I've bought some really nice stewing beef.
Anyone got any tasty recipes for it?

I have made this beef stew a few times now. It is lovely and the addition of the parsnips gives it a lovely flavour.

Leave the muffin topping off if you dont fancy it but it is nice! I add more stock as it tends to dry up a bit with the amount in the recipe.

This is my basic, but really yummy one:
Fry your onions in oil in casserole dish.
Remove onions.

Add meat to seal, then put onions back in and add about a tablespoon of plain flour and coat meat. Add seasoning and dried herbs (any will do really).

Pour in a very sloshy glug or two of full bodied red wine and with your wooden spoon, scrape off the bits from the bottom and mix.

Add beef stock (mixed with tomatoe puree) to cover and any other veg you want in there.

Cook slowly for a couple of hours.

Yummy, yum, yum smile
