How to make it
- Using a dutch oven brown the meat in the olive oil.
- Add onions and let them cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionaly.
- Add garlic, carrot, celery and tomato paste. Stir to combine and add wine and stock or water.
- Put the lid on and cook over low heat for about 30 to 40 minutes. Take a pick every 15 minutes and stir.
- Taste the stew sauce and season to taste with pepper and salt. I usually don't add salt since I find the wine richness strong enough.
- Add the peas at this point and stir. The peas don't need to be thawed, just wash them in water.
- Put the lid back on and cook for another 15 minutes.
- It is ready to serve!
