Hearty, melt in your mouth beef with strips of bacon. This casserole is dark, rich and is slow cooked until the meat falls apart. The balsamic vinegar and capsicum add great flavour. Serve with mashed potato or rice. Enjoy!

This casserole is best baked in an oven safe high sided pan or dish with a lid.

Method
Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
Cook the celery and carrot in 1 tbsp oil on medium heat in a oven safe dish for 2 - 3 minutes until tender. Transfer to a plate.

The casserole is ready for baking

Remove the lid, increase the oven temperature to 220 degrees and bake for 1/2 hour.
Take out of the oven and remove the bay leaves.
Serve with mashed potatoes or rice if desired.

Tips
This casserole can be made ahead and refrigerated after 2 1/2 hours. To reheat, add 1/2 cup water, place in a cold oven, turn on to 220 degrees and bake for 45 minutes uncovered.
The flavours in this casserole go well with my olive and rosemary focaccia.
