Melt in your mouth beef shin

One of my favourite ways of cooking is slow cooking – It’s yummy, clean, cheap and nutrient rich. Chuck all the ingredients in one pot and let simmer away for hours – how easy is that!

I experimented today and came up with this delicious recipe. The meat was tender, succulent and the sauce was rich and deep! I hope you like it as much as I did.

Slow cooked beef shin 

Ingredients –

  • 600g-ish of good quality beef shins
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 200g Portobello mushrooms
  • 2 carrot, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large leak, chopped
  • 1 brown onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 6 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 teaspoons cinnamon powder or 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1 can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 2.5 cups beef or chicken stock
  • Salt and cracked black pepper

Method-

  1. Preheat the oven to 170degrees
  2. Heat the oil in an oven proof dish on the stove and lightly brown the meat on both sides.
  3. Next add all the remaining ingredients to the pot and stir through.
  4. Cover the top of the pot tightly with a few sheets of al-foil.
  5. Place in the pre-heated oven for a minimum of 4 hours or until nice and tender!
  6. Remove from oven and serve with a creamy sweet potato mash.
