Recipe: Beef & Mushroom Stew



It's been a while since I posted a new recipe. Mostly because it's winter and I have been sticking to the same dozen or so meals over a two week period. I'm not at my most creative in winter... But this is one that we've had a couple of times and I've not blogged about. Hubby also likes to make dumpling to go with this, but they are pretty high in Pro Points so it's up to you if you have them or not. I try to work them in by using my Weeklies for them!

Stew Ingredients:

Low Fat Cooking Spray
1/2 lb stewing steak
200g potatoes, diced
200g sweet potatoes. diced
200g carrots, diced
2 tbs plain flour
5-6 big mushrooms (or more if you're hungry!)
1 large onion, diced
Garlic, crushed
Rosemary & Thyme
Salt & Pepper
Vegetable Stock cube, make up to approx 1 pint


  1. Brown off the potato, sweet potato, and carrots in a little cooking spray. When they start to colour round the edges add the onion & garlic.
  2. In a bowl, mix the flour & herbs, and a little seasoning. Add the steak and coat in the flour.
  3. Pop the roots into another bowl for a while, and brown off the meat in the same pan. Add a little stock if you need to stop it from sticking. 
  4. Once the meat is browned stir in the remaining flour (of any is left), add the mushrooms and allow to cook for a few minutes. Then return the roots to the pan and stir together.
  5. Add the rest of the stock - it needs to just cover the meat and vegetables. Cover and simmer until the roots are tender and the meat starts to fall apart.


You can add dumplings for the last 15-20 mins if you want... but don't forget to point them!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
