I love to cook stews & this is a favourite. It has a lovely rich & tangy flavour. From 'Country Treasures' cookbook.

I did this with beef and simply threw everything in the slow cooker but also added carrots & zucchini. I love the sweetness the vinegar & sugar gave it, just as if apple or sultana had been added, a lovely mild tasting curry, perfect for kids!
I love this recipe, it's the one thing I love about the cold weather coming. I use brown vinegar instead of apple cider and cook up a cheese & herb bread to go with it.
Very tasty. I cooked this a bit different than written but used the same ingredients. Instead of cooking on the stovetop I cooked in a very slow oven (120C) for about 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Great tasting family recipe which my 11 month old and 3 year old gobbled up. Thanks for a recipe that I will be using again!
