Step 1

Season flour with a little salt and pepper and toss the beef in. Shake off any excess flour.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large pan to medium heat. Add the diced beef and sear all until nice golden brown colour. It’s important to do this in stages so as not to overcrowd the pan. You want really strong colour on the meat at this point. Not necessarily cooked meat.

Step 3

Once the meat is seared, remove from the pan.

Step 4

Start to fry the Onions, Garlic, Leek, Rosemary and Thyme in a little more oil over a high heat.

Step 5

Once coloured (approx. ten minutes) add in the Red Wine and allow to boil away.

Step 6

Once the wine has reduced, add in the Carrots, Turnips, Savoy Cabbage, Beed Stock and the pre seared meat.

Step 7

Cook over a medium heat for 2 hours, adding in extra water if it begins to dry up.

Step 8

Once the meat has become tender to the touch and the vegetables are cooked, add in the potatoes.

Step 9

Top up again with water and bring back up to a high heat for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked through.

Step 10

Season to taste with salt and black pepper and stir through the parsley.

Step 11

Serve with additional mashed champ or in its own for a perfect warming evenings dinner.
