Farmer's Beef Stew

This is a dish that I first cooked in 2010, and has since forgotten about when I relinquished my small kitchen to the help after I gave birth to my daughter.

By way of a first post after a long hiatus from this food blog, I thought it would be nice to start out with something that I actually prepared. This is my take on the farmer's beef stew recipe that I found from a mini-cookbook that I purchased way, way back.

Farmer's Beef Stew

Serves: 4 to 5
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes

1 tbsp oil
2 tbsp chopped garlic
1 small onion, chopped
500 g beef, cut into small cubes
1 can whole corn kernels, drained
1 can crushed tomatoes
salt and pepper, to taste
sliced spring onions

1. In a pan, heat oil and saute garlic and onions.
2. Add beef and cook for a few minutes, until tender.
3. Add corn and tomatoes. Simmer until beef is tender and the sauce is reduced. Season to taste. Top with sliced spring onions.

Hot Tips!
For easier cooking, you can use tender cuts of beef which cook faster. Sirloin is recommended for this purpose. Also, cut them into uniform sizes so they all cook at the same time.
