I spent an day looking after a family members home while workmen were there to install a new security entranceway (they are away on holiday) so to keep me busy I decided to go through their cookbooks looking for some recipes to post on 'zaar.

Flavour wise this was really nice but I would call it more a soup than a casserole. In the last half an hour I made a roux of butter and flour and used the liquid from the casserole to make a thick sauce and poured it back into the casserole and put it back in the oven, this gave us a gravy to mop up with buttered bread. Due to allergy issues I did not add the onion and celery. A big plus is that it is very quick to put together. Thank you Jewelies will try again but maybe toss the meat in some flour. Made for Edition 2 - MAKE MY RECIPE - a game of tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Perheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Throw all the ingredients into a really big casserole. Add enough water to cover (about 1 litre or a little less should be right) and about 2 teaspoons salt.
  3. Turn the oven down to 160C, pop the lid on the casserole and cook for about 3 hours or so. (Much of this time - about 1 hour - the casserole is coming up to heat so to speed things up you can bring it to a simmer on the stove in a flame proof dish).
  4. Check for salt, add a few grinds of black pepper and serve.
