SW recipe: Rosemary and garlic beef stew

Ingredients:   Serves: 6   Syns: 2 per portion

  • 800g stewing/casserole beef (lean)
  • 2 onions
  • 3 sticks celery
  • 2 parsnips
  • 2 carrots
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • salt and pepper


  1. Peel the carrots and parsnips, and remove the skins from the onions.
  2. Pop onions, celery, carrot and parsnips into a food processor and chop finely (you can do this by hand, especially if you prefer chunkier veg- but I wanted mine to be small to thicken the sauce and appeal to the children!)
  3. Coat the casserole steak with the flour, and season with salt and pepper. Crush the garlic cloves.
  4. Heat the oil in a large, non-stick pan, and throw in the garlic. Cook for about 20 seconds, and then add in the beef. Stir around, and then leave to cook for about 3 minutes.
  5. Stir again, and cook on a high heat for another 3 minutes.
  6. Put the chopped veg into the slow cooker bowl, and add in the beef.
  7. Mix together the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, rosemary and thyme with a few tablespoons of the beef stock
  8. Put the used beef pan back on the heat, and add the stock and sauce mix. Stir well, scraping away any residue left on the bottom of the pan.
  9. Add the sauce into the slow cooker, stir well, and cook on high for 4-6 hours, or on low for 8-12 hours.
