We used a casserole to coat the meat in flour & salt

Sear but don’t over cook.

Place in a greased casserole dish

In the same pan, add veggies, sauce and flour. Bring to a boil, cook and stir for 2 minutes

Distribute over meat and put in oven

After 1 and half hours, remove from oven and sprinkle on the cheese. Return to oven to melt the cheese

Mmmmm melted cheeese!

Hopefully you’ll have as colorful a plate as we did. Server and enjoy!
