  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 500ml beef stock
  • 2 medium red onions, sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 175ml red wine
  • 1 x 400g tin plum tomatoes, roughly snipped in the tin

Step by step

Get ahead
Prepare to the end of step 2, cool, cover and chill (or freeze). To finish, slowly return to a simmer and follow from step 3.
  1. Preheat the oven to 150°C, fan 130°C, gas 2. Season the flour and coat the beef with it. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large frying pan and brown half the beef on a high heat. Transfer to a casserole, deglaze the pan with a little of the stock and pour this into the casserole too. Repeat, and stir the left over seasoned flour into the beef in the casserole.
  2. On a medium heat, cook the onions in the frying pan in another tablespoon of oil for 6-8 minutes until starting to soften. Add the garlic, smoked paprika, oregano and bay leaves and cook, stirring, for about 2 minutes. Pour in the red wine and stir to deglaze, then tip into the casserole. Add the tomatoes, apricots, sugar and the rest of the beef stock to the casserole. Bring to a simmer, add some seasoning then cover and transfer to the oven for 1½ hours.
  3. Take the casserole out of the oven and add the sweet potatoes, peppers and babycorn, making sure the sweet potato is submerged as much as possible. Bring back to a simmer on the hob and cook for 5 minutes, lid on, then return to the oven for 30-45 minutes or until the sweet potato is tender. Serve with polenta dippers, or with crusty bread to dunk.
