Hi and thanks for the welcome. I am getting slightly addicted and now have a pile of recipes printed out to try. Very exciting! Our first dinner was Butter Chicken from the EDC and it was great too.

I have just added this to my menu for the week.

Looks amazing and I can't wait to try it out.

Nom nom  :)

ETA, Also where can I get Malt vinegar from? And is there a substitute?

I just used balsamic vinegar, and it was delicious!

I found the vinegar at my supermarket, but did think about using the balsamic.

Thanks

I made this today and its probably the most successful casserole I've ever made - it was absolutely delicious.  ;D ;D

I couldn't find malt vinegar so I think I used sherry vinegar and I didn't have an worcester sauce so I used mushroom ketchup ...

Thank you very much it was really fabulous

Thank you for that CC.  We hardly ever buy worcester sauce but when I do it seems to get used up really quickly.  I think DH must have a secret love of it and keeps forgetting to tell me.

I also have all the ingredients for it apart from the vinegar.

Each time I post a recipe I think of the UK based members wondering about the availability of ingredients or what substitutions you may need to make.  I know while our daughter was living in London for 2 years she would often ask what could she use instead of this and that!!!!! As Jo commented in an above post - balsamic vinegar works well.  Cheers - Robyn  :)  :)

Can definitely get malt vinegar in the UK - it's what everyone puts on their chips! Harder to buy here in Australia I've found.

I turned this into a stew for tea tonight as I only had 350g chuck steak . Followed the rest of the ingredients as per johnro's recipe.  Cooked the meat at 90o/30 mins/reverse/speed 1 then added potato, carrot, zucchini & sweetcorn and cooked for a further 50 mins/90o/reverse/speed 1.  Thickened at the end with cornflour/water. Good one Robyn, such a versatile recipe.

Excuse the messy casserole dish - I'd never get a job as a food photographer like JulieO & Maddy  :P :P
