Shoulder of beef with root vegetables

Super Delicious

Shoulder is a piece of meat that loves to cook for a long time. The same goes for root vegetables and therefore their combination is perfect. Beef shoulder with root vegetables is a delicious, filling and warming dish – so it is perfect for those winter days and especially Shabbat. This recipe uses beef stock, but I am aware that this is not readily available in every household and therefore you may use a powdered substitute of beef stock (don’t worry, I won’t tell!)...
