Mum’s juicy steak pie recipe is sending the internet into meltdown – but there’s a debate over one simple ingredient choice
- An Australian woman has shared her slow cooker steak pie recipe online
- The recipe takes five hours to make but has left people’s mouths watering
- However many voiced their opinions on the use of one simple ingredient
A home cook has shown off her impressive version of a steak pie – and it has sent the internet into a meltdown.
The mouth-watering meal was made using a slow cooker and by stewing the beef for five hours – slowly adding ingredients to make a gravy.
The cook said she used two fillet beef steaks, but uses whatever lean beef she has handy, mushrooms, garlic, onions, gravy granules, beef stock, soy sauce and salt and pepper.

The picture attached to the recipe shows a Yorkhshire pudding base with what appears to be potato and fresh peas with the steak and gravy mixture piled on top.
‘Oh my goodness, that dinner could not look any better,’ one woman wrote on the post.
‘I could eat this,’ said another person, tagging a friend.
However not everyone was sold on the cook’s method.
‘Who actually uses gravy granules? Yuck,’ one woman wrote.
Another person showed off their version of the same meal – and said they added different vegetables for a bit of a fresh twist
Others agreed and one went so far as to say ‘can’t cook, open a packet’.
But people quickly came to the cooks defense.
‘I use them all the time, so keep your negativity to yourself,’ one woman said.
‘Agree, I am perfectly capable of making delicious gravy but if time is short there is nothing wrong with gravy granules,’ said another.
One home cook took the time to replicate the recipe – but added his own twist when loading it with vegetables.
