Hello Dear Reader,
I still haven’t cooked our supper in the oven and this is well into the second week of slow cooking our suppers. To be honest, it’s the perfect way for a working person to cook and come home to a quick and easy supper.
I got all of this ready before I went to work
500g of braising steak, but cheaper shin of beef will be fine.
1 bottle of beer – I used some Cornish beer HSD from St. Austell brewery – you could use any beer.
4 large slice carrots
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
salt and pepper
Knorr beef stock cube – expensive, but GF.
1 tbsp of flour – I use GF
Add everything but the flour to the crock pot, set to low and go to work.
When I got home, I peeled, cooked and mashed 2 large parsnips. I then added butter, a teaspoon of chilli and a teaspoon of cumin.
I mixed a tablespoon of cornflour with water to make a small amount of paste and added that to the casserole, set to high and stirred through. if gluten is not a problem, then just thicken with instant gravy granules.
We prefer parsnips and swede to potatoes, they are less filling and don’t leave me with the ‘stuffed’ feeling. Now, you might be able to answer this, are parnips and swede unique to my little island or are you eating them all over the world?
Love Froogs xxxx
