One Pot Casserole Recipe


1kg diced beef *
1 onion, diced
2 celery sticks, sliced
2 carrots, diced
3 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 tbsp plain flour
3 cups beef stock
1/4 cup tomato paste
1-2 bay leaves, fresh or dried
4 sprigs fresh thyme, or rosemary as a substitute

*Chuck, gravy, topside or blade beef are the best cuts for casseroles. Just remember to keep your beef cut of choice, consistent in size, for example 3cm cubes


1. Preheat the oven to 180’c. Cut beef into 3cm cubes then season with salt, pepper and 2 tbsp oil. Heat a fry pan over a medium-high heat. Brown the beef in 2 or 3 batches. Remove each batch and place in a casserole dish.

2. Reduce heat in the pan and add a little oil. Lightly fry onion, celery and carrots for 1-2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3. Sprinkle in the flour and stir til vegetables are all coated. Gradually pour in stock, tomato paste, stirring well. Add potatoes and herbs, stir until the mixture boils.

4. Add vegetable mixture to the casserole dish, stirring to combined altogether.  Cover the casserole dish, place in oven and cook til the beef is tender. Stir every 40 minutes and add water if needed (just to keep ingredients covered with liquid)

5. Suggested cooking times for different beef cuts;
Chuck or gravy beef – 2 to 2 1/2 hours
Topside, round or blade – 1 to 1 1/2 hours
