Hitherto a chilled-out Sunday

So this weekend we decided we hadn't enough energy to do the whole Sunday Roast thing. So thought we'd make ourselves that 'spiced beef casserole we'd given to the the 'Day's' the previous weekend.

As this recipe takes 2 hours to cook in the oven we made it the day before, which allowed us to go for a chilled out coffee at "You Don't Bring Me Flowers" cafe.

I have to say the do a ruddy good hot choc there as well a good cuppa tea.
As you can see, I've managed to keep up the knitting, not far to go now! Think Pete's starting to get a bit worried that I am actually gonna finish it, and he will actually wear it!! :D

Pete was working on some new sketches for his new series...

Soon we started to feel a bit hungry so headed back to get stuck into the tasty casserole. The recipe is my sisters and I'm yet to have found another that comes anywhere as near as good! It is LUSH!


Weeze's Spiced Beef Casserole
1.5kg Stewing / casserole beef
4 Onions sliced
1 clove of garlic crushed
225g  Field Mushrooms
25g Plain flour
half tsp ground ginger
1 tsp curry powder (when I'm not looking pete usually adds more!?)
1 tsp Muscavardo sugar
1 pint beef stock
2 tbsp Worchestershire sauce
Horseradish - as much as you want :)


Brown the meat in oil making sure the oil is HOT first, then drain the meat onto some kitchen roll. Keep same oil hot and add the onions, mushrooms, garlic and more oil if needed. Fry for 4 mins.
Then add the flour, spices & sugar whilst stirring continuously for 2 mins. Add stock a little at a time and then bring to the boil.
Place the meat back into the dish and mix it up. Place the dish in a pre-heated oven at 170oc for 2 hours - Watch the casserole if it becomes a bit dry & add more water if this happens.
Once out of the oven add seasoning & Horseradish to taste.
We had ours with rice and Kale (our new fav veg! Lush with pepper and butter). Also after trying many different Horseradish's we think Colmans is the hottest & tastiest. If you think there is a better one, do let me know. Mx
