I shamelessly borrowed this recipe off Caroline. It’s super tasty and good for winter, if stew meat is cheap!

Serves 3.


  • 500g beef stew/casserole steak
  • 2 tsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can thick tomato soup
  • 1+ tsp of paprika
  • misc vegetables, e.g.: carrot, capsicum
  • (optional) 6-10 washed potatoes


  1. Cook steak in a large pan with the oil.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, carrots, capsicum etc.
  3. Add the soup, tomatoes, paprika, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Simmer for 30-60 minutes (the longer you leave it simmering, the more tender it will become!).
  5. Serve with optional boiled potatoes.
