DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius.
  • In a saucepan over high heat boil the red wine for 15 minutes. Set aside.
  • Season the beef with salt and pepper.
  • In a casserole dish over high heat brown the beef in the olive oil.
  • Add red wine, stock and remaining ingredients.
  • Bring to a simmer, then cover and place in the oven.
  • Turn the heat down to 160 degrees celsius and cook for 2 hours.
  • Take beef and pork out of the pan and set aside.
  • Strain liquid into a bowl and cool slightly.
  • Discard herbs. Place carrot, celery and garlic in a blender and puree until smooth, adding enough of the reserved liquid to make a smooth sauce. Return to the pan with the beef.
  • Return the pan to the oven for a further 45 minutes or until the meat has fallen apart into the sauce.
