This is a huge favourite among my family and friends, and is often requested for pot-luck dinners. My Mum pulled it out of a newspaper in the early 70's. It's easy and delicious!

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup tomato ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup water

  • Additional Information

    This can sit in a warm oven for a long time, improves on being re-heated, and is brilliant served with rice. This recipe is also very adaptable, feel free to add chili, or vegetables, make in a slow cooker, etc. I would encourage you to try the basic recipe first, it's savoury and garlicky, and very hard to beat.
