  • This is a really simple recipe and you can get a great results fast if you use a good cut of meat like rump steak. If you have more time you can use a budget cut like round steak and extend the cooking time by about 15 mins.
  • I have made this in the crock pot and got a great result. Just make sure you only add the sour cream right before serving to stop the sauce seperating.
