I cooked: Beef & beans

Well, actually, Hubby made the beef and beans since it is his signature dish and also to give me a break from the kitchen.

This dish is extremely easy to make yet it is delicious to eat.

Beef and beans
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 6 -7 hours
Serves 4-5 persons

1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions
1 can (400g) diced tomatoes
1/2 cup picante sauce (medium)
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon chili powder
2 teaspoons Worchester sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
300g braising steak
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 can (400g) kidney beans, rinsed and drained

Combine the ingredients in the slow cooker and cook on 'High' setting for 1 hour. Then, switch to 'Low' setting and cook for a further for 5 - 6 hours. And voila, you've got yourself a hearty and healthy dish to serve the whole family. Serve with white rice and salad.

Note: You can add more chilli powder if you prefer it spicier, but we have toned our recipe down to suit our 18 month old.
