It’s getting a little chilly and we’re starting to crave our comfort food!

Nothing beats a full flavoured stew that uses the simplest ingredients and with minimal effort. Using a few basic staples from the Marketplace, we threw this one together in the morning and by lunch time it was ready to warm our hungry bellies!

15 min + 2 hours on the stove – serves 6 people
A few cooking tips:
  • We cooked this stew in a heavy based pan on the stove, however you could also cook it in the oven at 160ºC for the same time.
  • If cooking in the slow cooker, simply leave out the extra water from the recipe.
A few flavour tips:
  • Substitute the tinned tomatoes or water with red wine or a stout beer for added flavour.
  • Add smokey bacon or chorizo (We love the nitrate free range from Holy Smoke!).
  • Use a curry paste or spice mix.
A few serving tips:
  • Stretch the stew out with lentils or beans.
  • Turn any leftovers into a delicious pie.
  • Serve the stew with lovely mash potatoes or crusty bread.
