Sharon’s Beef Tatty goes up there as one of our favourite comfort meals. It’s warm, hearty, and makes those cold evenings more bearable. It’s a great dish to make in bulk because you easily reinvent your leftovers. We’ve had great success turning it into a lunch time pasta dish. Simply cook the pasta and mix in the left overs.

  • 1 cup Carrots
  • 1 cup Leek
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Potatoes
  • Beef Stock
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Chilli
  • Beef Casserole stock
  • Crusty Bread
  • Brown Sauce

  1. Chop onions and stir round in a large pan for a minute or so.
  2. Add all vegetables, water and stock.
  3. Cook for 10 mins then add beef and casserole stock.
  4. Mix round. Cook in slower cookers for 4 hours.
