Made this in a 1.5L slow cooker on the weekend – used 500g pack of lean (5%) mince from Coles with 1 cup of frozen veg (plus other ingredients as listed) and it fitted perfectly! Delicious – especially for breakfast on toast – and will definitely make again.

I love this recipe! The first time I made it I went back for seconds which is unusual for me!! It’s so delicious. I’ve been thinking recently of using it as a pie filling.

200ml πŸ™‚

This is my favourite slow cooker recipe I think. So easy and delicious. I usually double the recipe and add 1/2 to 1 cup of lentils and some chopped baby spinach or kale or rainbow chard about 1/2 before serving. We have it with steamed broccoli and mashed potato. It freezes well and we take leftovers to work for lunch.

Is the half tin of condensed soup the large tin or the regular/smaller tin?


June 3, 2022

I made this the other night my husband was extremely impressed.
Served with mash and had leftovers on toast for breakfast very tasty

Absolutely delish. Will please the fussiest of eaters.

Made for the first time tonight and absolutely loved it! Definitely make again.
Doubled the mince, full can of soup, 3 cups frozen veg, used Continental stock pod instead of cube, skipped garlic & rest ingredients as per recipe.


April 16, 2022

added a bit of this n a bit of that, used turkey mince instead ( was all I had , but I make this a lot ) always easy and tasty.


March 20, 2022

Fabulous recipe and a regular favourite at our place, Thanks!


March 10, 2022

I made this last week and it was absolutely delicious. Zero leftovers, I used HP Sauce and a full tin of tomato soup. So good, this will definitely be making repeat appearances on my dinner table. Thank you for another spectacular recipe.

Made this and doubled the ingredients. Left out the garlic and parsley. Went round 4 of us and enough left over for lunch the next day or 2.

All I can say is yum. My husband loved it. Will definitely be keeping this in my resume.

This was incredible I added the whole tin of tomato soup because I don’t like half tins sitting around and it didn’t affect it at all. My 2 year old even ate it and he can be a tricky eater sometimes he kept saying “more” will 100% be making this again

Omg this recipe was amazing! My 8 yr old loved it , said she would love it as a spaghetti sauce too! Can’t wait to make again and put our own spin on it too πŸ₯°


January 10, 2022

I made this for dinner tonight – I added some frozen chopped spinach and a tablespoon of mango chutney, was delicious 🀀

I used tinned tomatoes & left out the bbq & gravy mix. Very tasty. An easy meal I’ll make more than once.


October 21, 2021

This was delicious, easy and the whole family were able to customise their meals (served over mash, or in a wrap, or over a baked potato). Dare I say, the leftovers were even better the next day!

I think you may fit it ok, perhaps just have to reduce the veg down to 1 cup depending on how full it looks Carmen πŸ™‚


October 15, 2021

Absolutely delicious. I microwaved some carrots, potatoes, broccoli and cauli and addded in the last couple of hours. Had leftovers with pasta tonight.

Just wondering how I would adjust the ingredients for a 1.5ml slow cooker please

Dawn J English

August 15, 2021

Reciepe looks so easy. Will definitely try this one out soon. Thank you ever so much for the endless reciepes. Makes my role so easy. Love it.

This one adapts well to doubling just the mince up to a kg without doubling anything else needed πŸ™‚


June 17, 2021

I was just wondering whether you could double this recipe please for a 6.5L slow cooker? If so, would you only double the meat, veggies, soup, gravox and water? (So not double the stock and sauces) or would you just double everything? Thank you xo

Unsure what you mean Jill? There is no pasta in it? There is no potato in it? You can choose a mixed veg without sweetcorn?

Jill Clement

Problem with potatoes , pasta and sweetcorn. Otherwise a great recipe.


April 28, 2021

Made this for the first time last night. Can’t believe I hadn’t done it before but will now be part of the weekly menu as it was a huge hit with everyone. So tasty. I did a kg of mince and there isn’t much left. Thank you!


March 27, 2021

YUMMY!!! Made this exactly as per recipe and it was delicious., no browning no nothing perfect consistency. Will be doubling the recipe next time as everyone loved it

Absolutely Delish, only change I made was to add Chilli flakes….will definitely be making this again…


February 5, 2021

DELISH!!! Will be making this again made it as a big pot for my family having a sneaky plate before I go to work πŸ˜‹

Yes I would add the water on the day myself πŸ™‚


August 24, 2020

Wanting to make some of this into dump bags tonight/tomorrow.
Is there anything I need to leave out and add on the day of cooking?
Eg water??

