Method

 
Heat a pot on the stove and add the olive oil.

Drain the little onions from the pickling juice and add to the pot.

Add the bay leaves and allow the onions to brown in the oil.

Add the sugar as it will help with the caramelizing process.

Add the meat and brown together with the onions.

Add the stock, place the lid on the pot and cook the meat for 1 hour or until it is soft.

Clean and add the mushrooms and allow to cook through.

Open the lid and let the juices of your stew reduce.

Taste for salt and pepper and lastly before serving add the cream and heat through.

Serve with rice, mash or better yet with a thick slice of warm bread to suck up all the tangy, creamy 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.
