Rustic, earthy and with kale on the side

Hello Dear Reader,

We’re still trying to fill ourselves up with the good stuff on the cheap. Tonight’s supper was a beef and veggie stew with kale. That was it!

This serves four. We had two portions tonight and two will be for lunch tomorrow.

400g of diced beef

6 shallots, peeled and finely diced.

1 swede, diced into medium sized chunks.

4 large carrots, peeled and in chunks.

2 cups of stock – I use GF knorr stockpot and add boiling water.

3 leeks washed and sliced. 

Heaped tablespoon of whole grain mustard.

2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce.

GF gravy granules to thicken.

Black pepper – I don’t add salt as the stock has salt. 

I used my slow cooked and added all the ingredients in one go, set it to the low setting and left the stew to simmer away for ten hours.

I didn’t add any potatoes but used swede instead. This could be served with brown rice or crusty bread and it goes really well with green vegetables. Any leftovers can be reheated in the microwave or frozen.

Cheap, warm and filling.

Until tomorrow,

Love Froogs xxxx

  1. Snap! Although ours was stewing beef cubed with a jar of cook-in steak & ale sauce accompanied with cauliflower. Hubby had new potatoes too but I don’t eat potatoes usually. Nice easy tea.
