Beef Stew/Casserole

This is a totally wholesome meal with all the nutrients and flavor, best thing is its suitable and great for babies.
800gm of diced beef
2 big onions
3 large potatoes
3 carrots
1 brocolli
1 can of tomato sauce/puree
2 tbsp of plain flour
Water to stew
Oregano to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
Chicken granules to taste
Heat oil in the wok and saute the diced beef for a minute or two before adding in the flour. Make sure the beef has been well coated before adding in the onions, carrots, potatoes, brocolli, give it a good toss and then add in the can of tomato puree. Add water sufficient to cover all ingredients and cover the wok and leave to stew till tender. Normally takes anything within 30-40 minutes. If you desire your veges to be less mushy, then reduce cooking time and vice versa. Add the seasonings half way through cooking and adjust to taste when the dish is almost ready. This can be made the casserole way, simply put the sauteed beef and all the other ingredients including the seasoning into a large casserole, sufficient water to cover all ingredients as well and put into a 180C oven to bake for 1-1.5 hour.Love this on its own or served with rice/bread/pasta even.
