Souligne beef casserole

Had a good time in the UK at Christmas, but came back with bronchitis. Am feeling fine now, so thought it was time I started to post on here again. Am trying to use up the food in the freezers, so found some beef and decided to make a casserole. It's bitingly cold here today, so just right for a nice tasty casserole. Having looked at lots of recipes, nothing really inspired me, so I decided to make my own recipe.  It's for 2 very generous portions and is a meal in itself. Maybe some nice crusty bread to mop up the sauce?

Add chopped eeks and carrots and cook gently for 2 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer gently until beef is cooked - the time depends on the cut of beef you're using. I used beef shin and it took 11/2 hours. That'
