How to Chop Herbs


1. Trim green tips from the spring onions, leaving about 8cm of stems attached. Trim the roots.

2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat. Cook the spring onion stems, mushrooms, bacon and garlic. Cook until onions soften, stirring frequently.

3. Add in wine, tomato paste, water and sugar. Bring to a boil then cook uncovered for 2 minutes. Set aside.

4. Place beef, fennel and the onion mixture in a slow cooker. Cook, covered, on low for 8 hours.

5. When just about ready to serve, bring a pot of water to boil on high heat, add potatoes. Cook until semi-soft and drain.

6. Serve casserole with potatoes on the side and sprinkle with parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

Tip: You could also use chuck steak or any stewing steak instead of gravy beef
