One Pot Minced Beef Hotpot #LivePeasant

One Pot Minced Beef Hotpot

Today I’m very excited to share my One Pot Minced Beef Hotpot with you! I love comfort food and there’s nothing I like better than a good old fashioned beef or lamb stew. So when Simply Beef & Lamb asked if I’d like to take part in their #LivePeasant campaign, designed to get home cooks using a more rustic approach to their cooking, I jumped at the chance. Simply Beef and Lamb support both the Red Tractor Mark and the Quality Standard Mark for beef and lamb and if you visit their website you can find your nearest Quality Standard butcher. As most of us are rushed for time these days it’s good to make a midweek meal that’s not fiddly, cooks in one pot and will satisfy your family. Our ancestors would have cooked everything in one pot, there were no range cookers back then so I think it’s nice to go back to basics and think simple and delicious!

One Pot Minced Beef Hotpot

I decided to make this One Pot Minced Beef Hotpot after a quick brainstorming session with hubby. We discussed having potatoes in the stew but decided a layer of potatoes on top would be nice and to give the hotpot a bit of back bone I decided a dash of creamed horseradish would be rather nice along with lots of lovely sweet root vegetables and a few peas!

I’ve never made a Hotpot before but I have to say it was absolutely delicious and a big hit with the family. This was a very economical meal as the beef only cost me £3.20 from my local butchers and the vegetables were all good old fashioned basic ones so nice and cheap too! What I also loved about this dish was that once it was assembled I had a whole hour to myself, no veg to cook towards the end, just plate up and serve! Best of all there was only one pot to wash up after the meal, so a total win/win situation, a saving on washing up liquid too!

    This is a very popular “winter-warmer”, but to be honest I could eat it all year round 🙂 The weather forecast has just offered ice and snow for tomorrow – that deserves a hotpot I think!
