Food Stuff: Beef Stroganoff (inspired) with pumpkin

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes
Cooking time: 4-8 hours

Another day where I am running around trying to suck the marrow out of every ounce of time I have on my day off. So the slow-cooker was back in action with my beef stroganoff (inspired) with winter vegetables.

I picked up some beef that was on special from the supermarket on my way home from work the night before.


600 grams stewing beef, sliced
1 onion
1 carrot
500 grams pumpkin
3 T tomato paste
½ cup water (or white wine)
A small can of coconut cream

Chop the hard vegetables up, throw them into the cooker, put the beef layer in next, then sliced onion on top. Mix tomato paste with water or wine (season as desired) and pour over the top.

I cooked mine on slow for 8 hours, but you can also cook on high for ½ the time. Half an hour before consumption pour in the coconut cream.

My dinner served up with mesclun salad. Kien likes his food all seperated at the moment so I fished out some pumpkin and carrots and threw some vegetables on the plate as well.
