Here I am, back from a fantastic holiday around Europe. My my other half we have been to Lisbon, Madrid and Toulouse....and I have to say is so sad to be back. I had a great time and tried some fantastic food!!! I definitely have to go back to Lisbon and Madrid were I had no chance to see everything and to eat all delicatessen. Can you believe I had no chance to try Hot Choccolate and Churros in Madrid???? So I have to go back one day....
After this holiday now I'm ready to go back on track talking about my favourite subject: Food!!!
So today I want to give you this simple and delicious recipe...made of course with scotch beef!!

INGREDIENTS for 2 people:
2 sirloin steaks (about 400 gr)
100 gr of diced pancetta or bacon
2 carrots
1 onion
2 bay leaves and thyme
1/2 glass of red wine
1 cup of beef stock
20 gr. flour
20 gr. butter
extra virgin olive oil

Brown the bacon and set aside, remove all the grease. In a casserole brown the diced meat with some olive oil, add the bacon the diced vegetables, season and cook for a few minutes.
Pour in the red wine and beef stock, bring to the boil. Turn the heat down, cover and cook for about 30/40 mins.
When the stew is cooked, remove the meat and vegetables and set aside.
Prepare a roux mixing 20 gr. of melted butter with 20 gr. of flour.
Bring the stew liquid to the boil and add one spoon of the roux mixture. Mix well until the roux has broken up and the sauce has thickened.
Pout the meat and vegetables back into the pan with the sauce and serve hot.
