Method

 
Preheat the oven to 180 °C.
Coat both sides of the beef with flour.
Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan or casserole with a heavy base.
Gently fry the meat on both sides until lightly browned.
Put all the vegetables and herbs in an ovenproof casserole and put the meat on top.
Pour in the stock and stout.
Add nutmeg and seasoning.
Cover and cook in the oven for two hours, or until the meat is falling off the bone, the veggies are soft and the gravy is thick.
To make the dumplings, place the self-raising flour and salt in a mixing bowl.
Over a low heat, stir in the beaten egg with the milk.
Gradually add to the flour mixture to make a very thick batter.
Mix in the horseradish and parsley.
Drop large tablespoons of the batter into the casserole and cook uncovered for five minutes and then covered for another five minutes.
Serve boiled potatoes or fresh white bread to mop up all the juices.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
