appr. 500gr rib steak with bone in, but if you use 1kg it's even better!
1 onion lef whole
1 garlic clove, unpeeled
8-10 black peppercorns
1 small bay leaf
1 tsp salt
a generous pinch chilli flakes
1 tomato (I used two cherry tomatoes that were lurking at the back of the fridge)
1kg carrot, peeled
500gr parsnip, peeled
small bunch of celery
If you can get them a small piece of savoy cabbage and a small kohl-rabi would give extra depth of flavour.
A big bunch of parsley, finely chopped for sprinkling
Put all the ingredients, except the parsley in a big pot. Add enough water to cover everything and about an inch more. Bring to the boil and simmer on a low heat for 2-3 hours.
