Beef with red wine and carrots
This beef stew is so versatile, great tasting and is ideal for batch cooking as it freezes really well! 

Vegetable oil, for frying

1 ½ kg shin beef or stewing beef, cut into cubes

3 tbsp flour

2 large onions, sliced finely

600g carrots, cut into strips

4 garlic cloves, crushed

Glass of red wine,

850ml beef stock

3 bay leaves

Few thyme sprigs

Mashed or jacket potatoes to serve.

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan. Place the beef in a bowl, coat lightly with the flour and seasoning. Fry in stages, adding more oil if necessary, until everything is well browned. Transfer to a casserole dish.

Add tbsp of oil to the pan and mix in the onion and carrots. Cover and gently cook for 10-12 mins until softened, then take off the lid and leave to cook until it starts to brown. Mix in the garlic and cook for a further minute. Add in the wine and mix well, leaving to boil for about a minute, then pour over the meat. Add the stock, bay leaves and thyme, simmer, then cover and cook gently for 2½ hrs until the beef is tender.
