Karen Cooper's delicious Beef Casserole

By contributor, Karen Cooper – thanks for sending this in to the Camps Australia Wide Community Cook Book.

I cook this in advance and freeze for our camp trips. It’s great with potatoes cooked in the fire, or mashed potatoes.


  • 1 kg beef rump steak cubed
  • 40 g (or 2 tablespoons) plain flour
  • Olive oil
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 500 ml beef stock
  • 2 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 chopped carrots


  1. Coat beef in flour and brown in small amounts.
  2. Add olive oil to pan and cook onions until soft. Add any remaining flour.
  3. Add tomato paste, mustard, stock and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Season and bring to boil then simmer for 1 hour either in oven or over the campfire.
  5. Add carrot and cook until beef and carrot are tender about 30 minutes.
