  •  Red winen braised beef shortrib potjie with mushrooms and gremolata

In the Vineyard

This classic combination of beef, red wine and mushrooms reminds of a French-style bourguignon, but without the fuss. Hearty and robust winter fare at its best.


Ingredients (serves 6)

 

45 ml olive oil

1,5 kg beef shortrib

salt & pepper

2 onions, chopped

4 sprigs rosemary, woody stalks removed

4-6 cloves garlic, finely chopped/grated

15 ml cake flour

30 ml tomato paste

 

375 ml dry red wine (Merlot will work beautifully)

250 ml beef stock

2-3 large carrots, sliced

4 large potatoes, quartered

400 g portabellini or brown mushrooms

a handful fresh parsley, finely chopped

zest of a small lemon, finely grated salt & pepper

Method
  • In a large cast iron potjie over a fire (or in a large heavy based pot on stove top), heat the oil (high heat) and brown the beef chunks on both sides, seasoning with salt & pepper. Remove the meat from the pot and set aside. Now add the onions and rosemary, stirring until it starts to soften. Add the garlic and fry for another minute. Add the flour and tomato paste and fry for a minute, stirring. Add the red wine and stock and stir to loosen any sticky bits on the bottom. Place the browned meat back into the pot and bring to a simmer. Adjust the heat to low, place a lid on and braise for an hour. Add the carrots and potatoes, replace the lid and cook for another hour. Add the mushrooms and continue to cook until the meat is very tender. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Remove from the heat and leave to stand for a while before serving. Serve hot with cooked rice or pap or polenta, sprinkled with gremolata. To make the gremolata: mix the chopped parsley and grated lemon rind together and season with salt & pepper
