Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1kg of casserole steak (chuck, blade etc)
    2 medium onions, diced
    4 rashers of rindless middle bacon
    1 tblspn orange rind, finely chopped
    12 pitted prunes
    4 cloves of garlic, crushed and chopped
    1/4 tsp rubbed thyme (or 1/4 sprig of fresh thyme)
    1/4 cup flour
    3 cups beef stock (or replace 1 cup with dark beer)

Directions

Turn the slow cooker on to warm while gathering and preparing the ingredients.

Trim the excess fat from the meat and cut the beef into 2cm-3cm pieces.

Brown the beef in a dash of oil in a hot frying pan until well-browned on all sides. The pan must be hot and not overcrowded, lest the meat will stew, so this is best done batches. Transfer to meat to a slow cooker or a casserole.

Add the onions and bacon to the frying pan with extra oil if required and cook until well-browned. Add to the meat with the prunes, garlic, orange rind and thyme.

In a jug mix together the flour, dark beer or/and beef stock to form a smooth mix and pour over the beef. Season with pepper, stir to mix well and cover.

For a slow cooker or crock pot - cook on low for 7-8 hours or high for 4-5 hours.

For the oven, cook in a casserole at 140C for 2 - 3 hours or 160C for 2 hours. The slower the casserole is cooked the more tender the meat will be.
