Made this for dinner as the wife used to use packet chasseur and we didn’t have one, the wife said we won’t be buying anymore packets. I did add an onion and used garlic powder because we only had normal tinned tomatoes after cooking everything in the frying pan I transferred everything to an ovenproof casserole dish and finished it off in the oven cooked to perfection. The only problem is the wife said I have to do more cooking.

We all loved this dish, it was quick and very tasty. I served it with mash and will definitely be making it again!

I made this last night and it was delicious. Got a "very good" from the husband and that is high praise! I used petite diced tomatoes, minced garlic and some leftover sauteed mushrooms. Other than those substitutions, which were what I had on hand, I followed the recipe as written. Made the mustard mash as a side.......a new take on mashed potatoes for us and it worked beautifully. I'm in Texas and I had to think a bit about "streaky bacon"! I'll certainly be making this again.

This is a lovely dish although I too added a little sup'm sup'm to further enhance. I added the onions and garlic but as I didn't have any red wine I used balsamic vinegar and a little water and herbes de Provence instead.

Cooked this tonight for myself and my wife and the 4 kids and from the baby right up to the 10 year old, they all enjoyed it Cooked it with creamy Potatoes on the side instead of Rice. In the menu given, I ALSO added in crushed garlic and onions whilst adding in the button mushrooms. Towards the end as it was a little drying up, I added in a little red wine, mixed it in with the chopped parley which seemed to give it a great deep taste. Great Dish and a great winter warmer.

Lovely midweek meal, I did however adapt it slightly. I used fresh garlic, added some tomato purée, red wine, extra Worcestershire sauce and some HP sauce - really made a lovely rich deep sauce. Very tasty.

Didn't use bacon, mushrooms or flour but used plain tinned chopped tomatoes and added fresh garlic, tomato puree and Worcester sauce with some courgettes, onion, red pepper and celery. Rather than a 'crumble' stock cube I used a Knorr beef 'Stock Pot'. Also added some chopped fresh basil - tasted divine! Really quick delicious meal that gave a lovely sauce and went really well with the mustard mash. Will definitely do again and again!

I also used chicken thighs and made it earlier in the day so the flavours had really enriched when we came to eating it at dinner time.

I made this with a slight adaptation of using smoked streaky bacon and it worked a treat creating a really deep smokey sauce. I would definitely do it again as both me and my fella enjoyed it very much

Thanks for your question. All our freezable recipes are marked with a blue star above the nutritional information. This dish freezes well. We'd suggest defrosting fully and then reheating on the hob until piping hot.
