Midweek meals: Winter stew recipes

There’s nothing quite like coming home from a busy day to be greeted by the smell of a slow-cooked stew. We have found four of our current favourites which range from vegetarian to meat lover options.

No-Fuss-beef-strewThis no-fuss beef stew can be made in either the oven or slow cooker. Once cooked the meat is deliciously tender and will serve four.



The classic Irish stew gets a Kiwiana makeover in this delicious Annabelle White recipe. Serves eight.




This Southern inspired Cajun vegetable stew is a great vegetarian option and takes just 90 minutes to make. Serves eight.


Tasty-chicken-stewA traditional winter-warmer, this tasty chicken stew is best served with buttery mashed potatoes. Serves four to six.
