I managed to make dinner in 5 minutes flat yesterday morning, and threw it in the slow cooker before I left for work. This slow cooked beef and mushroom one pot casserole is no fuss winter grub. This serves 5-6. All of the ingredients were from Aldi.
Beef and Mushroom One Pot Casserole
Pack of three frying steaks (you could use stewing steak but as it happened this was cheaper)
Medium onion, chopped
2 sticks of celery, chopped
2 large carrots, sliced
Tin chopped tomatoes
1/2 pint beef stock
Large handful of chopped mushrooms
Heaped teaspoon dried mixed herbs
Splash of Worcester sauce
Seasoning to taste
Chop it up and throw it on the slow cooker on medium for 6-8 hours. This beef and mushroom one pot casserole was so easy and delicious, and the meat was really tender. We had some broccoli with ours.
I love my slow cooker! I frequently just tip it all in and rarely follow a recipe and it usually works perfectly.
