How to make the hearty beef and mushroom goulash

1 Preheat oven to 160ËšC.

2 Cut the stewing beef into large pieces and toss with flour.

3 In a large pot sear the beef with a drizzle of olive oil and set aside. In the same pan add a fresh drizzle of olive oil if necessary and sweat the onion.

4 Once the onion is soft add the red peppers and garlic. Allow to cook until the peppers have softened, about 5 minutes.

5 Add the tomato paste and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes. Finally add the paprika, crushed tomatoes and stock. Stir well and bring to a gentle simmer.

6 Put the lid on the pot and place in the oven for 1.5 hours or until the beef is tender.

7 Remove from the oven and add the mushrooms. Place on a low burner and reduce until the goulash thickens.

8 Finish the goulash with the cream and parsley. Serve over rice alongside freshly blanched peas.
