    Being a scouser you have to love three things, The Beatles, football & scouse (it's kind of genetic!) Scouse is the most delicious stew - comforting, warming and cheap!


    1. 1. Cover meat with stock, bring to the boil, remove scum from the top, cover and simmer for one and a half to two hours until meet is tender. Topping up with hot water if required.

    2. 2. Add carrots, onion and potatoes, and cook until vegetables are soft, about half an hour, season.

    3. Serve with pickled red cabbage or beetroot

      Fantatic, the only good thing about our british winter is a big pan of scouse.

      I would like to dedicate this recipe to my beloved mother Agnes who passed away 4 years ago. She showed me how to cook this recipe over 25 years ago and it's a family favourite.


      1. Firstly, peel the carrots, onions, potatoes then slice the carrots, dice the onions and chop the potatoes in to halfs or quaters. You will then get a large pan onto the stove, place your diced onions into the pan and then put hob on full, mix the onions with your spoon until softened, then place in your diced meat with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir both ingredients together until the meat is no longer bloody, around 15-20 mins. You should then add your kettle boiled water, mix all ingredients together with the water, then add your carrots,half of your diced potatoes and 4 oxos, then turn the heat down to low. You should put the lid on the pan for the duration of the cooking. The longer this soup cooks for the better, I tend to let it cook slowley for around 1-2 hours, about half an our before I'm going to serve it I will then put the rest of potatoes in and a teaspoon/squirt of tomatoe puree. If you don't have 2 hours then you can put all your potatoes in at once and serve after 1 hour. It will be alot thinner consitencey. The longer you leave Scouce on a low heat, the nicer and thicker it becomes. I even sometimes cook it the evening before. It's lovely served with crusty bread and beetroot.

        Hi I forgot to say that you need to crumble the oxo's into the soup. This amount of ingredients feeds a family of up to 6 with second servings

        1. 1. Cut steak into bite sized pieces and brown in a pan, then add approx a pint of water.

        2. 2. Bring to boil and break the oxo cubes in a cup of boiling water, stir and then add to pan and allow to simmer for an hour or until meat is tender.

        3. 3. Meanwhile, peel potatoes then cut into bite sized pieces along with the carrots and onion into smaller pieces.

        4. 4. Add these to pan once meat is tender, season and bring back to the boil and let simmer for 45 minutes or until the vegetables are done. Stir during this time to prevent sticking.

        5. 5. Add a little water if necessary, and another stock cube if needed.

          Everyone has a version to their own taste, this is mine!


          1. Wash meat and dab into flour.
          2. Heat oil in frying pan.
          3. Brown the meat in the pan for a few minutes.

          4. Remove meat from frying pan and into a deep pan.
          5. Fill this pan with water and bring to the boil.

          6. Reduce to medium heat and simmer.
          7. Add all of the remaining veg but only half of the potatoes. (These will crumble down to thicken the scouse).
          8. Add the oxo cubes, pepper and small pinch of salt.

          9. Cook on a medium heat for 3 and half hours to soften the meat and infuse the flavours.

          10. Turn off the heat and leave to stand preferably for a few hours if u have the time if not then continue to next stage.

          11. Add the remainder of the potatoes to the scouse and cook for 30 mins or until the potatoes can be pierced with a fork. Add more salt and pepper to taste.

          12. Dish into large bowls with cooked dumplings placed ontop.
          13. Serve chopped beetroot at side of the dish and warm crusty rolls with butter to mop up the soup!
