Steak Casserole

The winter is creeping closer and our days are definitely getting cooler. What a better way to fill the tummies and a cold winter’s night than with this delicious casserole. And the best thing about this dish, you serve an unforgettable dinner with a very cheap cut of beef.

Serves: 4


1kg Chuck Steak, cut into about 6 slices

2 tablespoons seasoned Flour

2 tablespoons Oil

½ tablespoon dried Thyme

2 Bay Leaves

350g Onions, sliced

2 cloves of Garlic, crushed

1 tablespoon Flour

300ml Beef Stock

Salt and black Pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 160˚C.
  2. Coat the steak with the seasoned flour.
  3. Using a large frying pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil and brown the meat.
  4. Transfer the meat to an ovenproof casserole dish with a well fitting lid.
  5. Sprinkle the thyme over the meat and add the bay leaves.
  6. Heat the remaining oil in the frying pan and fry the onions and the garlic until they turn a rich brown.
  7. Stir in the flour and slowly add the stock, constantly stirring to make a smooth sauce.
  8. Pour this over the meat, season with salt and pepper and cover.
  9. Cook in the oven for about 3 hours.
  10. Do not remove the lid before the cooking time is over.

Tip: Serve this lovely dish with mashed potatoes and green vegetables of your choice. This is also an ideal casserole for a slow cooker (“Crockpot”). This very slow cooking method will produce meat that will melt in your mouth. YUMMY


About The PaperCup Kitchen

Hi there everyone. I am Nelmarie, but please call me Nel. I, like so many people out there enjoy cooking and baking. Food makes me smile and it makes my heart beat faster. The only place where I know I fit just perfectly, is in the kitchen. I have also enrolled in a few cake decorating courses this year and I think I have met my true love....not mentioning my Hubby now :D. It took me 36 years to find out what I want to do with my life and I can now say the answer is rather simple...Bake and then decorating what I've baked. I have started PaperCup in 2011 whilst we were living in Moscow, Russia. Living the life of an Expat can sometimes get very lonely and the blog has not only brought the whole world into my kitchen but I have met so many gorgeous Foodie Friends. I am so happy that I have taken the plunge and started PaperCup. I am not a brilliant writer, I am not a brilliant chef, I am not a brilliant baker BUT I do invite you into my kitchen, take your shoes of, relax, have a bite to eat and let's have a chat. A little more about me: Nelmarie Rennison, married to Christopher for 6 years, together for 12. Two lovely kiddies, Nicholas 3 1/2 and Allegra just over a year. South African, lived in Russia for two years and now loving living in the UK. Diagnosed with MS in 2000 and never felt better :D I am just as grateful for dust blowing in my eyes as I am for Angels sitting on my shoulders. I love my family, my friends, my life and I am grateful for each new morning. Looking forward to get to know you better xx

  3. My mom used to make a dish similar to this when I was growing up and it was so good! I have to say, though, I think your recipe sounds even better. I will definitely have to give it a try.
