Winter beef casserole

Ramona's Cuisine -


* mixed lentils can be found in pack that contains a blend of lentils used for soups or winter stews. They normally contain pearl barley, red split lentils, green and yellow split peas, brown rice, haricot beans, marrowfat peas. These make such a difference to this dish!
** Moroccan spices can be replaced with any spices that you like most or just happen to have. 2-3 springs of thyme and 2 bay leaves are also a fab option.
*** Whenever I cook meat, I never add any oils but feel free to if you wish to.
