Beef & Red Wine Stew.
Tender chunks of slow cooked beef in a rich red wine gravy. Topped with a puff pastry lid.


1) Add the ingredients to slow cooker. Switch on low for 8-10 hours.

2) If gravy is a little thin for your taste thicken with gravy granules or corn flour.

3) Place into individual ovenproof serving bowls. Top with 1/4 of the puff pastry. Put in preheated oven at 200 degrees Celsius for 12 minutes until pastry is golden brown. Just a quick note here. You could just cook the pastry on a baking tray but I like the softness the gravy from the stew gives the underside of the pastry when cooking in the oven.

4) Serve with your favourite vegetables and some sweet pickled beetroot for good measure.
