Foodie Friday - Beef Stew

Cooking is a small pleasure of mine because besides loving to eat, I cook to destress. Last week was a beef week for me as I was craving for red meat. Besides making 'homemade' patties, I cooked beef stew for the family. Here's the recipe to share (adapted from Jamie Oliver's recipe)

:: The Gathering List
- Butter (I used about a quarter of the slab) 
- 1 onion, peeled and chopped
- A dash of dried rosemary (I used McCormicks)
- 500g stewing beef, cut into 5cm pieces
- Worcester Sauce
- Ground black pepper (I used McCormicks)
- All purpose flour + Cornflour
- 2 - 3 carrots, peeled and cut into 4 to 5cm blocks
- 3 stalks of celery (sliced)
- 3 medium potatoes, cut into quarters 
- 1 packet of beef stock (I used Campbell, 500gm) 
- 1 quarter can of diced tomato cubes
- Optional: Tendons

:: The cookout
- Marinate the beef in advance with salt, ground black pepper and Worcester Sauce
- Melt the butter over a low flame and add on the chopped onions then celery, carrots and potatoes. Cook over low heat for about 5 mins
- At the same time, preheat your oven (20 mins on 160 degrees) 
- Coat the beef cubes with the flour mix and add to the casserole dish with all the vegetables. 
- Add tendons (if you have), turn up the flame to medium
- Add the diced tomato cubes and toss it with the rest for a while 
- Add the packet of beef stock
- Bring it to a slow boil. Add rosemary 
- Transfer the casserole dish to the oven. I set it at 170 degrees for 2 hours. 
- Serve hot with bread, mash potatoes or rice.
