With just a few days til the beginning of winter the days are getting cooler and shorter here. My favourite part of winter has to be cooking (and eating!) all of the hearty food that the season has to offer.
Despite the cooler weather we’ve actually still been cooking outside a fair bit as The Man and I much prefer the results from gas cooking. Not just snags and steaks, mind you, it’s our go-to method for cooking things like stirfries and paella too, which end up a soggy mess on the electric cooktop in the kitchen.
Last night I fired up the barbecue and tried my hand at this new recipe for beef & vegetable stew.
I used fresh beans instead of frozen and served it with couscous, sour cream and parsley. It was a hit and will go on our winter meal rotation for sure.
Like all of the best stews, it had a long cooking time, but once it was set up I left it to its own devices for a couple of hours with only the occasional stir. Easy.
The perfect warming and homely finish to a busy weekend.
You can find this and other winter warming recipes for your gas cooker here. I’m trying the choc orange honeycomb mousse next!
