Lancashire Beef Hot Pot
This Lancashire Beef Hot Pot is a taste of home for me. My mother would regularly make this dish on cold winter days. I loved arriving home from school to the smell of this stew. It is now number one on my list of favorite comfort food recipes.
To make this one-pot stew, start by browning the beef on all sides. Sauté the onions and carrots until golden. Sprinkle with flour and add Worcestershire sauce, tomato paste, and stock. Bring to a boil and add the meat. Next comes the creative bit. Remove the pan from the heat and arrange the sliced potatoes on top of the stew in concentric circles. Cover the pot and cook in the oven until the potatoes are cooked through. Remove the lid and brown the potatoes under the broiler. Be careful during this part of the process, as they can brown quite quickly. This stew is one of those dishes that tastes better the next day, so try to make it in advance if you can!
