Preparation : 25 mins

Coocking time : 2 hours

  • 1.5 kg of beef (bourguignon type)
  • 1 bone marrow
  • 20 g butter
  • 3 tablespoons of oil (olive or sunflower)
  • 100 g flour
  • 1 onion
  • 3-4 carrots

  • 50 cl Guinness

  • 3 sprigs of parsley
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

Melt butter with oil over medium/high heat in sauté pan.

Cut your beef into large cubes and brown them in the sauté pan. While it is cooking, salt and sprinkle the meat with flour.

Brown the bone marrow as well.

Once your beef pieces are well browned, set them aside in a bowl.

Add the chopped onion to the sauté pan.

Peel the carrots, cut them into sections and add a little salt.

Cook for 2-3 minutes then glaze with Guinness beer. Bring to the boil. Scrape the bottom of the pan with a spatula to catch the juices from the beef.

Add the spices, bay leaf, 2 sprigs of parsley and one third of the beef stock.

Add the pieces of meat and the leek cut into sections.

Season with salt and pepper.

Cook, covered, for 11/2 to 2 hours, regularly adding broth when the broth in the pan thickens. (You can also bake at 160 degrees).

Meanwhile, cook your peas in salted water (about 12 minutes) and set aside.

Just before serving, adjust the seasoning and add the peas to yours beef stir-fry.

Serve with chopped parsley and steamed potatoes.
