Beef Stew - Jamies Oliver's

This recipe is from 1 of Jamie Oliver’s cookbook. Need I say more, super easy, simple & fuss-free recipe for working mums. Ingredients list might look long but most items can easily be found in any-one’s kitchen, with d only exception of d parsnip. As I was not able to find parsnips this rd, I replace it with corn kennels (which gives a better color to d dish).

  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • ½ btl red wine
  • 285ml veg stock
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Handful Rosemary, leaves picked
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
