Traditional Liverpool grub!

Hey everyone!

I was recently set a task of cooking up a traditional meal from Liverpool. The first meal that came into my head was 'Scouse'. My Mum has been cooking this for me for as long as I can remember. It is usually my go-to feel good food and trust me it picks you up! 

Here is a basic recipe what I use, however you can adapt it to different ways depending on how you like it! 

875g Stewing steak, cut into cubes
2 Onions
4 Carrots
2 Leeks
Dash of Worcester sauce
3x Beef stock cubes
Salt & Pepper for seasoning
3x Large potatoes chopped.
Olive Oil


1) Place stewing steak in a bowl and sprinkle a spoonful cornflower. Toss the steak in the cornflower then place in a frying pan, with a tablespoon of olive oil. When browned, place in a large pan.

2) Cover the stewing steak with water, add the stock cubes and seasoning. Bring to the boil and then simmer for forty five minutes.

3) Once simmered, chop all vegetables and add into pan. Simmer for another thirty minutes then add the potatoes and simmer again for another thirty.

4) It is optional, however a good Scouse isn't complete without a dash of Worcester sauce! You can also serve with a side of beetroot and crusty bread!!

Well there you have it! By no means am I a cook however this recipe is delicious for a good, hearty Scouse!

Have you tried Scouse before?
