Thought I'd try a variation on good old beef stew. I used Schwartz Blackened Cajun Seasoning but I'm sure any other cajun spices would do. I used casserole steak (chuck steak or braising steak) - use your own preferred joint. I also shredded my veg using a food processor as my SO doesn't like chunks of carrot. Herb Dumplings added a nice dimension to the dish. I'd suggest saffron rice as a good partner for this dish.
