Hearty beef casserole with a delicious meaty gravy that goes great with mashed potatoes or crusty buttered bread. Perfect winter dish to feed the whole family.
Portion into several oven proof bowls and top with puff pastry to make awesome individual pot pies!
Add 2 tablespoons of cornflour mixed with a little water and stir through for the last 5 mins of cooking for a thicker gravy.
This recipe was called beef and beer casserole when I were young. You can use any beer instead of stout so long as you use a tall'y (Aussie) or a normal bottle of beer (NZ) just don't add the water. Also any veggie that you would chuck into a stew will be great. This is an easy but very tasty dish. Nice to see old recipe's being enjoyed today. - 19 Jun 2011
