- 1kg beef chuck, diced
- 2kg potatoes, peeled and chunkily chopped
- 2kg carrots, peeled and chopped
- 1 stick of celery
- 4 bay leaves, dried or fresh
- 300g beef bouillon, in 8 litres water
- Salt and pepper to taste
Peel and chop the potatoes and carrots.
Boil the beef in the stock and water with the bay leaves, salt and pepper for 2 hours, to tenderise the beef.
Add the potatoes and carrots and leave to simmer for around 45 minutes (no thickener is needed).
This recipe is best left overnight and then more potatoes added the next day as the first lot of potatoes will fall into the stock and make the stock thicken naturally.
Serve with red cabbage, crusty bread and butter.
