225 g (8 oz.) parsley root
150 g (5 oz.) carrots
4 cloves garlic
275 g (10 oz.) peeled tomato

8 prunes
3 liters (12 cups) dry red wine

2. Cut the vegetables into small strips.
3. Pierce the beef with a sharp knife at regular intervals and insert slivers of garlic into and around the meat.
4. Place the beef into a large non-reactive pan; cover with the wine. Add the chopped onion, thyme, bay leaf, rosemary, pepper and cubed celery to the pan. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours.


1. Heat the oil and place the beef (alone) into the pan with the oil. Brown the meat briskly and remove from the pan.
