Mise en place

  • Preheat the oven to 150° C (300° F - gas 2)

Method

  1. In a large oven proof dish, heat the olive oil and brown the meat for 5 minutes, remove and reserve. Do this in small batches or you will just end up with boiled meat.
  2. Add the shallots to the pan and sauté for 4 minutes to colour
  3. Return the beef to the dish and deglaze the pan with the wine and a wooden spatula
  4. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well
  5. So there is a really good seal, cover with tin-foil then replace the lid
  6. Place in the oven and slow-cook for 3½ hours

Serving suggestions

Serve hot with pasta or noodles and fresh green vegetables such as broccoli or green beans

Chef's notes

This dish could also be made with veal, chicken or even Lobster.

Unless you are a big fan of cinnamon and cloves you might want to reduce the allspice to 1 teaspoon.
