DIRECTIONS

  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large saucepan; add the onions and carrots and cook over a medium heat for about 8 minutes, until softened and lightly browned.
  • Remove the vegetables with a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate or dish and reserve.
  • Add another 1 tablespoon of oil to the pan and add the beef cubes.
  • Increase the heat and cook until the meat is browned all over.
  • If necessary, fry the meat in batches to ensure it browns evenly; season to taste.
  • Return the vegetables to the pan and stir in the flour and the remaining oil.
  • Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.
  • Add the beef stock, coffee, oregano and bay leaf.
  • Bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, until thickened; reduce the heat to very low.
  • Cover the pan and allow the stew to simmer very gently for at least 1 or 1½ hours until the beef is tender.
  • Add the peas and simmer for a further 5-10 minutes.
  • Discard the bay leaf; taste and adjust seasoning as desired.
  • Serve hot with mashed potatoes.
