About this recipe: This is a recipe from the 60s when housewives were beginning to experiment with "foreign" food. It is a good wholesome recipe and there isn't anything Spanish about it, but my family have always loved it and it is quick and easy to prepare. Will cook in a slow oven for hours and come out delicious and tender.

Serves: 4 

  • 1 onion, quartered
  • 500g good braising steak
  • a few tablespoons English mustard
  • 1 tin condensed tomato soup

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:3hr  ›  Ready in:3hr10min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
  2. Fry the onion in a little oil.
  3. Cut the steak into portion-sized pieces and spread each side with mustard.
  4. Put into a casserole and pour over the tomato soup.
  5. Cover with a lid and cook in a slow oven for 3 or more hours.


The original recipe uses mustard powder to coat the steak with, but that's not gluten free so I use ready made GF English mustard.


You can use ordinary tinned soup if condensed is not available but may need to mix it with a little cornflour to thicken it a bit.

Serving suggestion

Serve with new potatoes and any green vegetables.
