Serves: 10
Preparation Time: 45
Cooking Time: 420


  • 10–12 Quality Mark beef schnitzels
  • 2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
  • 75g butter, chilled and grated
  • ½ tsp celery seeds, crushed, optional
  • ½ tsp each dried thyme & oregano
  • Grated rind 2 lemons
  • 1–2 onions, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup chopped prunes
  • ¼ cup flour
  • 2½ cups Campbell’s Real Stock - Beef
  • ¼ cup redcurrant jelly (optional)
  • ¼ cup HP or Worcestershire sauce


  1. Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while preparing the ingredients. To make the stuffing, mix together the breadcrumbs, butter, celery seeds, thyme, oregano and lemon rind.

  2. Place one schnitzel on top of a piece of damp plastic wrap on a chopping board. Sprinkle the meat with a little water and cover with a second sheet of plastic wrap. Hit firmly with a mallet or rolling pin to flatten the schnitzels so they are an even thickness. The dampened plastic will help prevent the meat from tearing. Cut the schnitzels in half cross-wise.

  3. Place a spoonful of stuffing on each piece of beef and roll up to enclose the filling. Secure with a toothpick.

  4. If desired to brown the ingredients: Heat a dash of oil in a frying pan and fry the beef olives until well browned. Brown the onion if wished.

  5. Put the beef olives, onion and prunes into the pre-warmed slow cooker. In a jug, mix together the flour, stock, redcurrant jelly if using and HP or Worcestershire sauce, and pour over the beef olives. Cover with the lid. Cook on low for 6–7 hours or on high for 3–4 hours. Serve the beef olives with seasonal vegetables.

  6. Oven Cooking Option: Cook, covered in an ovenproof casserole dish in a pre-heated 1600C oven for two hours or until the meat is tender.
