Beef and Spuds

Beef and Spuds is a typical simple meal favored by students worldwide. In fact anybody living on a budget will benefit from this low cost high nutrient dish.

I'm not sure where this recipe emanated, my guess is that a student had a few things left in the cupboards and fridge and a crockpot. That's fine because most great recipes are born out of necessity and they live forever. Submitted by David McCarthy, Australia
