so I followed the exact measurements, and it was beautiful. A big hit with the kids and husband! But next time I make it I’ll probably drop the level of mustard and sugar by maybe a tablespoon and add an 8th of wosterchire sauce as well. I added half a cup of water to this perfect recipe as I like sauce over my mash and vegies but otherwise, this will be a regular for our family

May Iraia

August 19, 2019

Yummy, hubby loved it, he said it just might be his new fave, I might try making pies with the leftovers as others have mentioned, such a great dish, thanks for sharing “)

Katie Partridge

August 2, 2019

I’m the laziest cook ever, I just chucked it all in the slow cooker and voila everyone thinks I’m an amazing cook. Loved it. Thank you Pauline. One of the best.


August 1, 2019

Enjoyed this but husband thought it was a bit too sweet! Will try again with no sugar as the tomato sauce is sweet enough.


August 1, 2019

Finally got to make this as I kept forgetting to buy the mustard (forehead slap)
This was delicious and so easy definitely will be a regular on our menu
Thanks Paulene for another amazing recipe

It was my Mum (my kids Nanny) but I’m so pleased you loved it xx


July 1, 2019

Your Nans braised Steak was Amazing!!!! Thankyou. Tip: I didn’t have bottled mustard so I just mixed the Raw Sugar and Dry Mustard together and put it in the shaker bag👌👌👌

Petrina Pearce

June 27, 2019

This was delicious & my hubby can’t stop raving about it! Will definitely make again.


June 16, 2019

Wow just wow 🤤 this was sooooo good.
I marinated the meat in all the stuff for at least 2 hours before, and I coated the onion in brown sugar a hour: I also added 1/8 cup of bbq and a extra tbsp of soy sauce, cause I’m a piggy and love lots of sauce( also the 1/2 cup of water)
My dad went in after his plate and dipped bread into the sauce well so did I.
Definitely going to have this again

Alison Savige

June 3, 2019

Tried for the first time tonight, just delicious!


June 3, 2019

Was so good! I used half Dijon mustard/half mayo to make up America mustard. No need to use bags I just used bowls to dunk and turned out great a little bit extra onion was perfect, 5 hours was the exact time and it came out great. I served with home made sweet potato fries and coleslaw


May 10, 2019

I have a 1kg blade roast, would this work as well if I just left it whole?

Kim Blackburn

May 9, 2019

LOVED this recipe!
Very easy and very adaptable!
Used double the amount of onions as suggested by someone on the slow cooker FB page and it was perfect! Even the 2 year old finished his helping!

10/10 will be adding this to my go to recipes ❤️

Tammy Noble

Kathy Banner

March 18, 2019

I made this last week, it was absolutely delicious. Husband didn’t stop raving about it. Lovely flavour. I cubed my meat instead of leaving the steaks whole.

Mary Sutherland

January 31, 2019

Too sweet for us. Would use less sugar next time. Steak was lovely and tender.

Absolutely loved this recipe! I didn’t have any oyster blade steak so I used osso bucco. It was divine and melted in my mouth. I served with mashed potato and pumpkin with steamed mixed vegies.

Hi Erin, I cook with whole steaks myself. But I do see others choose to roughly cube first 🙂

Erin B

January 16, 2019

Just wondering what size pieces you cut the steak to before adding to the slow cooker?

Thank you! This made me smile xx


January 10, 2019

Made for the first time tonight. So easy to make. Hubby gave it 10/10 and the kids who refuse to eat steak 9/10. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe 😋


January 6, 2019

I finally got around to trying this popular recipe for my family, I can’t believe it took me so long to give it a go! Lol
It was absolutely delicious, a definate winner!
I just served it with a salad and little bread rolls to dip in the sauce, and everyone loved it.
Thanks Paulene for sharing your mum’s recipe xx

It would be a different taste but I bet still nice 🙂
Let me know how it goes

Lisa Moore

I would like to make this. Will this dish work with curry powder? instead of mustard as my child as an allergy to mustard. Thank you


January 1, 2019

I made this tonight for the first time. It was soo easy and sooooo delicious. My husband is very hesitant when I make anything new but he absolutely loved it. I made it with thick scotch fillet steak and cooked for 5 hours. The meat was sooooo soft. Will defently be making this Again.

