This is a delicious stew that you can either make using a slow cooker, or in a conventional oven. The beetroot adds colour to the stew gravy, and also has a lovely earthy flavour. The kale is an unusual addition, but it really works, and as a widely-acknowledged super food it's a very healthy addition too. I love the flavour and texture it gives the finished stew.



Beef stew, slow cooker


Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 4 hours (slow cooker) or 2 hours (conventional oven)
Makes: 6-8 servings

Ingredients
750g stewing steak cut into small chunks
1 red onion
1 white onion
2 carrots
3 baby swedes or turnips
4 potatoes
2 beetroots
4 or 5 kale leaves
1 tbsp vegetable oil
1 cup red wine
750 ml beef stock

Method
Heat the oil in large pan.
Brown the stewing steak in batches and transfer to slow cooker or casserole dish.



Beef, browning, saucepan


Chop the onion into quite large chunks (you could also add some garlic at this stage)



Beef, browning, saucepan


Gently fry the onion in the pan that you browned the meat in.



Swede, carrot, onion, saucepan


Using the red wine, turn the heat up deglaze the pan whilst it still has the onion in it. This will enable you to get all the crispy, flavoursome bits of meat off the pan and into the stew.



Swede, carrot, onion, saucepan


Reduce the wine by about half, then add onion and wine to the pot with the beef.



Stew, beef, potatoes, carrots


Prepare the root vegetables - chop the carrot into circles, and the potato and swede into larger chunks.
