Baby Recipe: Basic Beef

Here's a basic beef recipe that can be prepared and kept frozen in individual portions. I've found that this is very convenient, as each of these individual portions can be easily used in a main meal of rice/pasta/potatoes etc. Also, I usually buy steak meat and these have to be thawed as a whole. So this method is useful when you're buying blocks of meat, as all the meat can be cooked in one go.

Frozen beef in broth

A medium sized beef steak (cut into 1cm cubes)
1/4 onion (finely chopped)
1/2 tsp ground cumin

Put everything together in a pot with water, up to about 1 cm above the level of beef. Cook until the beef is soft and thoroughly cooked through. Put the beef into portion sized containers with a bit of the leftover liquid and freeze. If there is still some soup left, this can be used as stock to cook rice etc. Cumin is one of my favourite spices and it gives the beef a mild, but flavoursome taste.
