    1. Heat the oven to 150°C (300°F, gas mark 2). Remove any excess fat and gristle from the beef and cut it into 4 cm (1½ in) cubes. Trim the bacon of fat and cut it into 1 cm (½ in) dice.
    2. Put the beef and bacon into a large flameproof casserole and add the carrots, onions, red peppers, canned tomatoes, celery, garlic, bay leaves, orange zest, rosemary, thyme, tomato purée, stock, and wine. Bring to the boil, cover the casserole, transfer it to the oven and cook for 2 hours.
    3. Stir in the anchovies, mushrooms, olives and parsley, reserving a little for garnish, then season with black pepper to taste (the anchovies will provide enough salt). Cover and cook for a further 1 hour. Check the seasoning, sprinkle with the reserved parsley and serve.
