How to Make home made stew


  1. cut meat and spice with salt & pepper, leave over night or in the fridge for 20+min

  3. put 1 dash of oil in the pot you will be using for the stew. once hot, throw in your cut cubes of meat.
    let it brown.

  5. whilst meat is cooking put veg in pot that meat was browned in, fry, until tender but not soft.
  6. throw in knorr stew gandules, and pinch of pepper, dont let it stick to the bottom of the pot.
  7. add water, 250ml should be right, and bring to a boil.if you are using the chillies- slice them and throw them in
  8. turn the heat down, over let simmer. by this time the meat should be cooked, chuck it in the pot, and let all the spices blend for about 30 min. if you do not have a pressure cooker here you will chuck in your meat with added water and cook on low heat for 2+hour until your meat is soft. Very soft.
