Servings 4 – 6


  • 5L Slow Cooker
  • Large ziplock or plastic bag


  • 800 grams (4-6) Oyster blade steaks or similar casserole style steaks
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp beef stock powder
  • 1/2 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 large onion, sliced into rings
  • 400 gram can chopped tomatoes
  • 50 grams (or 2tbsp) concentrated tomato paste
  • 1/2 cup fruit chutney (I always use Rosella brand)
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 300 ml cooking cream (see note)
  • 1 large piece of pumpkin each per serve


  • Combine the steaks, flour, stock powder, curry powder and pepper in the large plastic bag and shake to coat.
  • Place onion rings in slow cooker and lay the floured steaks on top.
  • Combine tomatoes, tomato paste, chutney, garlic, sauce and cream to a jug and mix well. Pour over steaks
  • Arrange the large pumpkin pieces on top
  • Cook on low for 6hrs with TEA TOWEL TRICK in place
  • Serve steak and pumpkin to each serving plate. Pour the sauce generously over the steaks.
    We like to serve this with assorted steamed greens like broccoli, peas, beans etc
  • NOTE:
    ~ Cooking cream is a type of cream that doesn't split during cooking. More info on that HERE.
    ~ The small amount of curry powder gives depth of flavour but has no overall curry taste or heat etc at all!
