Country Beef Casserole with Herb Scones

Country Beef Casserole with Herb Scones is another winter warmer – good for the soul, and the hip pocket! We have now added a slow cooker version too!

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

  2. Cut meat into bite sized pieces, toss in the flour until well coated.

  3. Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and brown the meat in batches until golden.

  4. Remove the meat and place in a casserole dish. Also add carrots.

  5. Reheat the oil and add the onion and garlic and cook until soft.

  6. Pour this mixture over the top of the beef.

  7. In a small bowl mix together the plum jam, vinegar, stock and sweet chili sauce.

  8. Pour over the beef mix.

  9. Cover in foil and bake for one hour and thirty minutes or under meat is very tender.

  10. Uncover the dish and place the herb scones on the meat - put back in the oven uncovered for 30 minutes or until the scones are golden brown.

  11. Sift the flour in a bowl, rub in the butter until the mixture is like breadcrumbs.

  12. Stir in the herbs and add the milk and stir until just combined.

  13. Knead lightly until smooth and use scone cutters to cut out the scones.

  14. Cut the beef into bite sized pieces, toss in the flour until well coated.

  15. Heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and brown the meat in batches until golden.

  16. Remove the meat and place in the slowcooker (first give it a quick spray with canola oil so it doesn't stick).

  17. Add the onion and garlic on top of the cooked beef.

  18. In a small bowl mix together the plum jam, vinegar, stock and sweet chili sauce.

  19. Pour over the beef mix.

  20. Cook on low for 7 - 8 hours.

  21. To serve, make the herb scones in the oven, dish up into bowls and serve with the scones on top (you can't cook them in the slow cooker!).

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Country Beef Casserole is suitable to freeze for up to four months.
  • Herb Scones are also suitable to freeze for up to four months.

Why Use Gravy Beef?

I do get asked all the time why I love using Gravy Beef in my casserole and slow cooker recipes.  The reason is that gravy beef has a slightly higher fat content than other stewing meat – but that fat means taste.  So any beef casserole is really bought to life using Gravy Beef. I find that other beef stewing meats also end up a bit tough when cooked for a long time – as gravy beef doesn’t seem to do that.

But it is up to you – if you are really watching your weight, try reducing your portion size rather than having chewy beef that you don’t enjoy!
