Ingredients

  • 4 thick generous slices beef shin, about 700g/1lb 9oz
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 2 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 3 medium onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 tsp caster sugar
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 700ml beef stock (made with 2 cubes)
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 large flat mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • chopped parsley, to serve

Method

  • STEP 1

    Dust the beef in flour, then set aside. Heat the oil in a large pan. Add the onions and fry for 5 mins. Add the sugar and cook for 5-10 mins, stirring frequently, until the onions are caramelised. Stir in the garlic for the final few mins.

  • STEP 2

    Pour in the stock and stir in the Worcestershire sauce. Add the beef and mushrooms, then season, adding plenty of black pepper. Cover and cook gently for 2 hrs until the meat is tender. Can be chilled for up to 3 days. To freeze, cool and store in freezer bags. Thaw and reheat in a pan. Serve scattered with parsley.
