I doubled this recipe and served it for lunch the next day and it tasted even better.

Very easy to make. I used stewing steak and just popped it into the oven till the meat was really tender. I also added a couple more peppers that needed using. Left out the olives though!!! Proved I don't need to buy casserole mixes with goodness knows what in them!!!

Really enjoyed this dish - served it with new potatoes which worked well.

To get a thicker sauce and make this with cheaper meat, just follow the recipe above but in an ovenproof dish, then chuck it into an oven for an hour or so to reduce the tomatoes and cook the beef till its really tender. Delicious!

This has become a firm staple in my house. I use 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and tend to add some cornflour to thicken up the sauce if it hasn't reduced enough. I also chuck in other vegetables that I have in the fridge so have tried this with carrots, green beans, sugarsnap peas etc. All good; a great recipe.

Very easy to cook and tasty, added half a courgette and a beef stock cube to add extra flavour.

Good, chopped the olives and thickened it a little

I agree with littlelouise I also let the sauce reduce for a while because the sauce was quite thin.

great recipe though

easy healthy and tasty recipe - I had quite a lot of thin sauce so it may be worth adding a little flour just to thicken it a little.
