Beef in Red Wine DF EF

Beef in red wine

Casseroles are nice and warming when its cold outside! I used to find this sort of dish a bit daunting, but although they do take a while to cook, there's not much preparation especially if you buy the beef ready diced. They can just be left alone in the oven.

I like to serve this with baked potatoes which can be cooking in the oven at the same time.

  • 3 red onions
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 mushrooms
  • 400g diced casserole beef
  • 1 glass red wine
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 1 tsp corriander powder
  • 2 bay leaves
  • salt and pepper
  • Mix together the flour and corriander powder
  • Coat the diced beef in the flour and spice mixture.
  • Brown the beef in a pan with some oil. (Keep an eye on it as it can get a little sticky!).
  • Chop the vegetables into quite large chunks. I've found that if you chop them too small they tend to disappear. Add to the beef in the pan and fry for a few minutes.
  • Add the red wine. Season with salt and pepper and add the bay leaves. Leave the casserole to simmer for a few minutes.
  • Cook in preheated oven (180 C) for about an hour.
