6 - 8
Its called Hearty Beef Stew for a reason. Packed with powerful flavours of orange and cinnamon to bring out the beautiful taste of the slow cooked beef, we can't go past this one-pot wonder. Ease of cooking is at the core of this dish as the oven or slow cooker does all the hard work. Serve on-top rice, pasta or mashed potato with a serving of seasonal greens. Freeze leftovers or enjoy for lunch the following day.

750g Quality Mark beef chuck steak
2 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves
crushed and chopped
Juice and zest of 1 orange
2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp tomato paste
4 cups Campbell’s Real Beef Stock
15cm sprig fresh rosemary
A small handful of parsley
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup brown lentils
Slow Cooker Method
Pre heat oven to 150C fan bake.
Heat the oil in a cast iron casserole over a medium-high heat and brown the beef. Lift the beef from the casserole and set aside. Add the onion to the casserole and gently cook for 5 minutes until softened.
Remove from heat and add all the remaining ingredients including the beef. Stir well to combine and cover.
Place in the oven and cook for 3 1/2 - 4 hours until the meat is tender and falling apart.
Garnish with strips of orange rind and fresh parsley leaves.
We like to serve on-top of potato or kumara mash, but would go well with pasta or rice too.
For a pop of green, serve with your favourite seasonal greens.
