We have been looking on Freecycle a lot lately to source things for our new raised bed (more on that soon) and I have expanded out to also look at FreeAds and GumTree, well the other day I saw a post for a pair of walking boots in size 7 and as I’m looking to sell my old too small hiking boots I thought I’d check them out. Since they were in Lymington we decided to make a day of it and took a picnic to the New Forest and hiked to Hurst Castle.
To make the day even better we put a Tagine on to cook in the Slow Cooker before we left and came home to the most lovely smell of a cooked meal.
450g Diced Beef
1tsp minced Garlic
1 Onion, chopped
1/4 Red Cabbage, Cut into chunks
1pint Beef/Chicken Stock
2tsp Ground Corriander
2 tbs Honey
1can Alubia Beans
1can Chopped Tomatoes
Large Glug of Red Wine (optional)
Brown the diced beef in a frying pan, in batches if necessary, add to heated Slow Cooker.
De-glaze the frying pan with a small amount of the hot water for the stock and add to stock jug, make stock with one stock cube. Add the spices and honey to the stock.
Combine all ingredients in the Slow Cooker, leaving cooking on ‘medium’ until you are ready for it. At least 3 hours.
Serve with Cous Cous and fresh coriander to garnish
