Hi Everyone 

Today I’m sharing my simple recipe for Beef Casserole. It’s an oldie but a goody. Sometimes a simple staple family meal is all you need. Especially at this time of year. This is packed with yummy veg so it’s low fat and high flavour. It’s easy to prepare and is warming filling and tasty for these cold dark evenings. It will also freeze very well, so ideal for Meal prep too. I bought all my ingredients in Aldi so it worked out at under €10 all in. I hope You enjoy this recipe let me know how you get on. As always sharing is caring.

Love Maria 



  1. Packet of diced steak pieces.
  2. 1 small turnip
  3. 2 parsnips 
  4. 5 carrots 
  5. 2 onions 
  6. 3 beef oxo cubes 
  7. 2 cloves of garlic 
  8. Thyme, rosemary, black pepper & a sprinkle of salt. 


Chop all the veg and toss into a casserole dish with a little bit of water in the base. 

Brown off the steak pieces in a pan with the garlic, onion, thyme, pepper, Rosemary & salt. 
Add the meat into your casserole dish. Melt your 3 oxo cubes in 2 pints of water and pour over the mix stir well. Cover with the lid and place in a hot oven. I used Gas mark 7 for the first 40 minutes. Then I turned it down to gas mark 1 and left it to simmer for 1 hour 30 mins. 

This lets the meat get nice and tender. This dish will fill your house with the most divine smell. Just delicious. 

About 30 minutes before you are ready to serve dinner steam some potatoes. Potatoes are the perfect partner with this yummy casserole.
