Made this and was absolutely delicious. Will definitely be making again

Made this tonight and hubby licked the plate clean (a rare thing!). Used only 500gms of rump steak, added an extra tsp of beef stock powder and added mushroom soup sachet as well as the mushrooms. I didn’t need to add cornflour as the cooking cream was still thick and creamy. Served with roasted broccoli and fries. I also halved the cooking time so 2.5 hrs on low in a 5.7L SC. Delish!

I tried this Sunday and i tell ya what do yourself a favour and get this meal going was so good rump steak very tender and mushroom sauce so tasty


April 30, 2022

Love love love this. So so easy and hubby loved it so much he cleaned off his plate. Something he doesn’t usually do.


April 30, 2022

Wow. I cooked this tonight and hubby literally wiped clean his plate. Something he has never done. Will definitely be making this again. May even try it with chicken instead of steak. So so yummy. πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ€€πŸ€€

Delicious!! I didn’t change or add anything and it had plenty of flavor. Even my 12 year old loved it. Definitely a keeper, yummo!!

Tried this with rump (cubed) potatoes (peeled and quartered 300g) didn’t have stock substituted for gravy and no cornstarch used all purpose plain flour instead (3 tablespoons)
Served with rice and salad
They family (3 adults) couldn’t get enough next time I’ll double the recipe 5 stars

Absolutely delicious, the only thing I added was a tablespoon of gravy granules to the cream with the stock powder. Steak was so tender and sauce awesome. Thankyou for another beautiful recipe. It’s a keeper like so so many. πŸ˜‹

Hi! I would love to make this but I live in the US and we don’t have “cooking cream” in any stores near me. In fact, I don’t think it’s available anywhere in the US. Is there something I could use instead as a substitute? Maybe half and half because it has less fat and might not separate as much? Please let me know if you have any ideas – Thanks!

Hi Pauline Yes I do mean the left overs and thank you in advance πŸ™‚

Do you mean like the leftovers Amanda?


August 7, 2021

I’m just wondering if the mushroom sauce could be used on pasta as well? Thank you in advance and I’m wanting to try this recipe out

My husband says that this is the best meal I have ever cooked, so that says at lot for the past 48 years. Lol. I’m gobsmacked on how just a few ingredients can produce such incredible flavours, as is the case with sooo many of your recipes Pauline!


May 17, 2021

Very yummy πŸ˜‹ thoroughly enjoyed it


May 17, 2021

This is so delicious and so easy!! My partner didn’t talk the entire meal lol it’s a hit with him. Def making this a regular meal x

Well I was going to cook a Braised Steak recipe but came across this one. It’s cooking now & the smell is amazing so we can’t wait for dinner. It’s so easy to do too. I’m in the UK so used Elmlea long life cream plus I didn’t have any beef stock powder so used a chicken oxo cube! I’ll be making this recipe again soon, thank you for sharing Paulene.

I used rump steak and I also added French onion soup mix with the beef stock and cream we are having this with mash potato and carrots


January 25, 2021

This was amazing, family loved it. I added in some garlic granules with the cream and stock powder delicious, highly recommend,


September 6, 2020

This was absolutely delicious! I used eye fillet (don’t hate me!) and browned the beef and added a little paprika and garlic. Served it with spiral pasta. This will definitely be a regular in our household!

Tried this today, it looked to simple to me & I was worried it would not taste good. Couldn’t have been more wrong, turned out absolutely brilliant & it will be in my favorite recipes from now on


December 10, 2019

This is a family favourite
I use oyster blade and add French onion soup mix to the cream. It is delicious ❀️


December 5, 2019

I used normal cream instead of cooking and it split a little, also used blade steak which was possibly not the best option but tasted amazing.. just put leftovers into pies… yummm

I did this with rump steaks, instead of the cooking cream I used two cans of cream of mushroom soup and a beef oxo cube along with mushrooms and onions, when ready I removed the steaks and thickened up the sauce with bisto, it turned out great.

