Hearty Beef Casserole Recipe??

Postby zojo » Tue Jun 12, 2007 4:48 pm

Does anyone have a "traditional" Beef Casserole recipe that's relatively low in fat??

I can't seem to find one any where :? :(

I've got some casserole meat that I need to use up in the next couple of days :shock:

TIA Girl's (and Guy's :wink: :P )

yeah i aint clued up on the gravox cals but you only need a tablespoon or two to thicken it. the parsnip and swede really do add great flavour to the stew

I use this beef and rosemary casserole recipe for the family and they love it....

it serves 6

600-700g diced casserole beef
3-4 large carrots,sliced
1 large onion, diced
2 sticks celery, sliced thinly
300g potato (peeled weight) diced
1 cup water
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2-3 teapspoons beef stock powder
2 tsp garlic
1 tsp rosemary
2 tablespoons plain flour

place all vegetables and potato into microwave safe bowl..cover and cook on HIGH for 8 mins. Combine all other ingredients (except meat) and mix together well. Once Veg is cooked place in meat and mix well. Add the stock mix and stir through until well coated. Cover and cook on HIGH for 8 minutes...remove lid and stir well and then cook on MEDIUM heat for 22 minutes.

Serve with rice or pasta or enjoy on its own...

You can add extra veg to it and also leave out spud.

Okay..this is what I cooked last night...

<500 gms of Xtra Trim Beef cubed
1 x Swede
1 x Turnip
1 x Parsnip
1 x Zucchini
1 x Onion
2 x Carrots
1 x Large Celery stick
1/2 Cup Tomato Paste
3 Cups Hot Water
Continental 97% Fat Free Rich Beef Casserole Mix
Supreme Gravox to Thicken

I tossed it all in the Crockpot and let it slow cook for the arvo and then served it with the following:

1 x Scoop Mashed Potato
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Peas + Sweet Corn.

It was soooooooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy :D

But I was a tad naughty..onced I had trayed up the left overs, I had to get a couple of slices of bread to mop up the gravy :shock: :P

uuuuuummmmaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!
