After all the wind and rain recently it feels like summer has well and truly left us & that Autumn 🍂 is here to stay. It’s days like these that a comforting slow cooked dish is just what we need. Mrs Darlington’s St Anne’s Beef really ticks all the boxes. Slow cooked beef that melts in the mouth, nestled in a tasty gravy made with Mrs Darlington’s Redcurrant jelly.  The recipe is on the web or like & shout out if you would like me to post it on here.
