Number of Servings: 6


    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)


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.
