By mammamic



  • 1 onion sliced

  • 2-3 tbsp tomato puree

  • 1 handful peas

  • 3 potatoes quartered

  • 4 carrot sliced

  • 500g stewing steak or similar

  • 1 stock cube or bouillon made up with boiling water


  1. Brown the meat with the onions on the hob in your slow cooker pot.
  2. Transfer the pot to the cooker - put on high.
  3. Add the potatoes, carrots and cover with stock (just made up so nearly boiling).
  4. Add tomato puree (enough to make the mix very red, half to one tube)
  5. Cook on high so it bubbles for at least 5 mins. Cook on medium/low for at least 2 further hours or more.
  6. 10 mins before serving add peas.

Handy Hint

The longer you cook this, the tastier it is, the softer the meat is and the creamier the vegetable are.
