This was really yummy and low in calories too. Served it with mash and veg and used gluten free flour. I meant to do it in the slow cooker but ran out of time so I did it on the hob, I also forgot to put the creme fraiche in but it was so nice without I don’t think I will bother getting it next time
– save the calories and cost.
Only down side- it stuck to the pan badly at the beginning despite a tablespoon of oil so not sure how to remedy that next time.

Thanks. I think I will give this a try for her then as it will be different to a classic beef stew. 🙂

Thanks Penny, I understand. I’m looking for things to freeze in portions for my Mum and she wouldn’t have creme fraiche to add. I wonder if it would make much to a difference to not add it at all?

The only reason I say that is that it may split on freezing . P
