SLOW-COOKED BEEF OSSOBUCO IN RED WINE

Serves 6
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 90 minutes

INGREDIENTS

6 large ossobuco pieces
Cooking oil
2 large onions
350g celery, diced
100gm mushroom (optional)
400g cubed carrots
6 garlic cloves
2tbsp tomato paste
500ml red wine
4-5 thyme sprigs
Salt and pepper
2-3 tbsp cornflour

METHOD

STEP 1

Season your meat generously with salt and pepper on both sides.

STEP 2
With the heat on high, add little oil to a large pot, and when the oil starts to smoke, gently place the meat pieces without overlapping them and allow to brown. If all the pieces can’t fit on the pot, cook them in batches.

STEP 3
When the first side is browned, turn the pieces and cook the second side. Remove from the pot and place onto a plate, then repeat the procedure with the second batch making sure the pot is hot.

STEP 4
When done with the meat, reduce the heat then add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic and about 3 tbsp. of oil. Cook the vegetables until they start to brown evenly, making sure to stir to avoid burning on one side.

STEP 5
Add the mushrooms(optional) and add the tomato paste and stir into the vegetables and if the vegetables start to stick, add little water to avoid it.

STEP 6
Return the meat to the pot and add the red wine to the pot, enough to cover the meat. The wine will deglaze the pot and dissolve all the browning stuck on the pot. Season the stew with salt and pepper then add the thyme sprigs.

STEP 7
Stir and bring to a boil then reduce the heat and allow to simmer while covered for about 60-90min or until the meat is tender and falls off the bone. Make sure to taste and adjust the seasoning.

STEP 8
Add more water to increase the amount of gravy while cooking, stirring occasionally.

STEP 9
To make the gravy thicker, dissolve the cornflour in a little cold water then add to the stew a little at a time stirring before adding more to see if the gravy thickens.

STEP 10
Taste and adjust the seasoning by adding little sugar if it’s tart to balance the flavours.
