Hello world and thank you for tuning in to this weeks Tasty Tuesday.
Now when I say it doesn’t get any easier than this, I really mean it does not. If you can boil a kettle, cook a baked potato or toast a slice of bread then you can seriously make this dish because it is that EASY!
So what is it?
Well I call it Beef, Noodle and Dumpling Stew
And why is it so easy?
Well because it really is a case of everything in one pot and leave it to it’s own devices for the day courtesy of the slow cooker/crock pot.
Admittedly you do need a specific piece of kitchen equipment in the slow cooker but as these are becoming more prevalent in our kitchens as the costs come down and the fact that we are moving slowly but surely into winter, I decided that it was a risk worth taking and so took the leap and purchased my very own a couple of weeks ago so you are today witnessing it’s very first recipe.
Wish me luck….
So how do we make the lovely sounding dish, well first we need to get our hands on the following ingredients.
- Bell Peppers x 3 finely chopped
- Broad Beans shelled
- Egg Noodles
- Button Mushrooms
- 1 Litre Beef Stck
- 500gms Chopped Stewing Steak
- 3 Garlic Cloves
- 3 Thai Chili’s
- 1 Large Onion finely chopped
- Baby Potatoes
- Baby Corn chopped
- 400gms Mixed Beans
- Optional Dumplings
So this dish is SO simple as I say. The preparation could not be any more simple and as for cooking, well adding ingredients to a pot that you then leave for several hours is hardly cordon bleu cooking even if the results are amazing…!
Chop the Onion, Garlic and Chilli’s and Capers.
Mix the first 500mls of Beef Stock.
Pour into the Crockpot and then add the prepared ingredients.
Chop the Button Mushrooms and the Baby Corn, followed by the Egg Noodles, the Broad Beans, the Potatoes and the Peppers.
And then add them all to the pot.
Add the rest of the Beef Stock.
Give it a good mix and then take the Mixed Beans, put them into a sieve and rinse with fresh tap water then add to the pot.
Chop the Beef into sensible bitesize pieces and add to the pot.
Mix in well, put the lid on, set the Crockpot to low and leave for several hours before serving.
Eh Voila! A thick, healthy action packed stew with so many flavour and textures, you will always want second helpings!
Sorry to say but there is no food diary to report because there was no food eaten on Sunday as I was a poorly person.
I imagine I will make up for it soon though 😉
Also no exercise and no screenshots for yesterday either as obviously feeling a bit left over. Here’s hoping tomorrow will be a little better with a trifle more activity to help me reach my goals.
Stay out of the fridge.
