Easy Steak Casserole



It's that time of year again when we can use our ovens a lot! That means lots of yummy casserole dishes to serve. When I am craving some beef for dinner but do not fancy going through all the trouble of making an elaborate beef burgundy (though it's always worth the effort, let me emphasize!) or I simply do not have much time to prepare it - this is my go to dish - a very simple yet flavorful Steak Casserole. You can prepare this in a matter of minutes (the only difficult part, if ever, is the cutting up of the steak but a very sharp knife would be tremendously helpful!). After a little browning of the beef, throw all the ingredients in a casserole dish and then to the oven and wait as the aroma of that delicious Steak cooking wafts through your house. Before you know it, it's time to sit down and enjoy your delicious meal!  

I used green peppers and celery here but feel free to experiment on your favorite veggies. Next time I'll replace one of the veggies with mushrooms or mix all three!




Ingredients


2-3 Tbsp olive oil and 1 Tbsp Butter
6 garlic cloves, crushed 
1 kilo/ 2.2 lbs chuck steak, cut into thin strips  (or bite size cubes)
1 1/2 Tbsp flour seasoned with salt (I use about 1 tsp) and pepper, to taste
2 Green bell peppers, cut into strips                                                        
3 Celery sticks, chopped diagonally
3/4-1 cup red wine (I love the deep red wine taste so I go for more!)
¼ cup water
 
Procedure

Preheat oven to 350F.  Grease a casserole dish with a little oil. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Melt the butter in it.
In the meantime, coat the steak with the seasoned flour. Sauté the garlic in the pan briefly, just until aromatic, about a minute or less. Quickly brown the beef strips in butter.
Transfer the browned beef tips (and garlic) on the greased casserole. Place all the veggies on top. Pour in the wine and water.

Cover the casserole dish with foil (double the foil) and transfer to the oven. Bake for about 2 hours or until the beef is tender. Serve with rice or mashed potatoes! Beef heaven!
