    If you haven't found one...
    I just use diced beef, onion, carrots, swede and then add a tin of tomatoes and some beef stock and cook slowly (often in slow cooker).
    Serve with whatever veg you like.
    I add the tinned toms as I find it can get too runny just made with stock, but you could syn some cornflour or gravy granules to thicken if you like.

    Another good one is if you google Jamie Oliver's Steak and Ale stew...just use Frylight instead of the gallons of olive oil that he loves to use, and I think even with the flour and the ale, it works out about 4 syns per serving xx

    I do a variation of one from the extra easy cook book... brown stewing steak in a pan then add to a casserole dish... add frozen casserole veg (or a fresh pack when in season) diced potato (if on EE) 2 beef OXO cubes, bay leaf, 2 tsps dried mixed herbs, 1/2 pint of water, salt, pepper and mix. I cook for around 2 hours in a medium hot oven. It's also nice with a teaspoon of bovril added and some passata to thicken it up. Nice and easy!

    I know it's not technically a beef casserole but you might like to try Asda's Extra Special Beef Bourgignon. It takes 4 minutes in the microwave and I find there is enough for 2 servings. It is totally free on original and I usually add some butternut squash to thicken and any free veg that I have. The beef is lovely and if you really want something different try adding mild curry powder and garlic granules.
