A tasty beef in a rich herb and garlic gravy. Perfect served with creamy mashed potato, carrots and corn cobs. You might like to include some crusty bread or soft white dinner rolls to get every last drop of the gravy off your plates too – it’s that yummy!

  • Cook: 5 hrs 30 mins

½ tsp salt

½ tsp cracked black pepper

40g of your favourite gravy (dry powder only)

2Combine flour with salt, pepper & dry stock powder and dust over the meat

5Cook on low for 5hrs, stirring once or twice during cooking

6Remove rosemary stalks and discard. Stir.

Easy to make and very enjoyable. Served this up with mash and mint peas. Leftovers will be going into a pie.

This was a hit tonight, was a bit concerned in how the meat cooked. The only thing I changed as I added in the onion at the end with the gravy and next time I will be adding the gravy in, in the last 30 mins of cooking rather then at then end

Well, this recipe is a keeper. Absolutely delicious and so easy to throw together and let do its thing during the day while you get on with life.
I made it exactly how the recipe stated., except I ran out of tomato paste, so topped it up with some tomato Gausundi paste/chutney.
I used the cooked mix as a filling for pies. Yummo !
Do yourself a flavour and definitely try this great recipe 🙂
