A real stew doesn't need anything added.

Put a small amount of butter in the bottom of the pot and brown your veg then add your diced meat. Leave to cook slowly while covered stirring occasionally for about 3 hours- (the slower the better) at this stage the pot should be full of juices and you can add your potatoes diced into medium chunks and cook slowly for another hour or so until the potatoes are cooked again stirring occasionally. Leave to sit for about and hour before eating. Also stew is always best the next day!!

I use stock cubes for mine, but when it's cooked I remove a small amount of the vegetables and liquid and blend it (I have a cheap sainsbury's basics hand blender) and add it back in, which thickens the stew nicely.

I dont use anything either. My mums rule of thumb is if you use good quality beef, it will flavour it enough. I brown the diced beef in large stew pot and add diced onions while browning. When browned, add boiling water to barely cover it, then add diced carrots. Bring to boil and lower heat. The lower the heat, it takes longer but juices and flavours come out better. Then add potatoes and add more water so barely coverd again, Boil and reduce heat. You can add some cornflour (2pp for 20g) to thicken if really want.
I cook this at home aswel as at work (i work in residential care) and goes down well. Its also coeliac free which is hand when cooking for others.

I plan to make a stew on the weekend but am not sure how. What do you put in your stew and what's your favourite way to make it. I have diced beef but need to get the veg so wanted to pick your brains before I went shopping. Thanks in advance guys :)

Maybe 14 at a guess then. That is just based on the same amount of beef & dumplings I use

I make a delish steak and kidney in slow cooker - in the morning i brown chunks of steak and kidney, throw in slow cooker with a carton of passata, a beef oxo cube, no water necessary, add some softened onions, (before starting ww i used to add pearl barley and split lentils,) then leave to cook all afternoon. adding dumplings half hour before you want to eat! cook whatever veg we want separately, have no idea how many points tho!!!

I don't like kidney, just the smell turns my stomach. Does sound delish tho. I never brown meat or soften onions, just chuck it in. I bought a chicken curry slow cooker sachet for 2 Moro night so will report back on my findings xxx
