Mini Beef Hot Pot...

Tonight I made delicious mini hot pots for myself and the boys, I did slightly tweak to make it SW friendly by removing the wine and butter that I usually use.
Hot pot is a great comfort/winter food and the smell that fills your kitchen while you cooking is just scrumptious!


400g Diced Beef
3 Large carrots, diced
1 Courgette diced
3 potatos. sliced
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, roughly chopped
1 beef stock cube, or two if you like it extra beefy
Water to cover, you can also add a glass of red wine if you fancy it
Salt and pepper
A few dashes of Worcestershire sauce


1. In a large pan brown off your beef in a little fry light (oil for non SW). Once browned take out of the pan and place to one side.
2. In the same pan fry your garlic and onion for a few minutes and then re add the diced beef.
3. Cover with water, throw in the stock cube, add a few dashes of Worcestershire, salt and pepper.
4. Bring it to the boil and leave for 20 min, then bring down to a simmer and cook for a further 40min, Stiring every now and again to make sure it doesn't catch.
5. After 60 min throw in your carrots and cook for another 10min. While that is cooking put your sliced potato into boiling water and cook for five minutes. you just want to soften them. Once you have cooked your meat and carrots, take off the heat and add your courgettes.
6. Divide the meat and veg between 3 or 4 small oven proof dishes, or one big one.  Place potato slices ontop and spray with a a little frylight. ( Brush with melted butter for a non SW version.)
7. Pop them into the oven at 160 fan and cook for 20min or until the potatoes are golden and crispy.
