4. Liverpool Football Club Scouse- Make Authentic Liverpool Scouse
If you fancy some comfort food, why not make some authentic Liverpool Scouse. Here’s how to make it, thanks to Liverpool Football Club:
Ingredients (serves four)
4 tablespoons olive oil
700g diced chuck steak
2 bay leaves
1 sprig of thyme
400g diced onion (cut into 1cm pieces)
350g diced swede (cut into 1.5cm cubes)
350g carrots (cut into 1.5cm cubes)
600g peeled and diced potatoes (cut into 1.5cm cubes)
1.2 litres beef stock
Heat a little oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat (gas mark 4/180C/350F) for about 1 minute.
Add 700g diced chuck steak and stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Cook until meat is evenly browned on all sides. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the onions and cook until soft.
Add the bitter and boil until the liquid has reduced by half.
Add the diced and peeled carrot, swede and half of the potato, followed by bay leaves and the sprig of thyme.
Then add in the beef stock, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes.
Add in the rest of the potato and simmer for an hour and a half until the meat is tender. Check the seasoning and serve.
At the Boot Room Sports Café, scouse is served in the traditional way – with pickled beetroot and pickled cabbage, chunky sliced white bread and butter.
