  • olive oil

  • Season beef with salt and pepper.

  • Add 2 tablespoon of olive oil to a dutch oven over medium hight heat. Put quinoa flour in a small bowl and toss each piece of beef in the flour. Shake off the excess each time and throw away any leftover flour.
  • Brown beef on each side. You will need to do this in two batches so you don't overcrowd the pan.
  • Transfer the browned beef to a plate and set aside.
  • Add 2 tablespoon oil and saute garlic for 2 minutes.
  • Add onions and cook for another few minutes.
  • Add the tomato paste and cook for a few minutes.

  • Bring to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer with the lid on for about an hour, stirring occasionally.
  • Add carrots and potatoes and cook for another 30-45 minutes or until everything is tender.
  • Add frozen peas and cook for a few more minutes.
  • Garnish with fresh rosemary or parsley.
  • Season to taste with fresh pepper and salt.
