- 1 3/4 lb. lean beef cut into 3X3 cm cubes
- 3 1/2 oz. canned peeled tomatoes
- 12 sage leaves
- 2 carrots
- 6 medium potatoes
- 6 2/3 tbsp. extra-vergine olive oil
Put the meat, tomatoes, sage leaves, carrot cut into 4 lengthwise slices and 1 2/3 cups water in a pot.
Add salt, bring to a boil and cook over moderate heat for 30 minutes. Peel the potatoes, cut them in pieces and add them to the pot.
