Recipe Allergy:Meat

Recipe Ingredients:

For the stew:
400g organic beef stewing steak, cut into 2cm cubes
1 organic onion, chopped
1.5 tsp organic cinnamon
A few twists of organic black pepper

320ml water
300g (about 2) organic sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped into 2cm cubes

For the mash:
2 organic carrots, sliced 2cm thick
half organic celeriac, chopped into 3cm cubes
400g (6 medium) organic new potatoes, quartered

Recipe Method:

For the stew:
Step 1 – Pre-heat the oven 160C/gas mark 3. Choose an ovenproof dish where the beef will fit in no more than 2 layers. Put the diced beef, onions, cinnamon, black pepper and water into the ovenproof dish with a tight fitting lid (or cover with foil)
Step 2 – Slow cock for 3 hours. Check and stir the stew half way through the cooking time and make sure there is enough water just covering the beef. Add more water if needed to keep the beef covered.
Step 3 – After 3 hours, add the sweet potato and cook for a further 45-55 minutes until the sweet potato is tender
Step 4 – The beef stew can be served as it is for adults and toddlers. It should be soft enough to mash for babies from 10 months. Otherwise use a hand blender to smooth the food to the right texture for younger babies from 7 months.

For the mash:
Step 1 – Put the potatoes in a pan of water and bring to the boil for 10 minutes.
Step 2 – Add the carrots and celeriac to the potatoes and boil for a further 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender
Step 3 – Mash or smooth the vegetables to the required consistency
