Baked Beef and Veggies With Rice

Recipe by CulinaryQueen
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • In a large oven-proof fry pan (I use cast iron), brown the beef until no longer pink, about 8-10 minutes. If the beef is really lean, add a little oil to the pan so it doesn't stick.
  • Stir in the grated garlic, salt and pepper.
  • Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl and set aside. Do not drain the pan.
  • Add the onion and pepper to the pan and saute until onion becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and continue to cook another 5-7 minutes.
  • In the meantime, mix together the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, chili pepper, brown sugar and wine.
  • Return the meat to the pan and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the tomato mixture and stir to combine.
  • Lower heat and let simmer for 5-10 minutes. If mixture seems dry, add some more wine.
  • While mixture is simmering, preheat your oven to 190C/375°F.
  • Put the pan in the oven and bake for 30-40 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the cheese over top and return to oven for a further 5-10 minutes until cheese melts and starts to turn golden.
  • Remove from oven and let sit 5 minutes.
  • Serve over rice.
