Winter Scenes and a Winter Green Beef Casserole


what a fabulous landscape 


and I just loved this photo


With the weather turning chilly in the UK this weekend it was nice to see this 'fella' tucking into some hay ... now I will leave him his hay and concentrate on a nice low carb dinner, have you tried this?




Serves 2 / 3
Ingredients
.450kg casserole steak, diced
1 green pepper
1 leek, trimmed
2 (medium sized) courgettes / zucchini
mushrooms, a handful 4 - 6
salt and black pepper for seasoning
mixed herbs 
gravy / stock (of choice) about 3/4 pint (to cover meat etc)
White cabbage to accompany dish

Method
Wipe / wash meat and all vegetables with water before using
Put oven on to warm up. Gas 4, Electric 180
Dice up Meat into approx 1 inch 'chunks' and place in oven proof casserole dish
De-seed pepper and cut into square pieces (or slices if you'd prefer)
Top and Tail Courgettes, then slice and add to casserole dish
Slice leek and add to casserole dish
Slice or quarter mushrooms and add to casserole dish
season with salt and black pepper
add herbs of your choice - I used dried mixed herbs
Make up your stock and pour over meat and vegetables to cover
Put lid on casserole dish, place in warmed oven, cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours until meat is tender.

Tip - I usually gently stir all ingredients at least twice during cooking 

Prepare your accompanying vegetables - white cabbage is nice

A nice warming casserole (or soup) just makes sense at this time of year.

Hope your weekend is going well

All the best Jan

Brrr! Yes, indeed at -10 degrees! We did wake up to a covering of snow this morning, but I don't think I will be rushing out to build a snowman LOL !

Enjoy the remainder of your weekend
