- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 1 tsp sugar
- 700g diced Irish chuck steak
- 1–2 tbsp vegetable oil
- 2 onions, sliced
- 3 carrots, roughly chopped
- 200–300g bunch of baby beetroot, peeled and halved
- 1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
- 3 large Maris Piper potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
- 600ml dark beef stock
- 30g butter
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat your oven to 170°C/Gas 3.
- Toss the diced Irish beef in the plain flour and season well with salt and pepper.
- Heat the oil in a heavy-based, deep casserole dish (with a lid) and brown your Irish beef, in batches if necessary. Return all the meat to the pan, add the sliced onions, carrots, beetroot and the thyme leaves. Generously season with salt and pepper and mix well.
- Arrange the sliced potatoes on top of the meat and vegetable mix, taking care to make the potato layer nice and neat.
- Pour over just enough stock to come up to the bottom of the potato layer.
- Cover with the casserole lid and bake in the oven for about 1½ hours. Remove the lid and return to the oven for a further 30 minutes to crisp the potatoes.
