Spicy Beef and Pepper Casserole Recipe

spcy beef and pepper casserole

Ingredients for Spicy Beef and Pepper Casserole:

  • 1½ lb (675 g) chuck or casserole beef
  • 2 ozs (56 g) butter
  • 1 large onion (peeled and sliced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 3 tablespoons tomato purée
  • 1 pint (570 ml) beef stock (or two beef stock cubes dissolved in boiling water)
  • 1 large red pepper (de-seeded and chopped)
  • 1 large green pepper (de-seeded and chopped)

Method for Spicy Beef and Pepper Casserole:

  1. Cut the meat into 1 inch (2.5 cm) cubes, getting rid of any excess fat.
  2. Heat 1 oz of the butter in a large pan and, when hot, add the beef, browning it on all sides to seal in the juices. Drain off any excess fat and transfer into a large casserole. Keep warm.
  3. Melt the rest of the butter in the pan and fry the onions and garlic until soft.  Add, over a low heat, the cayenne pepper, cumin, coriander, paprika and tomato puree, stirring well all the time.
  4. Slowly pour in the stock and bring the mixture to the boil and then pour it over the beef in the casserole dish.
  5. Add the chopped peppers to the casserole, stir, season with salt to taste and cover.
  6. Cook in the middle of a pre-heated oven at Gas Mark 4 (180°C/350°F) for 2 hours until the meat is tender.

Serves 4 to 6.

Note: Goes well with boiled rice or new potatoes.

    I made this casserole last week,adding some mushrooms after 1 hour, and it was delicious. Even my husband liked it, and he’s not always keen on spicy food.

    I’ve made this loads of times on Sundays – really like to heat it up for lunch at work during the week or for a quick dinner when I get home – yum!

    Great Recipe, popular with everyone I have tried it on.
    Fantastic winter or bad weather meal.
    For me, I like it with mashed potato and stir fried spring greens or cabbage and leek.
