Recipe: Beef stew

This slow cooker beauty is super cheap and easy to make. Great for stocking up the freezer!

Gluten-free, dairy-free, low fodmaps* and deliciously nutritious


1 kilo gravy beef, chuck steak or any other meat that likes to be slow-cooked

Approx 1 cup of chicken broth – see my recipe



Approx 5 large kumara or a mix of other root vegetables e.g. yams, carrots, parsnips

Add salt and pepper and any herbs you like, to season.


Chop the root vegetables to roughly bite-sized pieces and throw them into the slow cooker. Slice the meat into chunks and add to the slow cooker along with the chicken broth, salt, pepper and herbs.

Cook for 6-8 hours on low until meat and veges are tender. Serve with green veges. Voila!


If you are on a low fodmaps diet, limit the amount of kumara you use.

If you don’t have a problem with fodmaps, you might like to pan fry onion and add to the mix.

For extra taste, brown the meat before adding to the slow cooker.
