About this recipe: A super-delicious sandwich. Beef steak is pan-seared, then cooked in a slow cooker with a sweet and tangy tomato sauce. The steak is then shredded and served in toasted burger buns.


Makes: 6 

  • 675g beef sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon steak seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 small red pepper, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 500g passata
  • 2 tablespoons tomato puree
  • 6 burger buns or baps, split in half

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:4hr5min  ›  Ready in:4hr15min 

  1. Sprinkle the steak with steak seasoning on both sides. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat until the oil shimmers and place the steak into the hot oil. Quickly brown the steak on both sides, about 5 minutes per side. Set the steak aside.
  2. Stir dark brown soft sugar, onion, red pepper, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, passata and tomato puree together in a slow cooker until the dark brown soft sugar dissolves. Place the steak into the slow cooker, immersing it in the sauce. Set the cooker on on High and cook 4 hours or set on Low and cook 8 hours.
  3. To serve, shred the steak with 2 forks or remove the steak and chop and return to the sauce. Toast burger buns or baps and serve the steak on the toasted buns.

Tried it but I think my slow cooker is the issue. Hand me down from Mum circa 1960's. So will try again! - 02 Oct 2016
