  • 2 tablespoons Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Black Pepper

How to

I’ve listed the ingredients for a large amount as the Beef Casserole freezes well, but half the recipe will give you a great feed!

Put the Flour, Mustard Powder, Salt & Pepper in a large plastic box (with lid) or bag and mix well.

Throw in the Beef, put on the lid of the box and shake to coat the Beef in the flour mixture.

Heat a good slosh of Rapeseed Oil in a large pan on a medium-high heat, and fry the Beef in batches until browned. Take the Beef out and leave on a plate.

Once all the Beef is browned and removed from the pan, scrape out as much of the flour mixture with a wooden spoon and add it to the Beef).

Turn down the heat to medium & throw in the Onions & Garlic and sweat for 10 minutes.

Throw in the Carrots, Celery & the herbs and stir it all up.

Add the Tomatoes, Henderson’s Yorkshire Relish & Stock, stir again.

Bring the pan to a simmer then put on the lid, turn it down a bit and simmer away for 2-3 hours until the Beef is tender.

This is just a one-pot dish you could do in a pan, a slow cooker or the oven. It goes great with a giant Yorkshire Pudding or a pile of mash.


  1. Thanks for the recipe, it looks delicious. As an alternative, try cooking the same but use Guiness (or another alternative ale to your taste) and bring to the boil with some tomato puree. Preferably once you have browned off the meat and fried the onion, add your Guiness/ale to the same frying pan and collect all the meat juices/flavours left behind. Once brought to the boil, use this as your stock and pour over the meat and vegetables before putting the casserole dish in the oven. The meat will be enriched and may appear slightly darkened with the Guiness/ale of your choosing, having been absorbed to add a different flavour to the meat.

    • Good shout, will give that a go definitely. I’ve a tasty Steak & Ale pie recipe to add at some point too!
