20111012 Italian-style Beef Stew
(SOURCE: GoodFood magazine 101 Meals for Two)
I didn't feel like cooking but really wanted a proper home cooked meal, after surviving on takeaway and microwaved dinner for the last few days. I needed something that is easy to prepare and quick to cook. I flipped through a few cook books and finally found this one. I didn't have high hopes for this but was pleasantly surprised. The slightly bruised rosemary and thinly sliced garlic gave this dish such fragrant - what little bit of herb/spice can do! It was the perfect dinner for a lazy Wednesday evening.
1 onion, sliced
2 garlic clove, sliced
2 tbsp olive oil
250g pack beef stir-fry strips
1 yellow pepper, seeded and thinly sliced
400g can chopped tomatoes
dried rosemary, slightly crushed
1. In a large saucepan,soften the onion and garlic until turning golden.
2. Tip in the beef strips, pepper, tomatoes and rosemary, then bring to the boil. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until the meat is cooked through, adding some boiling water if needed.
