Beef and Guiness Casserole   hero

Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a pan over a medium heat and fry the meat until it has browned. Remove from the pan and put into a casserole dish.

Heat the remaining oil and sauté the onion over a low heat until golden. Mix in the flour and ginger, cook for 1-2 minutes, then gradually stir in the ale, stock and tomatoes and cook until thickened. Add the bouquet garni, pepper and orange rind and pour into the casserole.

Cook in a preheated oven Gas mark 3/160°C/Fan140°C for 1½ hours.

Remove the bouquet garni, stir in the orange juice then serve.
