Tuscan Beef Casserole or Pie
Red Wine Infused Beef Pie Recipe
5 - 6
This Tuscan-inspired casserole is enjoyable as is, or served under a rich Parmesan pastry pie top. To make the pies, allow the beef mixture to cool well before putting it into a large pie dish or individual dishes. Particularly tasty on a winter’s night accompanied with your favourite red wine.

To Assemble Pie
Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while preparing the ingredients.
If wishing to brown the ingredients: Brown the meat, eggplant, capsicum and onion in a dash of oil in a hot frying-pan. This is best done in batches.
Into the pre-warmed slow cooker put the meat, eggplant, capsicum, onion, olives, sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, capers and oregano.
In a jug, mix together the tomato paste, flour, stock and wine to make a smooth mix.
Pour into the slow cooker and stir to mix all the ingredients evenly together and cover with the lid.
Cook on low for 6–8 hours or on high for 3–5 hours.
Serve with seasonal vegetables or make into pies using the rich Parmesan pastry (see following tab).
