To peel a tomato cut a small cross at the base and then drop into a bowl of boiling water. Leave for 10-15 seconds until the skins begin to loosen. Remove with a draining spoon and plunge into cold water before peeling off the skin.

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a flame proof casserole. Add the beef and stir well until browned all over. Remove with a draining spoon and keep warm.
  2. Add the onions and cook gently for about 5 mins until golden brown. Add the garlic and cook for a minute. Stir in the flour and cook for a minute. Pour in the red wine and coffee and bring to the boil, stirring. Add the peppers and beef, cover and simmer gently for 45 mins.
  3. Add the tomatoes and drained beans. Cover and cook for a further 15 mins or until the beef is tender.
