Recipe | Beef & sweet potato stew

Stew, Winter Warmer, Beef, Sweet Potato,
There’s nothing more comforting in winter than a stew and there’s definitely nothing more satisfying than the minimal washing-up after a one pot meal. This ticks both boxes and is so full of goodness, you won’t be catching a winter cold! The red Thai flavours pack a subtle heat, but of course, add more if you like things spicy. This recipe will stretch to four portions, and will certainly warm your cockles.

Ingredients
·         500g beef mince (I usually go for 5% fat)
·         1 onion, diced
·         3 tbs red Thai curry paste (or if you’re not using a jar, one of those little pots will do)
·         2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
·         1 tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
·         200ml coconut milk/cream
·         600ml beef/vegetable stock (I’ve used both and don’t have a preference)
·         75-100g kale, stalks removed and shredded

Method
·         Heat 1 tbs oil in a frying pan or casserole dish (I love my Le Creuset one for one pot meals such as this one). Add the onion and mince and cook for 4 minutes
·         Stir in the curry paste, chickpeas and sweet potato. Continue to cook for 3 minutes
·         Add the coconut milk/cream and stock. Bring to the boil and leave covered at a simmer for 8-10 minutes
·         Add the kale and cook for a further 2 minutes
·         Check the sweet potato is cooked (it will be if the chunks are small) and ladle into bowls
·         Garnish with coriander (optional)
Stew, Winter Warmer, Beef, Sweet Potato,
Okay, so it may not be the most photogenic bowl of food, but it’s really tasty and the perfect winter warmer. This one’s not really a hit with Alfie (he didn’t like the chickpeas or kale) but would make a great, easy family dinner.
