1 kg chuck or blade steak - cut into 2cm cubes
1tsp brown sugar
1 tabsp flour

Stir through meat and allow to marinate 1 hr - this stage could be skipped if short of time, however the dish is so full of flavour allowing to marinate.
Add meat red wine and water to TMX - cook 50 mins, 100°, speed 1  :-:.
Add sliced mushrooms 15-20 mins before end cooking.
Add blended cornflour and cook a further 5 -7 mins, 100°, speed 1  :-:.

I cooked potatoes in steamer basket while carrots and broccoli cooked in the varoma.

Enjoy.

Tips/Hints: - As shown I served this with mash, steamed carrots and broccoli.  However the recipe adapted from
Best Recipes from the Weekly has a french bread stick cut into 2.5 cm slices spread with a combined mixture of 2 tsp french mustard and 15g butter. After cooking meat mixture in TMX, place slices on top casserole and push down gently to soak up some of the sauce.  Bake uncovered 20 mins moderate oven or until bread is browned.

Modifications from forum members
Hestonfan Used balsamic instead of malt vinegar and added 25g truffle oil.
Quirkycooking Added carrot and served it over spaghetti
Judydawn used chuck steak and cooked it for longer.
Many members used it for a pie filling.
Jabejak Put a little passata in and added capsicum, zucchini, carrot and pumpkin and served over rice.
Snoozie Added frozen vegetable soup.
Cornish Cream cut rounds from day old bread, spread them with Dijon  mustard and put them on top of the casserole as it was reheating in the oven.
hopefulcook used sweet potato and potato. The sweet ppotato disintegrated and thickened the casserole.
Maddy added 3 rashers of bacon, cracked pepper and served it on a bed of mashed potato.

Sounds very flavoursome johnro.  It reminds me of one I used to do one called a Belgium Beef casserole from New Idea that did the same thing with the french stick and mustard but it used beer instead of wine and slightly different ingredients.

This does sound lovely. I've printed it off and will try it, we're supposed to get some cool weather later this week. Summer hasn't arrived and I'm tired of the hot weather.(today is only the 2nd day!)
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

We had this last night and found it lovely. The only change I made was to reduce the vegie stock concentrate a bit. I made a half quantity and still have enough left for a pie. It is ever so tasty and the instructions are perfect. Thanks you. :-* :-*

This was lovely! Used balsamic vinegar instead of malt vinegar and added 25 g of truffle EVO and it was very well received!
Thank you  :-*

I made this one this week too, and we loved it!  I forgot to add the mushrooms, and when the timer went off at 50mins I tasted it and thought, "this would be nice with mushrooms in it...", then realized it was SUPPOSED to!  So I added sliced mushrooms and sliced carrots (because I didn't feel like doing extra veges), cooked it another 10 mins, and served it over spelt spaghetti - it was delicious!!! Beef was very tender.  Thanks Johnro!!  ;D
