Recipe by Lou van

Traditional British beef stew, done the low fat way, based on a recipe my mother in-law cooks, although I don't think she puts tomato puree in it, I just think it adds a depth of flavour.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the steak into the crock pot.
  2. Put vegetables and some water into a pan and bring to the boil.
  3. Simmer for approx 8 minutes.
  4. Drain the vegetables, reserving the cooking water, and add the veg to the crock pot.
  5. Add the cooking water from the vegetables to the gravy granules, use enough to make the gravy thick but not gloopy.
  6. Add the tomato paste, bouquet garni, sugar, worcestershire sauce and saly and pepper to the gravy mixture, stir and add to the crock pot.
  7. Cook for 30 minutes at high temperature then 7 hours at low temperature.
