- 1.5 kgs good stewing beef ,largecubes ,--chuck or blade shopping list
- 1 tbsp sweet Hungarian paprika shopping list

- 3 carrots .chopped shopping list

- 1 large potato ,finely chopped --will help in the thickening shopping list

How to make it
- Heat your oven to 180C
- Use a plastic zip lock bag and toss your cubed meat with the flour ,white pepper and paprika till well dusted .
- Place the floured meat in a heavy covered casserole dish --I use cast iron but thats up to you .
- Now add the tomato ,wine and all the vegetables ,stirring well to mix.
- If the mix doesn't come to the top of your chosen dish ,I then cover with a greased kitchen paper or baking sheet .
- Cook undisturbed for 1 and a half hours ,then test for seasonings and tenderness .I sometimes need to cook a bit longer if the meat needs it .
- I serve this on mashed potato or with Irish Colcanon --its delicious served with a creamy garlicky polenta too.
- I sometimes add fresh herbs to the cooking ,thyme especially .But I find the rich beef flavour needs little addition whenusing prime organic beef like we raise here .
- A good Napa Valley red would seem to be the final ingredient to your meal --remember the glass you used in the cooking ?--drink the rest and enjoy !!
