Stew Pack (Carrot, Onion, Swede, Parsnip) - 50p @ Morrisons

RiTSoRiTSo

It hasn't got a capacitive touch screen, doesn't have a 200Hz refresh rate and they certainly aren't made by Onkyo!

It's a load of root vegetables for 50p!

A huge swede, a huge parsnip, two onions and a handful of carrots, just add meat of choice, some stock, two hours in the oven and you've got the perfect stew.

    I'm not sure how long they'll be available for but apparently they've been this price for a while now. I think the normal price is only a pound so still not bad if you need it.

    Didn't think to post this, as I thought somebody probably already had, so thanks OP.
    Bought a few of them last week, as it works out cheaper than even just a small swede alone which are about 55-60p.Did a nice beef casserole with dumplings and potatoes, all done in my bargain stainless steel Argos slow cooker I got via a deal on here a few years back, lovely.Can't beat a tasty and warming casserole, especially when snow and cold weather arrive later in the week? I can imagine though, there'll be some of the younger generation that look at these in the store and say "Excuse me, what do I do with them, they haven't got any instructions, do I just pierce the plastic and nuke them for 10 minutes?"
    That's not to say young people don't know how to cook, but inspired after a TV news report where they did a survey asking some college students what they'd do with an unpeeled potato, and many of them looked at it and said "what is it?"
    Have some heat!

    I think normal price varies slightly according to weight - I buy these on a regular basis and usually pay 75p-£1. They do keep putting them on offer at 50p every now and then - like when the vegetables come into season and they've got a surplus of them! It's always a great way to stock up, though.
    I usually make ox heart stew with them - Morrisons do packets of diced ox heart for about the same price, 75p-£1 depending on weight, it's good quality, tender, tasty and healthy meat and you get a fair bit for the price. Certainly the right amount to go with a stew pack. Just need your stock of choice and you've got a stew going!

    I'm one of the younger generation who fails miserably at cooking - but I do want to try making some sort of casserole out of this. No slow cooker, but I could buy a cheapie Argos one... can someone be bothered sharing a recipe?

    I have got a slow cooker which is handy, but tend to use my oven. Just set the timer, low tem. and cook for 2 - 3 hours. Easy and it is ready when I come home from work.

    Mmmm stew... I've been veggie for 2-3 years now and haven't had a good stew in so long. Does anyone have any ideas how I could make a wholesome vegetarian stew out of one of these packs? I have some quorn chicken pieces, but really fancy something beef-like :(

    ETA: Forgot to say, my mother has a slow cooker which I'm sure I could borrow without too much shame ;)

    You don't really need a recipe to make a tasty casserole, although you'll find plenty via google, and it's a cheap meal, but some people are put off because of the prep needed peeling, chopping etc.The advantage of a slow cooker is that the meat becomes very tender, so you can use cheaper cuts, and it's convenient, and of course saves a bit on the electric bill, but yes, you can achieve much the same in an oven on a low temp.Anyway here's what I do for a basic beef casserole / stew, quantities are basically down to how much you need to make, or how much you eat! BTW I'm not a chef / cooking expert, just a 40 something yr old bloke that does most of the cooking in my house.
    You'll need some beef, I using braising steak or skirt, remember in a casserole it's cheaper to bulk up on veggies than meat, but it's down to taste.2-3 beef stock cubes, mixed herbs, seasonsing, one of these veg packs, some potatoes, and a pack of suet if you want dumplings.

    First of all, peel and chop all your veg into roughly 2cm chunks, and slice the onions, and literally chuck all the veg except the onions into the slow cooker, you need these in the bottom, because they'll take longer to cook.Next, cut the meat into chunks if not already (remember the fat adds flavour), and roll around in a bowl of seasoned plain flour until covered, and cook in a frying pan on a medium heat in a small amount of oil.Once the meat is starting to brown, add in sliced onions, and cook until the meat has browned and the onions turn translucent.Now place the meat and onions on top of the veg in the cooker, and make up some beef stock.Sprinkle some mixed herbs into the bowl if wanted, season, and pour on the beef stock until it's just below the level of the meat, but covering all the veggies.Put the lid on, switch on high for an hour or 2, then switch to low, or just use auto.After a a few hours the lovely smell will fill your house, and it'll be simmering away, but don't be tempted to lift the lid and stir, just leave alone for 6-8 hours, use your slow cooker instructions as a guide as they obviously vary in speed // wattage etc.If you want dumplings, make these up about 45mins before your casserole is due to be ready, and then add them to the casserole for the last 30-45 mins.You'll find the instructions for dumplings on the side of Atora packets, but it's only suet, flour and water, although I add in some mixed herbs as well, and that's it, nothing fancy, but very cheap, and very tasty, ideal on a cold day.If you do a large batch, you could freeze some, and simply reheat in a microwave, you could also try adding a a few drops of worcestershire sauce, enjoy, and good luck!
    ;)

    Sorry forgot to mention, when you add the dumplings, replace the lid, as they need the steam to cook.

    Its certainly starting to feel like beef stew time of year.
