Fall-apart slow-cooker beef brisket and ale casserole

Sometimes nothing hits the spot like a beef casserole, and as it's such a crowd-pleaser it's great to cook for the whole family, or make enough that you can squirrel some portions away in the freezer for another day. I love a basic beef casserole just made with beef stock, but honestly I think that when it's made with ale, guinness or red wine it just makes it so much more delicious that it's well worth it. What types of beef are best to use for beef stew? I love using beef brisket- it's ...

Beef stroganoff

Beef stroganoff used to be a real staple in my kitchen years ago, but I had forgotten all about it. I had some sour cream left over from another recipe recently, so decided to have a go at a lean version of it (I used to use a whole tub of sour cream!). I used to mainly flavour it with paprika, but in this version I tried a couple of slightly different additions, and I think it's the nicest one I've ever made! Just a little tip for adding in the sour cream at the end, if you gently warm ...

Allowing ...

Slow-cooked Cuban Pork and sweet potato stew

My method of cooking often tends to be 'what do I have in the cupboard, can I make anything from it'! I had pork loin, lots of sweet potatoes, spring onions and an orange and this recipe came about!

I also really wanted to make something a bit more experimental to try out on my children, and they both ate this so well I was very pleased! I usually wouldn't cook something like this without spice, but it was lovely just as it was. ...

Tender beef and ale stew

When I was 21 I got a surprise package on my doorstep, and it was a slow cooker. There was no 'from' message, but I soon figured out that it was my lovely Grandma who had sent it to me. The very first thing that I cooked in it was beef and ale stew, and I would definitely say that over the years it is the thing that I have cooked in it the most frequently. It's just simple, tasty comfort food, and the slow cooker will turn the toughest of beef into melt-in-your mouth tenderness. My ...
