  • 500 g diced beef
  • 1 red onion roughly diced
  • 3 cloves garlic finely diced
  • 3 carrots chopped into 1cm chunks
  • 500g baby chestnut mushrooms
  • 1 butternut squash diced into 2-3cm cubes
  • 2 tsp sweet paprika (smoked if you prefer)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • Fresh thyme 1 tbsp or so of fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 vegetable stock pots (or cubes)
  • 500 ml water
  • 1 tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp tomato puree
  • 2 tbsp Worcester sauce
  • 4 medium white potatoes roughly diced into 2-3cm cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  1. Switch your slow cooker on to 'high'. Whilst this is heating up, seal the diced beef in a pot with the olive oil.

  2. Once the beef is sealed, add all the ingredients to your slow cooker and mix well. Leave on 'low' for 6-7 hours or 'high' for 3-4 hours.
