“This is a really easy beef casserole that turned out super-tasty. I had some veg and potatoes left in the cupboard and decided to try something new. This is a complete meal that is realatively low effort. I have put 4-6 servings, I live with two guys who devoured it so you may get more from the mix! I add dried chillies to the mix but if you don't like spicy - just leave them out. I'm sure it would taste great without!! Let me know if you like it!”
