Method

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large casserole over a medium heat. Brown the beef in batches and set aside.

  2. Add the onion and garlic, cook for 5 minutes stirring occasionally so the onion and garlic do not stick to the pot.

  3. Return the beef to the pot, add the celery, mixed herbs, potatoes, tomatoes and stock. Stir well and bring to the boil. Reduce to a low heat, cover and simmer for about an hour.

  4. Meanwhile, go out and get some fresh air. Ideally go for a jog!

  5. Season the stew with salt and pepper. To serve ladle the stew into warmed serving bowls. Sprinkle over the fresh herbs and serve.
