Beef Stew (or Tomato Free Bolegnese) Free From: Dairy, Egg, Gluten, Nuts, Oats, Peanuts, Soya & Tomato

Now that the nights are closing in and the temperature is dropping…… There is nothing better than a hearty stew to make you feel warm inside! Here is a delcious, easy & very allergy friendly Beef Stew recipe for you!

(Plus- For anyone that cannot tolerate tomato, this is a great Bolognese substitute too! My little girl’s favourite meal is Spag Bol, but she has recently become tomato free! So I have developed this yummy recipe just for her.)

Serves 4 Adults


500g          Beef Mince (or beef skirt cut into 5cm bits)
2                 Celery (sliced)
2                 Onions (roughly chopped)
3                 Cloves of Garlic (crushed)
2                 Carrots (roughly chopped)
1                  Potato (roughly chopped)
380ml        Vegetable stock (2 stock cubes)
1 Tbsp        Balsamic Vinegar
300ml       Gluten Free Gravy (Free & Easy Gravy)
Handful    Basil
4 sprigs    Thyme

  1. Preheat your oven to 160C
  2. Roughly peel and chop your celery, onions, carrots & potato
  3. Mix flour & beef in a large ziplock bag & shake well to coat the meat.
  4. Make up your stock in a jug by using 2 vegetable stock cubes with 380ml boiling water (make sure the stock cubes are gluten free)
  5. Make up your “Free & Easy” gravy; 4 teaspoons of gravy powder & 300ml cold water, mix a little water with the powder then gradually add the rest of the water (this will prevent lumps.)
  6. On a medium heat, heat some oil in a pan & add the beef, cook for 4-5 minutes until browned.
  7. Add your veg, crushed garlic cloves, and herbs
  8. Finally, add the stock, gravy & balsamic vinegar, then bring to boil
  9. Once boiling, put your casserole dish (with a lid on) into your preheated oven
  10. Cook for 3-4 hours (Depending on the cut of the meat used)
  11. Leave in the oven on low (105C) until you are ready to eat it.
