For the penultimate meal of 2007 Steve prepared this exquisite dish of beef and vegetables with Provençal herbs and seasonings. The original recipe comes from Hugh Fearnley-Whittenstall's 'Meat' cookbook and was altered slightly at the suggestion of a good friend who has retired to the South of France.
The recipe, in its adapted form, can be found here. The result was one of the best beef stews I have ever tasted! Chapeau, Steve!
