Slow Cooked Steak & Potato Hotpot

I’ve been getting my meat from a local butcher recently, Andrew Gordon Butchery and Fine Foods in Aberdeen.  For the steak and potato hotpot recipe, I’ve used his Diced Steak (Round Steak) from the Aberdeen Angus cattle that his meat comes from.  We really like the rich meaty taste of the Aberdeen Angus, so I knew this was going to be a great meal before I started out.

I didn’t add any fancy herbs, spices or taste altering ingredients.  I decided just to go with the flavour of the meat itself, with only some salt and pepper to help the vegetables along.  The result was a fabulously rich and healthy warming hotpot that I know I am going to make several variations of in future.

  • 1.8kg Diced Steak (Round Steak from Andrew Gordon Butchery and Fine Foods)
  • 2 Onions (Finely Chopped)
  • 1 Leek (Finely Chopped)
  • 2 Carrots (Chopped)
  • 1 Stock Pot (Use Fresh or Concentrated Stock)

Step 1. Switch on the slow cooker. Add half a litre of boiled water, and leave it to heat while you prepare the ingredients.
Step 2. In a frying pan, lightly brown the steak, which should only take a few minutes to do, then put the steak into the slow cooker.
Step 3. Lightly fry the onions and leek in a frying pan. I add the carrots for about 30 seconds.
Step 4. Slow Cooked Round Steak 2
Add the vegetables to the slow cooker, along with the sliced potatoes, and another half litre of water.

    Amazing. I don’t have any experience with slow cooking yet, so I’m really surprised by cooking time. However I can imagine how tasteful it is and just have to try it, because the photo really impressed me.
