    1lb of lean stewing steak - if you use take all visible fat off it will be Free on EE/Red
    4 cloves of garlic minced - Free
    1pint beef stock - Free
    330ml Guinness - 6 syns
    190ml of red wine - 6.5 syns
    200g tom puree - Are you sure that's right? 200g of tomatoes/passata or 2 tbsp of tomato puree would be OK, but not 200g of tomato puree? Anyway, tomato puree is 0.5 syns per tbsp.
    dryed thyme - Free
    1tbs Worcestershire sauce - Free
    2 bay leaves - Free
    2lb baby potatoes - Free on EE/Green
    1 large onion - Free
    3 large carrots - Free

    So about 13-14 syns for the whole thing assuming it means 2tbsp tomato puree and not 200g.

    Between passata or tinned toms? Personal preference really. I prefer chopped tinned, other people prefer passata. I think for a stew chopped would be better.
