Recipe of the Month

Winter can be a time when  our motivation to get in the kitchen and cook a meal is low.  This super easy Slow Cooker Beef Stew is a great recipe for spending as little time in the kitchen as possible!  Once all the ingredients are in the slow cooker or casserole dish, you can just walk away and come back in a few hours to a lovely meal.  This stew will also look after your health as it is packed with veggies and high in protein.

Happy cooking, Senior Chefs!
