Island Beef Casserole

Island Beef Casserole ~ Hearty, delicious casserole for a Winter's day #Casserole #BeefCasserole #WinterDish

Hearty, filling, easy and most of all, this Island Beef Casserole is delicious, and packed with flavor.

I have made this casserole several times over the years especially during Fall or Spring where the temperatures are still trying to settle one way or the other.

Although, I have to say, I think Gauteng has skipped the whole Spring season and jumped straight into Summer.

Unbelievable, one day we were still covered under throws, wearing Winter clothes and the very next day we had upper Summer temperatures !

Right, getting back to the recipe  .. use any kind of Beef cubes you like, even the cheaper cuts would do as the meat cooks for over two hours in the oven. More than enough time to tenderize just about any type of Beef.

Adapted from : “All-Time Favorite Recipes” cook book

750g Beef, cubed
3 TB Olive Oil
3 TB Flour
