Caribbean pepperpot stew 

OMG!!!! This was AMAZING !!!!!!!!! It’s the first time I’ve ever made it, it’s nowonw if my favourite ever sw recipes !!!!

Chris’s exact words were. “Well that was f***ing amazing !!” So I think he liked it he he. 

It’s super easy, would work in a slow cooker too. Just make sure all the visible fat is removed from the beef. Next time I’d add more speed food I the dish too, onions and mushrooms would be lovely. Enjoy x

Jamaican classic – who says jerk seasoning is just for the 


  • Low calorie cooking spray
  • 400g stewing beef, all visible fat removed, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 2 red peppers, deseeded and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 200g green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp jerk seasoning (I added more ) 
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • ¼ tsp sweetener
  • 200g passata with onions and garlic
  • 200ml beef stock
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 200g dried long-grain rice
  • A small handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped, to garnish

Tip: Make it serve 4: Increase the beef to 800g, add another red pepper and small sweet potato, increase the beans to 300g, add another garlic clove and double the amount of passata and stock. Bake for an extra 20-30 minutes, or until the beef is tender. You will need to double the rice, too.


  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C/140°C Fan/Gas 3.
  2. Place a medium, flameproof casserole dish sprayed with low calorie cooking spray over a high heat. Add the beef and fry for 4-5 minutes, or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the peppers, sweet potato, beans, garlic, jerk seasoning, wine vinegar, sweetener, passata, stock and Worcestershire sauce. Season and stir well. Cover and cook for 1½ hours, or until the beef is meltingly tender.
  4. Cook the rice accordingly to the packet instructions, then drain well. Divide the stew and rice between 2 bowls, garnish with parsley and serve.
