Before you start
A pressure cooker will reduce the cooking time from 2½ h to 40 min.
- Prepare the vegetables: peel the carrots, potatoes and turnips, then cut the carrots, turnips, and celery stalks into large pieces (about 2-3 cm thick). Leave the potatoes whole or cut them in half if big. Finely chop the onion and garlic. Leave the meat whole.
- Heat the butter and oil in a pressure cooker or in a thick-base roasting pan over medium heat. Brown the meat thoroughly on each side until golden, 7-8 min total. Take the meat out and set aside.
- Add the onion and garlic to the pressure cooker or pan and sauté 3-4 min until translucent. Add the other vegetables and cook 2-3 min, then pour in the broth. Scrape the bottom of the pan using a wooden spoon, then pour in about 1 cm water. Add the tomato paste and put the meat back into the pan. Add salt and pepper.
- If you are using a pressure cooker, cover and close, and bring to high pressure (*Follow the manufacturer's directions to determine when high pressure has been reached). Cook for 40 min. If you are not using a pressure cooker, cover the pan, lower the heat, and simmer for about 2 h 30 min.
- Serve the meat and vegetables with the cooking juices.
This stew can be made a few days ahead and reheated over moderate heat.
