Mum's Beef Stew

While my Mum was here I got Le Creuset recipes as she has one and really knows how to use it!
This is a classic British Beef stew easy and very tasty!

  • One medium Rutabaga chopped or Swede to us Brits
  • 2 small parsnips chopped
  • one large onion chopped
  • 4 carrots chopped
  • one large pack of stewing beef

  1. saute the meat in olive oil for 5 minutes to brown
  2. add vegetables with herbs de Provence (this was my choice) and a beef stock cube and a liter of water
  3. turn down to a simmer for about 2 hours
  4. just before serving thicken with corn starch
What dishes do you want to learn from your Mum?

  1. This looks like a terrific and comforting beef stew. I'd like to learn how to make egg rolls and dumplings from my mom, she made the best ones when I was growing up.

  2. See what deliciousness comes from just a few choice ingredients! There are so many dishes I want to learn from my mother - I just wish she didn't live so far away.
