I absolutely love traditional British cuisine. It is underestimated here in the UK and virtually unknown abroad. With the right ingredients it is full of flavours and colour. This particular recipe is perfect for the cold weather, it's a comfy blanket dished out from the kitchen.

1 tbs olive oil
500gr Aberdeen Angus diced beef
1 tbs plain flour
200g shallots or roughly chopped onions
500g chanteney carrots (mini bunched carrots) topped
400g swede cut into chunks
400g chopped tomatoes
500ml beef stock
1 sprig of thyme
250g chestnut mushrooms roughly chopped


1. Mix steak with flour, salt, freshly ground pepper.
2Heat oil and fry steak and onions for 5 mins or until brown.
3. Stir in carrots and swede and cook for 5 mins.

Don't forget to sip the wine every now and then, very important.

4. Add chopped tomatoes, stock, thyme.
5. Bring to boil.
6. Cover with a lid and simmer for 30 mins.
7. Add mushrooms and cook for a final 30 mins.

By now you should have drunk at least a glass of wine. It's all about marginal gains ;-)
