A rich beef stew cooked in a whisky flavoured sauce with potatoes and mushrooms. Made in a slow cooker but you could also cook on the stovetop or in the oven.
Herbes de Provence is a mix of savory, fennel, basil and thyme. If you cannot find dried Herbes de Provence use dried thyme or dried mixed herbs.
How simple is this recipe and what a treat it is! I made this once a week through the long Scottish winters and every time I made it, I had a smile on my face. The smell whiffs through the house throughout the night while I type away working. I admit I've changed the original recipe but only a tad. I put in a wee bit more stock than suggested and if its too watery I will add some bistro to thicken it up but that's it! Made this for my mother and I'm 85% sure I saw a smile! Rare think indeed. - 03 Sep 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
Lovely recipe, easy to make, tasted fantastic and the house smelt amazing. Hoping to make again for a dinner party. Also baked an Italian Herb Loaf to eat with it. Recommend trying this recipe! - 17 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
I really liked this, made a delicious stew. I doubled the ingrediants so I'd have enough for the day after... but I ate it all any way in the space of several hours. I'd definitely suggest this! Next time I might add a few different kinds of vega along with it, maybe carrots or turnip. - 27 Sep 2015 (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
