Beef burger casserole

Well, I love a bargain - and yesterday it was bargains galore in the supermarket.  If you get there at the right time things which are out of date that day get their second discount... and this particular supermarket doesn't remove the 2 for £4 etc calculation - so you get even more money off - let me explain - 2 lots of 4 burgers at 2 for £4 reduced to £1.25 per pack.  They usually sell for £2.59 so you also get £1.18 extra back - which brings the pack price down to 66p ... chortle.  so, one pack for tea, one pack for the freezer - job's a goodun.  However, I did not fancy burger (per se) for tea, so chucked a load of stuff in a pan and called it casserole.  Most of the other stuff were fantastic bargains too, so it was a casserole dictated by bargains, rather than anything else.  Add the side of sweetcorn cost 2p using the same mechanism.

Served 5:  To cook:  45minutes cos I just bunged it in and left it.  Approx price per portion:  28p

1 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 chopped onion
4 Aberdeen angus burgers
1 pack runner beans, sliced
7 baby courgettes, chopped
1 tin tomatoes
1 pint chicken stock

Steamed rice


Sautee onion in olive oil, when a bit soft add chopped up burgers and garlic.  Add veg (whatever you are using), stock and tomatoes - lid on, simmer or stick in medium oven for a while.  I was watching Corrie so it stayed in for half an hour (Tyrone should not be taking Kirsty back IMHO).  Meanwhile I had cooked rice and sweetcorn.  Yum.  Victim looked at it quizzically but did not complain - and the plate was cleared.
