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

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 🙂

Made your Nanas steak and my overly fussy husband gave me my once a year compliment on my cooking. He and I both loved it and yes I put more water in it for more sauce, so delish, will be a regular feature meal. Thank you nan

Is the American mustard a powder or paste?
