Beef Curry (OAMC)

Ready In

"Something my DH came up with. Lancanshire relish sauce is similar to worcestershire but sweeter (they use fruit in the cooking process). It took 2.6kg (5 3/4lbs) of gravy/shin beef to get 2kg (4 3/8 lbs) and 600grams (21ounces) of skirt to get 500grams (17.6 ounces)(Trimmed of fat and grissle). The cup measurements for the vegetables is peeled, cut/diced. Prep time is based on you doing this, buying predone will save time but you could do what I did and got the kids involved DS and DH and had them doing the peeling and dicing while I did the rest. Sometimes it took longer but the memories are irreplaceable."

Now add the meat and mix well with the vegetables.