Finally tried nanny’s braised steak today using gravy beef 😋
I just marinated in one bowl & coated in flour in another bowl (as I found it a bit easier).
I ended up leaving it for 6.5 hours but probably wouldn’t go past 6 next time as it juuuuust started to dry out in the corners.
Tasted great though and I would definitely make it again 👌🏼 Served with mashed potatoes 🥔

Wow wow wow, melts in the mouth and packed full of flavors. I just added some garlic to the sauce and cracked black pepper. DEVINE . Always going to be on my to cook list. Love it and thank you 🍽🧡

My mum’s recipe (my kids who never got to meet her called her Nanny in the stars – hence Nanny’s in the title xx)

October 9, 2018

We absolutely love this meal, thank you so much for sharing your nans recipe with us Paulene 😊 The first few times I made this with Dijon mustard and have finally tried it with american mustard too…. Just so easy and delicious 😋😍 A definite regular meal for us🙂

Rhonda Fennell

September 19, 2018

I made this today, with kg of cubed chuck steak. I am a bit worried there is not enough sauce, so added 1/2 cup water. Hope it trns out ok

Becki H

August 17, 2018

We loved this! Only changes were I added mushrooms as had some in the fridge and also did 2 hours on high at the start as our steaks were rather big. Will be a regular at our place from now on. Sauce is delicious!


August 17, 2018

I was unsure about how this would taste as the combination of ingredients seemed unusual. I shouldn’t have worried. It was amazing. I used Dijon mustard because that’s all I had. Otherwise, no substitutions. It was amazing. This is my new go-to braised steak recipe, thank you so much for sharing.


August 17, 2018

I wish I knew what I was doing wrong but my meat was as tough as boot leather. The sauce was delicious but couldn’t stomach the meat.

Laura CC

August 15, 2018

Unfortunately hubby and i arent fans. the flavors were abit weird when they all came together. soy tomato and mustard with sugar was a bit strange 🙂 each to their own


August 12, 2018

Had this for dinner tonight and it was amazing! Loved the flavour and it just melts in your mouth. It was a huge family hit and we will definitely be putting it on our list of regular meals 😍

Angel Jones

August 11, 2018

Amazing!! This is to die for seriously. Is cook this every night just to have 5 minutes peace whilst everyone is scoffing their food and kicking their plates. And so easy to make!


July 21, 2018

Bloody delicious…+ I’m kinda hard to please with slow cooked meals!
I made a couple changes, no sugar, no salt…mainly because my sauces weren’t salt reduced + I figured I could add later if needed, extra pepper, a good teaspoon of garlic + I diced the onions instead of slicing.
This is my new favourite recipe + will be a regular meal in my house.
The meat melted in my mouth + it was just so tasty!
Thank you for this recipe. Love, Love, Love!!

I can’t say I’ve ever had any leftovers! haha But I think it should be ok 🙂


July 14, 2018

Just wondering can i freeze it once its cooked and save for another night


July 13, 2018

Absolutely amazing! My fussy 3 yr old devoured it!

Melanie BROWN

July 12, 2018

Amazing ….. I cooked mine with potato and carrot at the end of cooking time I added hokin noodles loved it 100%

Merveen Baldwin

July 11, 2018

July 5, 2018

Kelly Wessel

July 2, 2018

It was sensational I was nervous but the meat melted and a nice amount of gravy served with sweet potato mash and mash potato for my fussy ones will definitely make again 👍🏼

Katherine Buck

June 29, 2018

Made this tonight for my family of 6 and wow was a big hit even with the fussy husband and kids I used Dijon mustard instead of the American mustard and diced casserole steak and I can say will be a regular in our house 🙂

Gaylene Hawkins

June 28, 2018

This recipe is amazing! Never have any leftovers.


June 25, 2018

absolutely delicious!! i was a bit weary of making it to begin with, because of the mustard and soy sauce, but really it just adds to the flavour, will deffo make it again, thanks for the recipe


June 25, 2018

I had a 1.1kg Rump Roast that needed to be cooked so thought I’d give this recipe a go…
Bomb diggity!! Even my two fuss pots (4&6) devoured this which is saying something. I only used 1 Tblspn brown sugar & used Dijon Mustard instead of American. Nannies Braised Steak will definitely be a regular in our house 🙂

ayla dykhoff

June 24, 2018

Made this tonight, it was so good even my toddler loved it. Will definitely be a regular meal in my house

Monique Kidd

June 21, 2018

Yum yum yum. A little sweet so I will probably play with recipe a little but definitely will make again. Would make a great pie filling too 😋

Donna M

June 18, 2018

Way too sweet for my family. I had to add 1 cup of beef stock after only 3 hours because the sauce was too thick and beginning to burn. Won’t be making this again.


