I remember the first time I made Scouse for my hubby. I was so nervous that I could never do the “National dish of Liverpool” justice and would never live up to his Mum’s standard! I’m happy to report that my Scouse is a roaring success in our house and is regularly requested by all of the family! Really easy to make and a great slow cooker recipe for working days. It also freezes and reheats well.


  • 400g Diced beef
  • 2 beef stock cubes (I use knorr)
  • 1 onion
  • 500g Carrots
  • half a Swede
  • 1 kg Potatoes
  • Water
  • Salt and pepper
  • Vegetable oil


  1. Fry the beef in a little oil to brown before putting in the slow cooker.
  2. Finely chop the onion, peel and cut the potatoes into large chunks, dice the carrots and Swede.
  3. Add all of the vegetables to the slow cooker and sprinkle with the stock cubes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Add enough water to the slow cooker to just cover the mixture.
  6. Heat on auto for 7 hours.
