Delicious comfort food!
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 much-loved Grandma died 5 years ago on January the 11th and I still miss her so much, but serving this up in her old Le Creuset pan gives me a nice warm feeling inside. She would have served this with roast potatoes and baked beans, an unusual but incredibly tasty combination!
I’ve counted the ale as 10 syns for 500ml, but it does depend which one you have.
