Beef stew

Beef stew

Beef stew traditionally served with beetroot on the side. So warming, tasty and comforting on a winter's day

Ingredients for a Basic Beef Stew

for 3 to 4 people you will need:

400g diced beef

2 to 3 onions

200 to 300g carrots

1 stock cube dissolved in 700ml boiling water

700g potatoes

salt and pepper

How to make your beef stew

Chops the onions and begin to stir fry them with the diced beef over a low to medium heat while you're slicing the carrots

Add the carrots and the hot stock and bring to the boil.

Lower the heat and leave to cook slowly while you peel and dice the potatoes. Although not traditional, you can leave the skins on the potatoes if you wish.

Add the potatoes and some twists of pepper and put the lid on the pan.

Simmer over a low heat until the potatoes are soft.  keep checking and stirring from time to time to make sure nothing sticks to the bottom of the pan.

Once the potatoes are soft then should naturally thicken the stew. 

Do a taste test and add salt if needed in case the stock cube is not enough

Serve the traditional way with cold cooked or pickled beetroot for those who like it
