Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 lb beef tips (or diced beef) (600 g)
  • 2 cups beef stock (broth)
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp mixed herbs
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp cornflour (corn starch)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Use a kitchen paper to pat the beef dry, then coat with flour, shaking off any excess.

  2. Heat up the oil in a pan, add the beef and fry gently until lightly brown. Work in batches to sear the beef rather than adding it all up at once.

  3. Add the seared beef to the slow cooker together with the broth, herbs, salt, pepper and chopped onion and garlic, and cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8-9 hours.

  4. Use a spatula to remove the beef from the slow cooker, pass the broth through a sieve to remove any bits, then return the broth to the slow cooker.

  5. Mix the cornflour with 2 tablespoons of cold water, add it to the broth, and stir.

  6. Leave to cook on high for 15-20 minutes so it can thicken into a gravy.

  7. Transfer the beef back to the slow cooker, and give a good stir.

  8. Serve hot with your favourite side dish.
