Speaking of casserole dishes, the cast iron Aldi ones which they release every now and then are meant to be really excellent for the price (less than £30!) but I've not been able to find one in store yet. Picked up a huge cast iron roasting dish for £20 though. If anyone finds an Aldi with any of the casserole dishes in let me know!
1 pck Venison sausages (2 packs for £4, morrisons) (pre grilledand then cut-up into segments)

Morrisons Frozen:
Sweetpotato cubes £1 (1/2 pack)
Red onion £1 (pre-fried)
Diced Onion £1 (pre-Fried)
Mediterranean Vegetables £1 (1pack)

Tomato puree or chopped tomatoes
Jalapenos
Throw some cumin and mustard seeds into the pan with the onions.
Schwatrz - Sausage casserole powder (but you can do almost anything, incl stock)
300ml of boiling water

Cook on high for 4 hours - bit runny? Throw in a handful of lentils to thicken it up. Made some last night and it's awesome. Added heat is great this time of year.

Simple and good base to start from.

All stew recipes are foolproof really, I would probably start with a beef based one.

Flour and season meat (a cheap cut, if you are going for beef then try chuck or shin) then brown it off. Remove meat from pan and sweat off some veg, I always use celery, carrot and leek along with anything that needs using up. Return meat to the pot, add stock and wine or beer plus anything else you fancy chucking in there.

Tinned tomatoes, tomato purée, Worcester sauce, marmite, fish sauce, soy sauce, black treacle, tinned pulses, herbs pretty much anything can be chucked in there. Bring it to the boil then turn the heat down to the lowest simmer and leave it stewing away until it is ready (chuck will take about 90 minutes to two hours, shin a bit longer), it’s ready once the meat is very tender. Oven or hob, doesn’t make too much difference, I normally use the hob unless I have got the oven on for something else. Lid on or off depending how much you want to thicken up the sauce.

Serve with dumplings and something green.

Congratulations on your forthcoming arrival Simon, best wishes to you and your other half.

Coq au vin for me tonight (sort of). Chicken thighs and drumsticks, bacon, chorizo, shallots, tomatoes, red wine and herbs. Chucked in a can of lentils to bulk it out.

Pretty good, got the rest of it for dinner tonight, stews are alway better once they have been left overnight and reheated.

What's happened to Monkoid? Haven't seen anything of him in a long time, somewhat concerning. Used to enjoy his devoted contributions to the cooking threads.

He's all good, just don't think he comes on here much any more. Rest assured he's still grilling, smoking and roasting up a storm.

He still gets to most home games, he sits a couple of rows in front of me at the front of the upper Holmesdale.
