My Favourite Beef Recipes
One pot recipes are great when you don’t have much time but still want to eat a good meal. I usually serve this beef with some white steamed rice. On this day I realized I’d run out of carrots so they were not part of the casserole. Spring is finally here so that means some gardening, on top of blogging, work and other chores. I wish you a very pleasant week!
Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC). Coat the beef with the all-purpose flour, salt and freshly ground pepper.
Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet and brown the meat on oil sides.
Add the onion, bell pepper, carrot, potato and beans to a casserole, then top with the browned beef. (I’d run out of carrots….sigh)
Dissolve the bouillon cube in the hot water. Add the tomato paste, ketchup, Worcestershire, brown sugar and vinegar and stir thoroughly until combined. Pour over the meat in the casserole and stir to combine. Put the lid on and bake 30 minutes at 350ºF (180ºC) then reduce to 325ºF (160ºC) for 1½ hours stirring every 30 minutes or so (total bake time = 2 hours).
Check seasoning before serving.

Even though I dont eat beef, My hubby is a big fan of beef. This recipe seems to be a good one for me to surprise him with a beef dish! 🙂
I think almost all hubbies are great fans of beef. Mine too!
It’s the gardening keeping me from blogging! I finally got the garden planted and I’m hoping it survives while I am out of town for a couple days. This looks incredible, perfect one pot meal we could all eat very quickly!
Talk about gardening our temperatures have finally gone up to 65F. That’s exciting but also means I have to do a little garden maintenance. Oh boy I keep on postponing!!!!
Looks good – and perfect for us down here as autumn approaches.
Autumn? we are just starting spring…
Yes autumn here in New Zealand – southern hemisphere!
Oh boy if I move strategically from one hemisphere to the other, I can escape winter here. How nice!
This looks so good, Liz. 🙂
Thanks. It did taste really nice!
Well, that recipe came along just at the right time! I have a rather largish steak thawing in my refrigerator and I do get tired of just cooking the steak and eating with mushrooms. Hey, mushrooms might be good in it too? And, I do have a few carrots left. Thanks for posting. I’m so glad to hear spring has come to somewhere in Canada. We are still whining about the greyness and rain! Well, I am anyway. Guess what I’m having for supper? Thank you Liz, wishing you a good day and rest of the week! By the way, I sent the chunky dip recipes by private message on your facebook page. Enjoy!
Oh I have to check that recipe. I’ve been so busy the last few days, I haven’t logged on to Facebook. Talk about rain, we’ve had everything today: rain, sleet, flurries, ice, wind…this weather doesn’t seem to decide what it really wants.
You can add mushrooms and anything else you deem fit for you palate. I just added whatever I had in my fridge that day. Enjoy your supper and thanks so much for your support and friendship. Have a good night!
Hope you were able to get the recipes for the chunky dips. They are sooooo good! I have not tried them all, but those I did were excellent! Cannot find similar types of dips here! I’ve still not made any since I got back home, just not in the best of health yet, cough cough! But, better days ahead and it will soon be Easter. Must get busy and make my Hot Cross buns! My favorite part of Easter. The mushrooms and carrots added were good! This could become a favorite “go to” recipe! Thanks Liz.
I just copied five recipes. I shall try them next week and give you a feedback each time. I hope the cough cough is over by now. I plan to make this next week, again. I’m glad it was good. Have a wonderful weekend. And thanks so much for your everlasting friendship. You are ever so kind!
