Method

  1. Cut each onion into eight wedges. Roughly chop the carrots and cut the potatoes into large chunks. Put the kettle on.

  2. Heat a large non-stick pan, add the mince and fry quickly, stirring all the time, until evenly browned. Crumble in the stock cubes and mix well. Add the prepared vegetables, stir them around, then pour in 900ml/1½ pints of hot water from the kettle. Bring to the boil.

  3. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 25-30 minutes, until the veg are tender. Stir in the baked beans and a generous splash of Worcestershire sauce and heat through. Taste and add salt and pepper if necessary.

  4. Scatter over the parsley, then ladle the hotpot into bowls. Put the Worcestershire sauce bottle on the table in case anyone fancies a bit more spice.

Great comfort food. Tastes lovely and the whole family love it. I don't find it watery, the beans tend to thicken the whole thing when added.

I made this for the first time tonight and it was lovely. Very quick and easy to make, very enjoyable to eat and not too much washing up! I didn't have a kilo of potatoes - and I'm glad I didn't as I think they would have been too much. I used about 600g of Charlotte potatoes and they were perfect. I added a few sticks of celery and a couple of teaspoons of Bisto, didn't bother with the parsley but served the hotpot with a generous portion of green veg. A really perfect mid-week meal for a cold evening. Will be making this again and again.

The stew went down a treat. I'll definitely prepare it again!

This is now a firm favourite of mine and I've been making it for over a year. I tend to leave out the potatoes and I add broccolli instead, without the potatoes it cooks much quicker than the time stated above and it's normally ready in around 20 - 25 mins. I've also made it using Quorn mince rather than beef and it tasted lovely.

Looking at the ingredients I didn't expect this to be as tasty as it was. Cooked in the pan it was absolutely delicious and so easy to make! Heartily recommend!

Love this. I added Bisto powder to thicken it and also some mushrooms. It's a great base to add whatever vegetables you fancy. A lovely, warming recipe. Will definitely make again and again.

Wasn't sure about this when I saw the recipe but the reviews were good and I thought that my children might like it. I didn't believe that anything with a tin of beans in it would be very nice. My children think that it is fantastic and have requested the left overs for tomorrow! I was pleasantly surprised to find that it is in fact really tasty and extremely easy to make. Will definitely be cooking it again.
