  • Yields: With sides makes up to 10 meals


1 onion, diced

2kg of cubed stewing beef

4 to 5 tablespoons of tomato paste

A good slurp of Worcestershire sauce

1 litre of beef stock

1 teaspoon of keen's traditional curry powder

Corn flour to thicken


1Put all the listed ingredients into the slow cooker and stir well.

2Slow cook on low for at least 8 hours, the idea is to not require teeth.

3Once meat is 'fall apart soft', place some excess liquid into a bowl. Mix in corn flour and create a lump free paste before transferring back into the slow cooker. Stir in and allow to thicken. Repeat until it's gravy consistency.


1Serve with mash and veg.

3Also works well with venison.

Does the potato freeze ok? I thought spuds when defrosted have a different texture?
