About this recipe: Being a working father and doing my share of night feeds, this slow cook stew is a godsend! I prepare this after work for the next day, and cook it during the night (quite safe to do so based on the fact we get up every 2 hours to feed our baby daughter). This stew is not one of those namby pamby posh nosh meals, it is a simple stew. Tastes lush, and requires minimal effort! So if you are having to juggle work, sleep, baby feeds, cooking...ok life in general...give this one a whirl. Oh the quantities I used just about fit into a 3.5 litre slow cooker, so you can cut down on quantities if you don't want stew all over your kitchen.
