Beef stew

£1.05     6 hours     Serves 3

Whilst we are now well into spring, there are still of course some days colder than others, and on days like these, we need comfort food. This beef stew is the ideal comfort food as you can put it together in a few minutes then leave to stew all day.

All you need is

  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 1 large white onion
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 4 small mushrooms
  • 2 large handfuls of spinach
  • 200g beef chunks
  • 680ml beef stock
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 2 tbsp passata
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • Pinch salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp basil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • ½ tsp chilli powder

To make it just

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 150°C/130°C Fan/Gas Mark 2, if you have a slow cooker you can use it instead and keep it on the low setting if doing the stew for over 5 hours if not then have it on medium.
  2. Chop up the potatoes, onion, garlic, mushrooms, spinach and beef into chunks and place in the dish.
  3. Add other ingredients and mix in well.
  4. Leave to cook either in the oven or a slow cooker for as long as you can, at least 5 and a half hours.
