This slow-cooked dish is a favourite in our household on a cold winters night. I sometimes double the recipe and top the leftovers with puff pastry to make a delicious beef pie (see tip).....two dinners in one!
To make a beef pie, place one quantity of the beef casserole in a 22cm pie dish. Top with one sheet frozen puff pastry (thawed). Bake in oven preheated to 200 degrees C for 25 minutes or until pastry is golden and crisp.
