Beef And Eggplant Stew 

Its summer in the UK right now so why am i sharing a winter recipe? Because its cold, wet and we are all ill! We decided just before our last shopping trip to widen our variety of fresh vegetables that we buy so we picked a few new ones to try including eggplant, i can’t believe we have never bought it before! So today we decided to add it to our beef stew and it was a big hit! 

I love, love stews because you can fill them with plenty of fresh vegetables! We used carrots, peppers, onions, spinich and the eggplant. 

We buy our beef from the local farm shop,  we love to buy local and support small businesses where we can,  its always better quality! 

Heres the recipe!! 

350g stewing steak

2 red onions

2 peppers

4 large carrots 

1 eggplant

Couple handfuls spinich 

2 tins chopped tomatoes

1 litre beef stock (we use kallo low salt) 

2TBS Italian seasoning 

Directions 

Chop onions and peppers and place on the bottom of the slow cooker 

Peel and chop carrots into about an inch long chunks 

Cut the eggplant into cubes then add spinich,  tomatoes and stock and stir

Lay beef on the top and sprinkle with seasoning

Cook for approx 6-8 hours on low or 4-6 hours on high carrots should be soft enough to easily put a fork in and beef falls apart easy. 

Enjoy 🙂

  1. I am always looking for new recipes for my slow cooker and I might give this one a go. I haven’t done a beef stew in a while and you are right, it’s perfect for your very cold and wet summer. Hope for some son soon!

  2. Bummer you’re all sick! Glad you were able to enjoy a nice stew – hopefully it hit the spot 🙂 Something I enjoy making with eggplant is lasagna! Just cut lengthwise, let sweat for a little bit, then prepare as if they were noodles! Hope everyone is better soon!

  3. Hope you all get to feeling better soon.
    Stew is perfect all year round in my opinion, but I have to admit I have never thought of adding eggplant into it.
    I may have to give that a try soon, if my boyfriend is ok with trying it.
