This is more like a stew then what I'd call a casserole. I assumed it called for beef stew meat. I did like the combination of veggies for it but in the end it gets a low rating because it mainly tasted like cloves. I felt the taste was WAY too strong. Maybe if I just used cinnamon? In the end I decided I'd use this combination of vegetables in my favorite beef stew recipe and just stick with that.
This turned out really good! Nice flavor and I loved the vegetables included in this recipe. The meat turned out very tender. I will make this again! Made for Recipe Swap No19 August 2008 game, from the Aussie Forum.
