This is one of those meals that’s perfect for when you need something ready and waiting for you after a long or busy day!
I don’t always like to use the slow cooker (prefer to use the oven) but this one works well in it and makes life super easy!
500g diced beef
2 large carrots
1 large parsnip
1/2 butternut squash
6-8 small mushrooms
2 tablespoons of flour
1 tablespoon tomato purée
1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
250ml red wine
150ml beef stock
Prep the veg- slice the onions and cut everything else into large chunks. Leave the mushrooms whole.
Pour the beef into a slow cooker that’s warming up
Add the parsley and thyme
Add the flour
Mix well so all the beef is coated
Add all the chopped veg
And the mushrooms and mix through
Pour over the red wine
Add the tomato purée
The Worcestershire sauce
And the stock. Give it a good stir.
Pop the lid on and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low.
