Ingredients
 

  • 500g diced beef
  • 2 mushrooms sliced
  • 2 celery sticks, trimmed, finely chopped
  • 2 carrots, peeled, finely chopped
  • 1 brown onion, finely chopped
  • 2 x garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 x 700g btl passata (tomato pasta sauce)
  • 1/3 cup red wine or balsamic vinegar
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • Pinch of white or raw sugar
  • Finely grated parmesan, to serve
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika

Instructions
 

  • Sauté beef in batches set aside. (optional)
  • Sauté onion and garlic then add the beef followed by the rest of the ingredients
  • Slow cook for 4-6 hours on low
  • Add cornflour paste to thicken and then pour into a glass bowl and use a 2 forks to break apart the beef this is optional but it's nicer tossed through the pasta when it's not as chunky and it helps to find the bay leaves so you can take them out
  • Serve with pasta or mash and top with Parmesan

Notes

  • This recipe is great to cook in big batches for the freezer and its very diverse, you can serve it over pasta, mash, sweet potato mash, jacket potato or on toast! I also remove the beef after its cooked and blend the sauce that way all the vegetables are hidden from the eyes of Miss fussy 5!
