Beef Stew

From Dr Miriam Stoppard’s New Baby Care Book.

I have my own beef stew recipe which I cook for my family and I will safe a portion (unseasoned) for the baby’s consumption. However, it is much too complicated to introduce here as a baby food. So I have copied Miriam Stoppard’s recipes from her New Baby Care Book, in case anyone needs a beef stew recipe to use with Pasta with Soup/Stew.


250g stewing beef, cubed

Garlic & Mixed Herbs


2 carrots, chopped

2 medium potatoes

1 stick celery

250ml stock



Roll the meat in flour and brown in hot oil.

Add the stock and bring to a boil.

Add garlic, if desired, and the herbs. Simmer for an hour.

Add the vegetables and continue cooking until both meat and vegetables are tender.

Blend or chop up.
