garlic dry on paper towels.

garlic over medium-high heat. Add meat in 2 batches, searing meat on all
sides until deep brown. Return all meat to pot. Pour in reserved marinade
and beef boullion. Add bouquet garni. Bring to a boil. Boil gently for 10
minutes. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 350?F. Layer carrots, onions, turnips and mushrooms atop
meat mixture in casserole. Cover and bake at 350?F for 1 1/2 hours until
meat and vegetables are tender. Remove bouquet garni. Stir in frozen peas.
Season to taste with salt and pepper. Cover and bake 4-5 minutes until peas
are cooked. Spoon stew and cooking juices into individual serving bowls.
