  • Casserole Cooking Tips:

    Cut your ingredients, such as meat, potatoes and parsnips, into same-sized pieces to make sure that they will be cooked evenly. Add any ingredients that cook quickly, such as broad beans, towards the end of cooking.

    If you want to save time, you can use a flameproof, ovenproof casserole dish. This way you can use the same dish for cooking on the stovetop and in the oven.

    Avoid adding flour after cooking or the raw flour taste will remain. Instead, if you want to thicken the liquid, meat or vegetables should be dipped in flour before cooking.

    It is also important to have a tight-fitting lid on your casserole dish to make sure that the dish doesn't lose moisture during the long process of cooking.

    If your dish is too small, the liquid can overflow. If it's too large, the liquid can reduce too quickly and dry out the food.

    The long, slow and moist way of casserole cooking results in sensational flavor and texture, particularly when you use tougher cuts and meat and chicken on the bone. Here's a guide on the best cuts to use for your casserole dish.

    If you will use beef it is best to choose chuck steak, round steak, blade steak, topside, fresh silverside, skirt steak and boneless shin (gravy) beef.

    If you will use veal, choose shanks, osso bucco, veal shoulder and diced veal.

    If you’re going to use lamb, choose boneless shoulder, boneless forequarter, shanks, neck chops and diced lamb.

    If you will use chicken, take note that all chicken pieces are ideal for casseroles. For extra flavor, choose chicken pieces on the bone.

    If you will use pork, choose diced pork shoulder, forequarter chops and pork belly.