June 11, 2018

Absolutely love this dish, now a regular in our family


June 5, 2018

I love this dish, it’s now a regular in our house hold. My husband doesn’t like it so sweet so I only do half the amount of sugar.

Yes it’s in the new book 4 🙂


June 4, 2018

Hi, Just wondering if this is in one of your slow cooker cook books. It was a really lovely meal.

Megan Herbert

June 4, 2018

So good it has been requested again! Family loved it! Will add some vegetables though next time.

Thera Donnellan

May 29, 2018

Its a family favorite in my house. I have 3 kids all aged under 7 and they cant get enough of it… so tender, so delicious, cheap, quick and easy to make, i try and make it a weekly meal

Narelle Galloway

Amanda Hewson

May 25, 2018

Definitely will make this again! Enjoyed it aswell as my children!!!!!! We all wanted more!!!!

Christine Damrow

May 25, 2018

This was delish. I used gravy beef in mine only because that’s what I had but that was the only change I made. Will definitely make this again

Tracey Davies

May 21, 2018

This recipe is divine thank you Paulene Christie its so, so beautiful.. Hubby looovved it!!

angela stanger

May 21, 2018

Absolutely stunning! All the family loved it!


May 6, 2018

Absolutely a favourite in my house! Never need to adjust the recipe it always comes out perfect no matter what cut of steak or beef i use and everyone cleans their plates in no time!

Bec Uziel

April 29, 2018

Sooooooo yummy! Nothing more needs to be said.
I doubled the sauce because we like it extra saucey.

Ellen Polomka

April 28, 2018

This is a must in our house once a fortnight. Absolutely love it.

Karen Davoren

April 20, 2018

Made this the other night. It was a hit! Absolutely divine! Will definitely make again


April 18, 2018

Soo yummmmy. Added just over a cup of water towards the end of cooking Perfect😀

Sarah Soper

April 16, 2018

Yum! Braised steak is a favourite in our family but this is definitely next level – so rich and delicious for so few ingredients! I served it with some buttery mashed potato and mixed vegies. I put in on when before work and only had 500g of steak so threw some lamb in too and half a cup of water- it was perfect, so mouth watering-ly delicious, even my fussy girl devoured it, can’t wait to make it again.

Judith Calhoun

March 30, 2018

My partner and I loved this dish, it was so easy to prepare and I will be definitely making this recipe again.

That’s awesome Vanessa 🙂 Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback too x

Yes that mustard is fine 🙂
Onions are definitely part of the flavour but if you don’t have them there isn’t much you can do 🙂

Vanessa Giardina

March 26, 2018

Absolutely loved this recipe. Didnt think that the gravy was going to thicken up but it got there at the end. Picked a great recipe for a first timer on the slow cooker… Everyone loved it 🙂


March 22, 2018

Hi just about to make this ,quick question i s the mustard the american yellow mustard ? Its the only type i could find in the shop and also i have no onions will this affect the flavour ??

Matika Poulos

March 15, 2018

Absolutely the best recipe I’ve tried. I had guests over and they asked for the recipe. I wouldn’t alter anything on this recipe 🙂 Thankyou!


March 10, 2018

Delicious and tender beef. I did use half the sugar. You’ll be amazed at the flavour result from these ingredients. We made a big batch and had leftovers sliced and warmed with salad on a fresh bread roll the next day.

You can do either 🙂 I leave mine whole, others cuts theirs first


March 8, 2018

Do you leave steaks whole or cut smaller?

Add some extra water yes
And consider a double batch
As an empty cooker will cook hotter
If fuller it will cook longer more successfully
Or … cook this one on the weekend 🙂


March 5, 2018

How could I cook this for 7-8 hours on low? I’m hoping to put it on before work. Just add liquid or? Thank you


March 4, 2018

Love this recipe.
I even use this sauce for sausages. Tastes amazing. Thanks Paulene for sharing your mums recipe. 💜

Jessie Coluccio

February 7, 2018

We love this dish in our house- minimum effort for maximum flavour is always a winner.

Tracey Welburn

January 4, 2018

Another success. Cooked on low for an extra hour as I used gravy beef. Very tasty & I too was amazed by the amount of gravy that was produced. A definate winner!!!!

Natasha Shannon

January 1, 2018

I have made this a few times and it is my fav. It is also one of the few slow cooked meals my hubby asks me to make.


