The Star Latest Christchurch news at www.star.kiwi Thursday September 6 2018 35 GREAT food BROUGHT TO YOU BY... Your fresh food people SLOW BRAISED BEEF CHEEK RAGU WITH PARPADELLE Ingredients 1.3-5kg beef cheeks salt and pepper 1 large onion, diced 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup diced carrot 1 cup red wine 2 cups beef stock 800gm crushed tomatoes 100-130gm tomato paste 3 bay leaves 1-2 teaspoons sugar, to taste parpadelle (depending on how many people you are serving) parmesan, finely grated to serve 1/2 cup parsley, chopped Instructions Cut any large bits of fat off the beef cheeks. Pat dry with a paper towel and season generously with salt and pepper. Heat a large, heavy based pot over high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil. Add the beef cheeks (one by one if they don’t all fit on the bottom) and sear on each side to brown all the edges (a few minutes per side). Remove and set aside. In the same pot, turn down the heat to low and add the onion and garlic. Sautee for 5min, stirring to avoid it catching on the bottom. Add the diced carrot and cook gently for 10min until just softened. Add a splash of the red wine and cook for a couple of minutes. Add the rest of the red wine, the beef stock, crushed tomatoes, tomato paste and bay leaves and stir to combine. Add the seared beef back into the sauce. Bring back to a simmer, then cover and turn to a very low heat and keep at a low simmer for three hours. Remove the lid and At simmer for a further 30min or until the beef cheeks are almost falling apart. Remove the beef from the pot and set aside. Bring the sauce to a rapid simmer for a further 20min to thicken the sauce. Taste and adjust sugar for seasoning (this may depend on what brand of canned tomatoes you use as some have more sugar than others) Meanwhile, use two forks to shred the beef into bite-size pieces. Return to the sauce and stir to combine. At this point, you can either serve the sauce, refrigerate until the next day for even better flavour, or freeze half for future use. Boil the pasta according to packet instructions. Meanwhile, heat the sauce in a large frypan with a splash of the pasta water to loosen if it has been refrigerated or frozen. Add the cooked pasta to the sauce and toss with tongs and a serving spoon to thoroughly coat the pasta in the ragu sauce. Serve with grated parmesan and finely chopped parsley. Serve with fresh ciabatta and oven roasted broccollini. GRILLED CALIFORNIA AVOCADO AND CHICKEN Ingredients ¾ cup balsamic vinegar ¼ cup honey 3 cloves garlic, minced 2 tablespoons olive oil 2 teaspoons italian seasoning ½ teaspoon salt ¼ teaspoon pepper 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts 4 slices mozzarella cheese 2 avocados, diced 3 tomatoes, diced ¼ cup fresh chopped basil salt and pepper balsamic vinegar for drizzling Instructions In a medium sized bowl whisk the balsamic vinegar, honey, garlic, olive oil, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Add the chicken breasts and coat. Marinate for 30min. Meanwhile, in a small bowl add the avocado, tomato, basil and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside. Heat the grill to medium high heat. Grill the chicken on each side about 6min or until cooked throughout and no longer pink. Top with mozzarella cheese and avocado, tomato basil mixture. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
