Tender Slow Cooked Beef Asado


Asado, in simple terms, is a stew and there are many different versions depending on the country or region. This one is not a million miles away from a Filipino asado. The richness of flavour in this recipe comes from slow cooking the beef until it becomes really tender in a tomato sauce infused with star anise, ginger and bay leaves. This is extraordinarily simple to make but does require some time as it will take about 1 and ½ to 2 hours to complete. I’ve added potatoes to the dish but you could certainly leave them out and serve it over brown rice or with salad instead. It keeps well and serves 6 which makes it a perfect meal prep recipe if you’re prepping for the week. It is suitable to do in a slow cooker if desired but I find it more flavoursome if you prep it in a large pot over the hob instead, I don’t know why it’s just one of those things!
