This all-star spicy pot roast is the ultimate winter warmer and it couldn't be easier to make. This pot roast is slow-cooked with roasted root vegetables and beef brisket, which slowly releases its juices giving you a delicious saucy meal.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C.
  2. Heat half the oil in a large flameproof casserole dish over a medium to high heat. Add the onion, peppers, garlic and chillies and cook for 5 minutes or until a lightly browned. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining oil to the pan and seal the brisket by turning it in the oil until evenly brown all over.
  4. Carefully spread the beef with the harissa paste, then pour over the soy sauce and hot stock. Stir in the star anise and ginger, cover with a lid and cook in the oven for 2 hours.
  5. Remove the lid and stir in the onion and pepper mixture. Return the casserole dish to the oven without the lid and cook for a further 1 hour. Serve with carrot and swede mash.
