Low and Slow Beef & Sweet Potato Stew

Low and Slow Beef and Sweet Potato Stew

Designed for the slow cooker but feel free to use a normal casserole dish if you prefer, this super easy one pot beef dish is perfect for cold winter nights. With warming spices and a rich gravy, it satisfies the heartiest of appetites. We love this simply with a hunk of bread, but the dish goes well with couscous and rice too.


1kg of Country Victualler lean diced beef

700g of Sweet potatoes, chopped and cut into large chunks

300g Shallots

1 x 400g of chopped tomatoes

1 x Potts Beef and Burgundy Jus

2 tsp of garlic paste

1 tsp of paprika

A good pinch of cinnamon

1 bay leaf


First seal your beef, in batches in a hot frying pan, till nicely browned. Some people omit this stage if using a slow cooker. I believe if you have time, seal the meat. It helps with flavour and appearance of your finished dish.

Simply mix all the ingredients together well and cook in a low oven, gas mark 3 for around 2 and a half to 3 hours, or on your low setting in your slow cooker for 5-6 hours.

I’m a confessed slow cooker lid lifter, so I tend to go in at around 3 hours and give everything a stir.

Your meat should be tender and the sweet potatoes soft enough to break apart with your fork.
