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.

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.
