Aunty Mary's Beef Casserole

I've been making this casserole for years and years and years and every time it goes down a treat, never leftovers with this flavoursome dish.

It is also one of the simplest casseroles I've ever made, and very economical too. Oh, and it's also a great way to use up those jars of plum jam you have stashed in the pantry from last year's jam making.


500g chuck or stewing steak
1/2 cup plum jam
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
Steamed rice to serve

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  Oil a 2 litre casserole dish. Cut the steak into bite sized chunks and place in casserole dish. Combine jam, tomato sauce and Worcestershire sauce and pour over the steak. Place lid on casserole and cook 1 1/2 hours or until sauce has thickened and the meat is fork tender. Serve over steamed rice.


  1. Made this up as per the recipe. We found it a little bit too sweet. Any ideas for reducing the sweetness?

  2. Cut down on the jam.
