    Jan 26/17 This recipe is fantastic. I used about 3 lbs. of sirloin roast which I cut up (500 g is just a little over a lb.) the double the rest of the ingredients (400 g mushroom is 14 oz, 800 gr plum tomatoes is 28 oz). I heated the oven to 400 degrees but turned it down to 300 and allowed the recipe to simmer for about 6 hours. I did stir once in a while. Served over mashed potatoes. Will be making again.

    Unless you are Jamie Oliver, this is NOT your recipe!! This recipe was created by chef Jamie Oliver of England. How did I find this, I was doing a search as I love this recipe so very much and I found it here (don't know why not on his site) but to show this as your own is a crime! Please make credit due where credit should be, otherwise you might have guilt stacking up on your conscience.
