What You'll Need

  • 1.00KG True Bites Stewing Beef
  • 225g True Bites Bacon Bits
  • Salt & Pepper
  • 30ml (2tbsp) Plain White Flour
  • 45ml (3tbsp) Oil
  • 700g Onions (peeled and roughly chopped)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (peeled and crushed)
  • 60ml (4tbsp) Hot Smoked Paprika
  • 400g (1 can) Peeled Plum Tomatoes with Herbs
  • 300ml Beef Stock
  • Sour Cream and Chopped Parsley for garnish (optional)


  1.  Toss the beef in seasoned flour to coat.
  2. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a deep pan and quickly fry the meat in small batches until sealed and browned on all sides. Remove and place in a deep flameproof casserole dish.
  3. Fry the onions in the deep pan until that start to soften and turn folden. Then add to the beef in the casserole dish.
  4. Fry the bacon on a high heat until crisped. Then add to the beef and onion in the casserole dish.
  5. Stir the garlic and paprika into the casserole dish with the beef, onions and bacon. Cook for around 1 minute. 
  6. Add the tomatoes and beef stock and let the start to simmer.
  7. Place the lid on the casserole dish and cook in the oven at 170C (325F, Gas mark 3) for around 2 - 2 and a half hours, or until the meat is tender.
  8. To serve; stir in the sour cream and garnish with parsley (or just serve with crusty bread?)


  • You may have to add extra beef stock during cooking just to stop the casserole drying out.
  • You could leave it to cook all day on low (gas mark 1), or in a slow cooker. Beautiful smell to come home too! 
  • Works well served with noodles believe it or not!
