Now all these cold nights are settling in it’s great to come back to something hot and tasty after a long hard day. The best bit about this is it can be prepped in the morning and cooking all day and served in the evening without a fuss! The peppered beef hotpot has 3/5 of you 5 a day, and 75% of your fibre intake, along with the low fat, sugar and saturates content, I can’t wait to make it again.


Gluten, celery, mustard, eggs & soya


400g beef diced

1 stock cube

1 carrot

1/2 broccoli

1 leek

2 spring onion

1 onion

2 sticks of celery

3 tbsp peas

1/2 green pepper

Herbs & spices

Bay leaf, sage, garlic, onion salt, chilli, cayenne pepper, black pepper

All around a teaspoon – Except black pepper we need 5!




  1. Chop up the veggies and add to a pan.
  2. Remove any overly fatty bits of the beef and add o the same pan. – This doesn’t need to be done, but personally I don’t like chewing on fat.
  3. Add a litre of the stock water on top of the ingredients in the pan and put on full heat.
  4. Add in the herbs & spices accordingly and leave to stew for about 45 minute
  5. Check when ready that the meat is fully cooked inside and it should be nice and tender.
  6. When checked, grab a few bowls and spoons and serve it out.

This can be also done in the slow cooker follow the same principle and leave on a low heat to cook throughout the day.
