There is nothing like a hearty, wholesome, nutritious and delicious stew during the winter time. I tend to cook stews little longer than usual as I like the gravy to be thick, coating and just enough to savour.

I have used leg meat for this stew, cooked the meat for 45 minutes with the root vegetables and spices for 45 minutes and it came out really well. I kept the spices very simple and I wanted the whole black pepper corns to be there throughout the cooking process and dominate the flavour profile.