You are so welcome Caroline xx

This delicious recipe hasn’t even finished cooking yet and I’m already writing a review! That’s because I’ve just added the cornflour slurry for the last 30 minutes of cooking and of course I couldn’t resist a lick of the spoon! Don’t worry I didn’t put it back in afterwards! No double dipping from this cook! Another amazing recipe Pauline, thank you again for the time and effort you have put into creating easy, delicious family recipes that are so simple to put together but result in fabulous tasting meals. P.S. I purchased your Family Favourites book on the weekend – love it!

A massive favourite with my hubby, he says it’s better than any club or pub mushroom sauce dishes out. I double the cream and mushrooms (same cooking time) to make extra sauce to freeze to add to home made chicken snitz.

This one is on repeat in this house. The new family favourite. Only thing different I did was used 2 heaped tablespoons of chicken stock power instead of the beef (I didn’t have any) diced the beef and served with pasta spirals. Absolutely amazing 😍

I’ve not tried that one myself to be sure
If you do let us know how it goes πŸ™‚


March 25, 2019

Can I use coconut cream ?

Sara B

February 10, 2019

Yummmmm. I browned the steak beforehand, sprinkled with salt and paprika and garlic powder. And I added a Tablespoon of tomato paste to the cream. This is so yummy!

Made this for the first time yesterday it was absolutely delicious I did add 1 heaped Tsp Minced Garlic, 1 Tbsp Smoked Paprika and 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce will definitely make this again

Never done rump steak in SC before so thought I’d give it a go since it was supermarket quality. 4hrs in on low was worried, was still like an old boot, so bumped SC up for an hour on high then returned to low. 6 hrs in total….made the cornflour slurry after emptying sauce into saucepan, dished up, w mashed potato, carrots and coleslaw and OMG….it was delicious. Hubby gave me a 12/10 and he doesn’t usually like SC meals, and the fat on the rump was rendered to perfection, so much so, that this was exceptional, considering I always cut the fat off whatever meat under frypan cooking. Well worth the cook and wait. 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️


August 25, 2018

Not a mushroom fan but decided to try this last week and omg 😍😍😍 absolutely πŸ˜‹ even the kids enjoyed eating this sooo making it again tonight 😱😍😍😘

Why not choose a non mushroom recipe πŸ™‚


June 29, 2018

I hate mushrooms. What could replace them with with please

Kim Smith

June 24, 2018

Made this tonight for hubby and daughter, they loved it but unfortunately I used porterhouse steak and it was way too tough. Will definitely try again with rump. A+++


March 11, 2018

Thanks so much for your help, Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central. This is cooking right now, cannot wait to taste it….looks so good.

Hi Linda πŸ™‚
Here’s all the info you need here on The Tea Towel Trick


March 8, 2018

Sorry I am new to this site.
The recipe says to place a tea towel under the lid. May I ask how exactly and why, please?


February 20, 2018

very yummy

Lorence to your first comment: Slow cookers dont’ usually show temp
They have high or low so that is what we list πŸ™‚
Sounds like yours cooked hot?
As you can see lots of others have enjoyed it so I’m sorry you didn’t πŸ™‚

To your second comment: Patience is a virtue …. please show some πŸ™‚

To your THIRD comment: Lorence it’s CHRISTMAS!
I am a busy mum of 3 kids
I approve ALL comments … I’m only one person and I have hundreds to go through as well as my actual life to live in between.
Perhaps rather than jumping to ridiculous conclusions you should just show some patience!
I mean really!

Merry Christmas πŸ™‚


December 20, 2017

yeah well… only approving 5 star ratings seems a bit unfair. Thumbs down for that πŸ™


December 18, 2017

Hello Paulene! I submitted a comment to days ago, apparently it hasn’t been approved yet?


