Ingredients

1kg diced beef (such as casserole steak)

1tbs plain flour

2tbs vegetable or light olive oil

1 large onion

diced

2 cloves garlic

finely chopped

1tsp dried chilli flakes

2 fresh chillies

one chopped and one sliced for garnish

1tsp dried oregano

1tsp ground coriander

2tsp ground cumin

1⁄2tsp paprika

1 beef stock cubes dissolved in 500ml boiling water

2 x 400g cartons chopped tomatoes

1tbs tomato puree

1 green pepper

diced

2 x 400g cartons borlotti or kidney beans in water

rinsed and drained

Freshly ground black pepper

Handful fresh coriander leaves

roughly chopped

1 lime

cut into wedges to serve

Instructions

1Place the beef in a bowl and toss with the flour to coat evenly

2Heat 1tbs of the oil in the Chef ’s Casserole pan over a high heat and seal the beef in batches then set aside

3Heat the remaining oil in the pan, add the onion and fry gently for 4-5 minutes without browning then add the garlic, dried chilli, chopped fresh chilli, oregano and ground spices. Cook while stirring for another 1-2 minutes then tip the meat back into the casserole and pour over the stock. The liquid should almost cover the meat. Turn down to a gentle simmer, cover with the lid and cook slowly for one hour, stirring occasionally

4Check the meat is tender then uncover and simmer for 15 minutes until reduced slightly

5Add the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree, green pepper and beans. Season with black pepper and simmer for a further 30-45 minutes until the meat is tender and the sauce has reduced

6Garnish with sliced chilli and fresh coriander and serve with rice and a squeeze of fresh lime

7TIP: If you prefer, at the end of step 3, place the casserole dish into a preheated oven at 170°C with the lid on and cook for one hour. If you have some chilli left, refrigerate for up to two days, then heat thoroughly and serve in wraps as a tasty alternative.
