Home Cooked Comfort Food & Award Winning Wine!
Here at Premier Estates Wine, the team have all been commenting on the chilly mornings and darker evenings. They've been discussing their slow cooker comfort food recipes and how they love to cook with wine to add something special to the flavours of a satisfying meal. We thought it would be nice to share them with our customers, so here goes:
To make this dish you need:
3 Shallots 3 Garlic cloves 1 Knob of butter 1.25 cup of Risotto Rice
3 cups of chicken stock 1 Block of Parmesan cheese
Beef and Shiraz Red Wine Hotpot
3 tbsp flour 3 medium onions 500g carrots 4 garlic cloves
1 medium glass of Premier Estates Shiraz red wine 850ml beef stock
3 bay leaves 3 thyme sprigs serve with jacket spuds or mash
Heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large frying pan. Add the beef in a bowl, sprinkle with the flour and seasoning, then mix until well coated. Fry in batches, add more oil if required, until all is well browned. Pop in a casserole dish when fried.
Add another tbsp of oil to the pan and add in the onions and carrots, sliced. Cover and cook on a low heat for 10-12 mins until nicely soft, then remove the cover and cook until it's starting to brown. Add the garlic, crushed and cook for another minute. Pour in the wine and stir, letting it boil up for a minute, then pour over the meat. Add stock, bay leaves and thyme then cover and gently simmer for 2½ hrs until the beef is tender.
