  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup Beef Stock

  • 1 teaspoon dried marjoram

Method

  1. Preheat oven to moderate (350°F.).

  2. Quickly brown the meat in the oil and transfer the meat to a casserole. Add the stock and tomato paste to the casserole. Trim off and discard the ends of the lemon.
