So it’s been a while since I’ve posted mostly due the the fact I have been extremely busy and it’s cold outside now which makes me extremely lazy (don’t know why). I decided to share a beef stew recipe which I made using osso bucco which is a pretty cheap cut of meat here for me ($5 for two osso bucco). When I made this, it tasted amazing! Even though I used a cheap kind of meat; after this whole process the meat was very soft and fell apart! So worth it! So give it a try and it’s cheap to make!
- 4-6 pieces beef osso bucco (or any cheap meat)
- plain flour, for dusting
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped roughly
- 1 carrot, chopped roughly
- 1 stick celery, chopped roughly
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 4 cups (1L) beef stock
- 1/3 cup (80ml) red wine (tastes better with it)
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
- Coat the meat in flour lightly and cook on a fry pan until the outside is golden. Set aside once completed.
- In a large pot, add all the chopped vegetables and cook for about 10mins until they start to soften and change colour (light brown)
- Add the beef stock and wine
- Return the cooked meat into the large pot and allow it to boil first initially for 5mins. Add the parsley too!
- Turn the heat down to low-medium and let it simmer for about 1hr to 1hr 30mins. Occasionally mix every half hour.
- Serve in a bowl and enjoy!