November 6, 2017

I made this last night. It was really nice. Served with mash and beans. Next time I’ll double the gravy to have lots more to soak into the mash

Yes I’ve made mine into a pie using puff pastry and a pie maker … it was perfect 🙂


November 5, 2017

Has anyone tried making this into a pie? How is the gravy sauce as is or is it too strong and need to be diluted and then thicken to be edible in a pie? I ask because I don’t eat meat and therefore haven’t tried it. However made this for a friend who loved it but have left overs so thought I could make into a pie.

Jenny Griffiths

September 16, 2017

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


August 25, 2017

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.

Leanne Lee

August 17, 2017

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


August 13, 2017

OMG made this was a bit worried because I’am not a big mustard fan but can tell you it worth the try will be made regular in my house thanks heaps for this recipe

Maria Monica Peterson

August 13, 2017

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

Hahaha LOVE this feedback


August 7, 2017

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.

Vicki Alexander

August 6, 2017

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.

Julie D

August 6, 2017

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.

Samara Ernst

August 5, 2017

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!

Allison Collins

August 2, 2017

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!


July 28, 2017

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.

Tracey Quinnell

July 27, 2017

This is such an easy meal to make and super delicious.

Jan Dobson

July 24, 2017

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!

Karen caton

July 22, 2017

Made this for the first time. Mmmmmmm unbelievably good.

Jamie Birch

July 21, 2017

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 😍😍

Jessica Hansen

July 17, 2017

This was a hit in our house super soft and yummy

Maureen Greet

July 15, 2017

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.


July 12, 2017

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.

Priscilla Te Moana

July 11, 2017

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

July 9, 2017

Made this today (with seeded mustard).

Mindblowing. Definitely going into the regular roster.


July 8, 2017

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

Melissa Jacobs

July 8, 2017

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


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.


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

July 4, 2017

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 🙂


July 3, 2017

This is so yummy, little ingredients so much flavour.


July 3, 2017

Is seeded mustard on?

Robynne Dare

July 3, 2017

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

Dee Hargreaves

July 2, 2017

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!!!


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?


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 🙂


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.


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


June 21, 2017

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


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 😍


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.


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!


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 🙂


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

June 15, 2017

WOW, just WOW and I’m not a fan of mustard…..did I say WOW! This is now our number 1 favourite

June 13, 2017

Could I substitute Dijon mustard?

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.

Darren Comley

June 10, 2017

Forgot to add my rating. If i had two sets of stars i would give it 9

Darren Comley

June 10, 2017

Dear nanny. Thankyou for this contribution to my world. Your recipe is simply stunning. Easy to prepare. My youngest son who automatically turns his nose up and wont try anything new ……… Loved it! I tried the tea towel method for the first time! Thankyou


June 7, 2017

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!
This was so amazing hubby and I both licked out plates clean. I think this will become a happy addition to our meal rotation.

Elena Barlow

June 7, 2017

We absolutely LOVED this recipe! My husband was so happy that I had made enough for left overs for the next day, he asked me to do this again ASAP!

Jodie Cook

June 7, 2017

This was amazing! I highly recommend it.


June 7, 2017

Tastes good and plenty of gravy. No need to add extra fluid for it 🙂


June 6, 2017

AMAZING. So quick and easy to prepare aswell. Wow, just had it tonight and can’t wait to make it again already 😍


June 6, 2017

My husband loved this recipe. Will defiantly make again


June 4, 2017

This dish turned out beautiful. I used the oyster blade steak and it just fell apart it was sooo tender. The flavours just worked all together. It was an absolute winner in my house.

Melissa Zirilli

June 3, 2017

Omg! I read everyones reviews so I decided to try this. All I can say is we will be having this at least once a week! It was to die for!!!!! Even my 9 month old demolished it lol! Thank you Pauline for submitting such a devine recipe. X

Victoria Duncan

This recipe is one for the whole family. It is sooooo good, it will be one you make over and over again.

Melanie Thompson

June 2, 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

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 .

Absolutely loved the sauce. Was so close to something my dad used to make when he was a butcher. Used pieces of chuck steak and will definitely be making this again

NEVER slow cook frozen meat :/

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!

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.


May 24, 2017

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


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 😊


May 22, 2017

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


May 22, 2017

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

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………

Made this for dinner tonight….omg this was delicious, the thick scrumptious gravy was to die for, made exactly as recipe, but used gravy beef and cooked for 5 hours 😍😍😍

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!!

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.

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

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!

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


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 🙂

Is the American mustard a powder or paste?
