Smoky Beef and Chorizo Stew

This stew is one of my all time favourite winter warmer dishes. I know October has only just begun but I'm already excited for stews, pies, soups and all the rest. This recipe takes a long time but is super simple. You can put it on in the morning and just leave it to do its thing.

What you'll need:
  • 1kg stewing beef
  • 200g chorizo
  • 2 onions
  • 800g chopped tomatoes
  • 400g butter beans
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 tbsp red or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
(Makes 5-6 portions)

Heat your oven to 160c. If it's not cubed already cut the beef into chunks and slice the onions. Mix them together with the tomatoes, spices, and sugar in a casserole dish, cover and cook for 2 and a half hours.

Stir in the beans and chorizo (sliced into rounds) and cook for another 30 minutes with the lid off.

And that's it! Serve with rice, bread or mash, or just by itself. And if I needed to convince you an more it's under 400 calories a portion. Take to work in tupperware and freeze the individual portions for a quick and easy lunch.
