Beef casserole
This is a very easy to prepare beef casserole and it tastes great. The beef should be really tender too. 

700g stewing steak, cubed
2 tsp vegetable oil
2 tbsp flour
1 tsp paprika
½ tsp salt and pepper
2 medium onions, thinly sliced
2 red peppers (approx 250g), sliced into 5 cm strips
2 cloves garlic, chopped and crushed
3 sprigs of rosemary
2 tbsp tomato paste
450ml warm water
¾ cup chopped parsley
Zest of one lemon
150g frozen peas
150g button mushrooms, sliced (optional)

Preheat the oven to 180°C/°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4

Pour the oil to a large ovenproof dish with a lid.

Combine the flour, salt, pepper and paprika together and toss the cubes of beef in the mixture until well covered.

Put beef and remaining flour in the oven dish.

Add the red pepper, garlic, rosemary and onion.

Mix the tomato puree and water in a small bowl and then pour over meat and vegetables until just covering.

Cover and cook in the oven for 2 hours.

Twenty minutes before the end of the cooking time, add the mushrooms and peas - take the opportunity to check seasoning and add salt or pepper as required. Just before serving, remove the sprigs of rosemary. Then mix lemon zest and parsley together and mix through the casserole.

Serve with mashed potatoes or, if you like, crispy garlic bread. The kids will love it!