December 17, 2017

Tasted great, but it was tender like shoe leather πŸ™
I even cooked it way less than the requested 5 hours.
It would be better to have a temperature specification instead just “low”/”middle”/”high” since obviously slow cokkers can be quite different.

Let us know how you go πŸ™‚


September 27, 2017

Hi, could I use pork chops and what to use with cream. Maybe a dash of sweet chilly sauce..

Paulene @ Slow Cooker Central

September 13, 2017

Hi Anne
I think that would work yes πŸ™‚
Just stick to the same volume of liquid total
Beware the gravy will thicken the end result more too


September 12, 2017

I have made this successfully once before. However, I want to make it again but hubster does not like the texture of mushrooms. Can I add 1 can of condensed cream of mushroom to 300 – 600ml cream as well as a sachet of instant black pepper gravy? Any help appreciated

Deliciousness on every level! There are not enough words in the English language to describe how good this dish is!


August 1, 2017

I am not a good cook. Everything I ever made in a slow cooker was bland and yuck.
This however, OH MY GOODNESS.
I used rump steak (all I had) which did go dry. I also used 600ml of cream with 3 tsp of stock powder.
The kids were so surprised at the great taste, they nearly fell off their chairs! One even had leftovers for breakfast. I live my slow cooker now!

This was a big hit at my house πŸ‘πŸΌ I added onion and garlic and served with mashed potato and steamed vegges.

Jessica Hansen

I’m never ever making steak with mushroom sauce in a pot and pan ever again!!
This was so easy and came out with the most tender steak and creamy/tasty sauce.
Only change i made was to add a teaspoon of crushed garlic when i thickened the sauce.

An absolute hit!

My husband absolutely loved this recipe and it will be a favourite in our house. Sadly I can’t eat it as I am dairy intolerant but I am sure I would also love it. It is so quick easy to prepare before going to work. I like easy as I work full time and don’t have time for a lot of slicing and dicing. The only thing I changed was I don’t like to thicken with cornflour so I used Deb Instant Mashed potato. I served it with Mashed Potato and Veg my husband commented how much he loved it and could I make it again.

Most slow cookers have low and high settings πŸ™‚
Is yours a multi cooker perhaps and not an actual slow cooker?

Martin Koh

June 10, 2017

What do you mean turn it to HIGH? Is that for slow cooker??? I dont have that on my cooking utensil.

I make this with chicken breast and change the beef stock cube to chicken stock tastes amazing and my family love it.

I’m not really sure?
What would you normally sub it with in other recipes?
MAYBE coconut cream but it could alter taste and wouldn’t be as thick so may need thickening?

I think you could yes πŸ™‚


May 14, 2017

Can i use phily cream 4 cooking instead of cream?


May 13, 2017

Is there an alternative to use instead of cream as i have a child that is Gluten and Dairy intolerant?

Samantha Cooper

May 12, 2017

Omgosh it was amazing. Steak fell apart when you cut it. It was a big hit with the partner and i. Deff gonna be making again. I used scotch fillet steak.

It’s a cream that resists splitting under heat
Found in the regular chilled cream section
In Australia I use the Bulla brand


January 14, 2017

what is cooking cream? please

Lovely with a creamy mash and veg or hot chips πŸ™‚


August 15, 2016

I’m making this for dinner tonight, Hubby is pretty excited
What did you all serve it with?

I have cooked this several times now, and tonight – threw a couple of sausages in as well.
Such a versatile creamy sauce – a really lovely dish.
(I have also put 1/2 teaspoon of pepper in on occasion to make it a ‘peppery mushroom’ sauce for another option)

Joyce Greiving

June 15, 2016

Made this for dinner last night. Very delicious

Did you use a cooking cream as that shouldn’t split?
What you can do to bring it back is to mix it really well with a tsp of cornflour to bring it back together.
Remember while it may not look nice split is still ok to eat πŸ™‚

Hi i have this in the slow cooker right now but the cream has curdled. Will it still be ok?
