Easy Rib Roast - Family Meal to Homemade Baby Food

This is a great meal for the whole family, baby included, which is very high in iron, fat and B-vitamins. It honestly takes all of five minutes preparation in the slow cooker and then a quick pulse in the Philips Avent 2-1 Healthy Baby Food Maker when you get home! The puree is so good even the big people of the house will love it! You can read more about the importance of adding meat into your babies diet when starting solids in my earlier blog here. 




500g-750g of rolled rib beef (ideally get one with the string already on!)

3 carrots, chopped

2 onions, sliced

1-2 red kumara, chopped

1 and 1/2 cups of beef stock

Extra virgin olive oil (to seal the meat)


1. Turn a large fry-pan on medium heat, when hot add a little bit of oil and place in meat to seal all the sides. Remove from heat and place into the slow cooker.

2. Put in all the chopped vegetables around it.

3. Pour over beef stock, cover and cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-7 hours.


4. To make baby food, place a portion of the vegetables (about 3/4 cup) and a couple of slices of meat into the Philips Avent combined steamer blender. As you do not need to steam just place upright to blend. Pulse for a minute or two and pour into bowls!



I have another great baby puree recipe here perfect for the first time! PLUS inside my brand new book The Nourished Baby I have more easy homemade baby food recipes!

P.S I will also be doing a live cooking demo making homemade baby food with the Avent 2-1 Healthy Baby Food Maker at our Baby and Toddler Tour in Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch! Love to see you there - tickets from Event Finder here (be in quick they are going fast!!).

Happy Cooking,
