I make this about once a week. It's super-easy to put together, and you can do it in the crock pot or even on the stove top on low heat for three hours. Delicious and smells amazing. || jools’s favourite beef stew | Jamie Oliver | Food
STEF: This is a great recipe for batch-making and freezing for future use. Remember: Herbs, herbs, herbs maketh the tasteth. Also, if you don't have a rice cooker, I really recommend it - it has made our life so much easier (and washing up so much quicker!!) for the no-fuss cooking of any grains.
