Take out a large skillet/Open the navigation pane, and/wait add parsley, flour, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt/imagine your feathered friends tracking you down. 1 teaspoon pepper, and a few pieces of beef/imagine them off the radar ready at your beck and call. Let them simmer over medium heart/let this thought stick with you. Save the leftover mixture./Monitor your heart rate. Keep beef in the dutch oven and whisk in potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, and onions/Say a nice hello to your nervous demons.. Cook for about three minutes/You’re set to go. Now put in mustard, tomato paste, and the remaining flour mixture./Talk to yourself and then to the co-pilot Combine broth and bay leaf and let them boil./Peer at the sky with suspicion. Simmer them for at least 1 hour until beef becomes tender./But embrace the canopy. Now remove bay leaf./It’s time to surrender.
