How to Cook: Beef Cacciatore

Leftover passata and cream cheese? Fear not, I have a great recipe for you to try out.

You can also add whatever vegetables your heart desires, I opted for a casserole mix as this was pretty cheap in Iceland and worked really well with the creaminess of the sauce.

I prefer to pair this recipe with some rice but it will work well with anything. This time round I attempted egg friend rice, which was…well…interesting. Suffice to say, for my first attempt, it didn’t go quite to plan but it still tasted delicious!