If you are on the lookout for a super easy, super cheap and super delicious slow cooked meal then you can not possibly go past this little ripper of a recipe!!! The entire family could not scoff this down fast enough especially when served with our fave slow cooked creamy mash potatoes πŸ˜‹πŸ˜ Only adjustment I made to this recipe was using a whole 500ml can of Rosella condensed tomato soup for extra sauciness. Comfort food at it’s absolute best, highly recommend you try this one too 😊

Very delish

That would probably be enough to cook it through yes πŸ™‚

I’m making this tonight I’m not a confident cook and have only used a slow cooker twice before, fingers crossed I get it right.

I made this one last night, with a couple of changes instead of tomato i used beef stock and i added a couple of spoons of Dijon mustard. Veges i used were, onion, corn, red capsicum, potato, sweet potato, carrot and pumpkin it turned out so nice. Thanks Pauline loved this one and the house smelt so nice all afternoon!

Very delicious. Will be making again. I put potatoes in it and with a nice fresh baguette it made a very moorish hearty meal

I made your Savoury Mince tonight and YUM. I have made it before. I ran out of onions so used a whole leek. I used ketchup instead of tomato sauce. It had a lot of flavour. Will be making it again

This is a family favourite in our household even our fussiest kids love it. Our teenage boys and hubby have the leftovers for breakfast on toast. So easy to make. Thanks for sharing πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‹

I made this last night and it was a big hit with my two teenagers and husband. We had no tomato soup or tomatoes so I added some Liquid chicken stock instead of beef stock cube and it still tasted great. πŸ‘πŸΌ

No don’t brown for dumpbags πŸ™‚ Just raw

Megan Tarlinton

December 20, 2017

Im making dump bags for hubby. Do i need to brown the mince before placing it in a dump bag along with all the other ingrediants? Nte: the dump bags will be frozen and then hopefully thawed before he places it in the slow cooker!


June 25, 2017

Loved this!
I used tinned diced tomatoes instead of soup, halved the sauces and left out the garlic. Delicious, everyone loved it.!

Sure I don’t see why not πŸ™‚


June 17, 2017

Could this be done with turkey mince no browning before hand ?

Easy dad made meal packed with flavour added sweet potato & a cup of port then served with extra frozen veggies πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»


April 20, 2017

I tried this recipe as I wanted to make a shepherd’s pie but leave the filling cooking while at work so I just needed to top with mash when I got in. I used a tin of chopped tomatoes rather than tomato soup and I added frozen peas and sweetcorn. It was delicious and so easy to top with mash and pop in the oven after work. I did find it a bit sweet so will leave out the BBQ sauce and tomato sauce next time – I’ll just add some tomato puree.


April 8, 2017

I saw this recipe and thought it sounded good. Did a double batch so I could freeze some, but it was so good we ate the lot over 2 days! I used frozen peas and frozen corn and used beef stock instead of water. Served it with fresh crusty bread. This recipe is a keeper!

February 25, 2017

We love this. With 3 nearly adults in the house plus myself it’s a good quick easy meal. Even the boys will prepare it for me when I’ve had a busy day. We’ve made it into a shepherds pie and added pasta for something different.


December 12, 2016

making this tonight, cant wait! something so easy!!!

Yes it will fit a 3L
I don’t ever brown mine when I cook it πŸ™‚


August 1, 2016

Would this be ok in a 3L slow cooker, Also do people brown the mince first, thanks

It really doesn’t need it but I think you could safely push it out a little longer on low if you need to πŸ™‚

Cassandra Petrick

Is it possible to have it on for more than 6 hours?


May 9, 2016

Thanks for recipe. My partner is a fussy eater. Hope that he will like this when I cook it.


May 8, 2016

I made this tonight. I doubled the recipe to make a bulk lot to freeze. I left out the tomatoes instead I used a packet of dry French onion soup. I used fresh zucchini onion and carrot then frozen peas corn capsicum. yum!

Up to you really and how tomatoey you like it πŸ™‚


April 27, 2016

If substituting tin of tomatoes do you put the whole tin in or just half a tin

Just like my mum used to make. And it doesn’t get any better than that
