  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large, heavy bottomed sauce pan.
  4. Add the beef and cook over medium high heat to brown, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes.  Remove the meat from the pan.
  5. Add the other tablespoon of oil to the pan, then add the garlic, onion, celery and radishes.
  6. Saute, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until softened and fragrant.
  7. Add the Worcestershire sauce and whisky to the pan and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  8. Add the cooked beef back to the pan, along with the water, dijon mustard, parsley, and thyme – then stir well.  Cover and simmer for 1 hour over low heat.
  9. Remove the cover and whisk in the xanthan gum.
