900 g | 2 pounds braising steak cubed
15 small shallots, whole or 4 large shallots roughly chopped
3 carrots peeled and chopped
2 celery sticks finely chopped
4 garlic cloves peeled and thinly sliced
1 tbsp Sukrin Gold
2 bay leaves
1 cinnamon stick broken in two
¼ tsp ground allspice or 5 whole allspice berries
¼ tsp ground black pepper
⅛ tsp ground cloves or 5 whole cloves
1 strip orange peel optional
4 tbsp red wine vinegar
400 g (14oz) tinned chopped tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
250 ml (1 cup) rich beef stock
red wine stock cube
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
2 tbsp fresh parsley finely chopped, to serve
Preheat the oven to 160C (325F).
Brown the beef over high heat, in batches, until nicely coloured then set aside.
Deglaze the pan with beef stock, scraping any browned bits that have stuck to the pot.
Add the chopped shallots, celery, carrots, garlic, salt, pepper, spices, bay leaves, orange peel, cinnamon stick and sweetener. Cook over low heat for 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. If the pot gets too dry you can add a splash of stock.
Stir in the beef, tomato purée, chopped tomatoes, red wine vinegar, stock wine and bring to a rolling simmer.
Cover and cook in a preheated oven for 2 ½ hours until the sauce has thickened and meat is tender.
Discard the cinnamon stick, orange peel and bay leaves. Check the seasoning, adding salt and pepper to taste.
Garnish with the chopped parsley and serve with roast potatoes or mash and some crusty bread.
