    I've always wanted to make scouse but never quite knew how.

    I've made beef stew before but Scouse is diff isn't it?

    A friend of mine just browns the meat and then boils carrotts, spuds and the meat in water and then drains and then adds cold water and boils.

    Does that sound right??

    OK.....this was posted ages ago so you may not want the recipe anymore but here's how my scouse friend makes it...

    Brown your beef/steak in a big pan
    Add the onions and cook for 2-3 minutes
    Add chunky potatoes, carrot and swede
    Cover with beef stock
    Season with salt and pepper
    Leave to simmer until the the sauce has thickened and the potatoes are cooked - I'd guess about half an hour

    My friend has hers quite runny with bread, but flour or gravy granules can be added to thicken it up if you prefer it that way.

    Enjoy :thumbup: nothing like a pan of scouse in this weather!!

    The first bit - corned beef, beetroots and potatoes - sounds similar to something we have in my area called Lobby :thumbup: yum!
