Stew

 I divided one 1lb pack of stewing beef and froze half for later use. The other half was put into my slow cooker along with potatoes, carrots, parsnips, swede, onions, pearl barley and chopped apricots.

It slow cooked for 5 hours to make us enough stew for two days and a small amount of gravy to freeze for later use:

Not the best of pictures but you get the drift. I made some mini cheese scones to serve with it as well as froze some for the other batch of stew.

  1. A really good use of a small amount of meat and cooked that way it's going to taste delicious.

    1. It was quite nice but the second lot was better once the flavours had mingled.

  2. Oh, what a great idea to add some barley. I will have to try that the next time I make stew.

    God bless.
