Tried and Tasted : Beef stew with seasonal vegetables

Welcome to my new Link-up everyone.
I hope to find many new recipes here and even find some new blogs to follow here.

I cooked Beef stew with seasonal vegetables from the Operation Transformation website. I have cooked a few of these recipes and they have turned out great. 

My camera broke the weekend and I wasn't able to take any pictures of my finished result.
But it was yummy!

500g diced beef
600g turnip peeled and diced
400g sweet potatoes peeled and diced
300g baby onions (or shallots), peeled and halved
2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
3 bay leaves (optional)
1 tsp black pepper corns
1 tsp dried thyme
15g butter
1 tsp salt

Pre-heat oven to 160ºC
In a large oven proof saucepan or casserole dish melt the butter.
Add the beef pieces and fry until brown.
Add the onions. Cover, reduce heat and cook for about 5 mins.
Add the turnip, sweet potatoes and chopped tomatoes and mix together.
Add bay leaves if using, thyme, peppercorns and salt.
Cover and place in the oven for about 2 hours.
And serve

Note: I added some carrots and blitzed the tomatoes to make them more smooth. I also added a beef stock cube.

Now for the rules:

It's not too much to ask, is it?

Happy Tuesday everyone!
