Needed whole bottle of wine to cover the contents of the cooker. Used red onions. Added some paprika and red peppers and a few potatoes. Wife very worried about slow cooker poisoning us but family loved this meal. They asked for smoked bacon next time and some chilli, and maybe mushrooms.

I am going to use my slow cooker for the very first time this weekend for a dinner party. I want to use topside slices in a similar recipe. Anyone ever cooked the larger cuts? How did it turn out ?

Been making this one for three years now. Delicious!! the kids love it too.
Posted 2217 days ago
Tried this today absolute treat. Very tasty and filling.
Can't go wrong with slow cookers perfect for the wintry months ahead

I'm doing this for tomorrow as my 1st ever go at Slow Cooking, a chef once told me that the secret ingredient to his gorgeous steak pie was normal brown sauce (HP, Daddies etc.) I'm going tot try that along with the wine :p
Posted 2255 days ago
Fantastic recipe, adapted it a bit by adding extra garlic, mushrooms and celery, also used a cheaper cut of meat. Added port instead of the wine also included 400ml of beef stock. The results were great and a hit with the whole family.

Great recipe, nice and simple, I added mushrooms and garlic too, but I used a cheap beef cut and it was really tender. I used a cheap low alcohol red wine - delicious!
Posted 2278 days ago
Very good dish. I added mushrooms and more garlic. Smells wonderful to come home to.

yep, an alternative to wine is bishops finger ale, with a slpodge of tomato puree, if it needs it you can add sugar to counter the beer and a slosh of worcester sauce, yummy I tried it last night.

As with others on these posts, I have adapted this recipe to give a proper sauce. I really do think that from the outset it was obvious that "one cup" alone would not do it. So - more wine and the inclusion of stock is the order of the day. Furthermore, that's been six hours now and the meat is melt in the mouth and I cant wait for dinner! (so 7-9hours probably is a wee bit too long).

I used braising steak - much nicer I also used med heat not low
Posted 2350 days ago
I was suprised this used rump steak; has anyone made it with braising steak?
Posted 2353 days ago
Absolutely DELICIOUS!
I'm new to slow cooking. I've tried out a few recipes off this site and they've all turned out really well up to yet . However, can anyone tell me please - is the cup measure an ordinary 'tea' cup or an American cup, i.e. 250 mls?

I added a little red current sauce to the frying Pan a bit extra garlic . You can't go wrong !!!!!!

This was my first slow cook experience, and I have now done it twice, and third time today.. I add mushrooms, onions, carrots, 2 glasses of red wine and 2 stock cubes with a pint of water, red pepper, swede too. Very nice, Little bit of worcester sauce is tasty too.

This was the first dish I've cooked in my new slow cooker and it was all I hoped for and more! I adapted the recipe by using chopped onions instead of shallots (just because I didn't have time to go and get shallots-I would put them in next time) loads of garlic, 3 carrots, less beef, half a bottle of wine and a pint of stock (I love gravy) YUM. Served 4

just finished preparing this dish,,,i have changed it a bit,,,ive added little onions halved and button mushrooms.2 cloves of garlic a knoor beef stock cube and 2 cups of red wine...will let u no the outcome.

I find slow cookers do vary in temperature. Perhaps where it says low, you can try medium. Like and oven, you need to get to know your cooker.

I'm new to slow cooking and only just bought my slow cooker. I made this dish and left it on all day while I was at work (6 hours) on low setting but it was not cooked when I returned. I then had to cook on high for another 2 hours. Do slow cookers have temperatures? I thought it would have cooked in this time. Also, it was a bit bland and not as tasty as I had expected. Does anyone know where I went wrong??
Posted 2581 days ago
i thought the dish was a little bland,but the wife loved it thats wot matters , i allso added some kidney, and button mushrooms,
Posted 2582 days ago
Very good receipe

Definitely needs beef stock adding to cover the veg. I used 4 carrots rather than one they are the best veg for slow cooker. I swapped 1 onion for the 12 small onions
Posted 2601 days ago
This was lovely, added mushrooms and beef stock. Kids loved it, will definitely do again
Posted 2611 days ago
Dusted the chopped meat in the seasoned flour before frying, added button mushrooms to all other ingredients. Used 350ml red wine as per Dan's tip. All other instructions followed to the letter. Smells delicious and hope it will be a huge success this evening. If so, will add another star, making it four! Thanks

fantastic ! I swopped the small onions for button mushrooms added few extra carrots about 350ml red wine bit of hot water and rubbed the meat in flour before cooking. 7hours later it came out lovely a great dish..
Posted 2645 days ago
I swapped the onions for mushrooms, added more wine and hot water to make more sauce as it looked too thick and I have to say it was delcious! Making it again as it was a huge hit with my family!

Added some beef stock and chopped mushrooms, served with freshly baked bread.... Mmmm lovely!
Posted 2832 days ago
Lovely, rich dish!! Unfortunately mine boiled dry and burned a bit too?!? Add more liquid!!
Posted 2837 days ago
I half done half a batch with 200ml of red wine and it doesn't look enough sauce. Should I add some other liquid? Maybe Gemma has same problem as me - not enough liquid? Any thoughts.
Posted 2838 days ago
y is mine boiling dry and burning ?
Posted 2852 days ago
Wonderful! I swapped the small onions for mushrooms (just a personal preference) but will definitely make it again! It made 3-4 large portions for me
