DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the steaks into 5 x 7cm pieces.
  • Heat the butter and oil in a large casserole dish or pot.
  • Add the beef and fry until well browned. It is OK if the bottom of the pan gets brown and sticky, but dont let it burn.
  • Add the onions and cook until beginning to soften. You will see the brown sticky stuff at the bottom of the pan start to dissolve and come away.
  • Add the brandy.
  • Add the Stout beer, Vegemite (dissolved in a little water) sprigs of thyme and rosemary, carrots, eggplant, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring to the boil and cook very gently for about 3 hours, until the meat is very tender. Add the whole mushrooms for the last 30 minutes.
  • remove the sprigs of rosemary and thyme.
  • Mix the chopped basil and lemon rind together and sprinkle over the top.
  • Scatter over the olives and garnish with the basil sprig.
  • Serve with crusty bread or mashed potato.
