This recipe was recently published in the Slow Cooker for Kids Book. My grandsons love it. Can be served with dumplings too however my girls prefer me to cook up puff pastry squares.
8 hrs 15 mins
1 kg (2lb 3 oz) diced beef
1 onion, dice
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
4 carrots, diced
6 potatoes, diced
4 celery stalks, diced
40 g (1 1/2oz) packet French onion soup mix
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
100 g (3 1/2 oz) tomato paste or
1/3 cup tomato sauce (ketchup)
400 g (14 oz) can diced tomatoes
2 cups frozen peas
2 tablespoons gravy powder
1If you like, brown the beef and onion in oil in a frying pan. Otherwise, place straight into slow cooker with vegetables, soup mix, Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste and tomatoes.
2Fill the empty can with water, swish around and add to slow cooker.
3Cover and cook on LOW for 6-8 hours.
4Add peas 30 minutes before end of cooking time.
5At the end of cooking time, stir in the gravy powder to thicken the gravy.
1Add other veggies like turnip, swede etc. if you like.

Is there anything else I can use instead of French onion soup mix as I cannot find it in England?

This was so tasty that I had two bowls! Yummy!
This is a huge winner in my house!! Not only because it is my mother in-laws recipe but because my 5 and 3 year old love, love , love it. My 5 year old is super fussy being autistic so if he loves it you know it amazing!
