For the past few years I have worked full time in a job which has included many trips away from home, most months I have been away every second week. Every time I get home from an away trip my husband begs me to make this dish as it is his favourite meal.
It is such a simple dish to throw together and the Thermomix does all the work. I love how easy it is, especially when I arrive home and am exhausted from driving around various parts of NSW.
This stew is such a nourishing, hearty meal and it never fails to disappoint.
I hope you love it as much as we do.
