I don’t know about you but I really couldn’t live without a bottle of Lea & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce in my cupboard as it seems to have so many culinary uses. Whether it’s pepping up a Marie Rose Sauce or adding to a dish such as my Minced Beef and Onions. I remember my dad always having it splashed on an English Breakfast and my mum loved it in a glass of tomato juice – it’s a sauce we’ve all grown up with which adds a power house of flavour.
We’re constantly being told to eat more fruit and vegetables (10 portions a day was headlining this week) and less red meat, so with this in mind I developed this delicious Beef and Vegetable Casserole. The flavour of the beef is enhanced by the Worcestershire Sauce and with the addition of spelt grains, butternut squash, swede and leek it makes for a really economical, healthy and tasty meal. Better still, it’s cooked in the slow cooker so that you can come home to a fabulous meal and just add some green vegetables and mashed potato. My whole family loved this dish as the sweetness of the butternut squash and the swede really compliment the beef!
