Gammon Stew

Gammon stew, served in Giant Yorkshire pudding which not only looks good but also soaks up all the flavours of the stew.




Ingredients

1.5 kg Gammon Joint

2 red onions

2 tsp Gia Garlic Puree

1 tbsp Gia Sundried Tomato Puree

2 tsp Gia Chilli Puree

1 tsp Gia Anchovy Puree

1 tsp cumin

330 grams cherry tomatoes or 390 g tinned tomatoes

2 tin baked beans

3 carrots

8 mushrooms chopped

1 tbsp Dijon Mustard

1 Bay leaf

1 tsp cornflour



We sped up the process of making the bonfire gammon stew by using our Gia Purees. Gia Garlic Puree – pick it up at any UK supermarket, save your time fiddling with peeling, chopping and pressing garlic. Tube keeps in the fridge for use whenever you make another dish containing garlic!


Gia Chilli Puree – available from most supermarkets, add it to any dish to add an instant kick. A little goes a long way, 1 tsp of puree is enough for some, we often use 2 tsp as we like it hot! Keep in fridge between uses.



Gia Sundried Tomato Puree – available from most supermarkets, add the richness of sundried tomatoes to any recipe. Blended with oils and herbs, the secret ingredient to any good meal. We often use in place of regular Tomato puree, to add extra richness. You will only need half the amount of this compared to regular puree!


Gammon stew, served in Giant Yorkshire pudding, absolutely fantastic and everyone loved it.

As you can see from this picture the juices are beautifully soaked up by the Yorkshire pudding, lush!!!
