Khas utk Lia ,recipe Slow Cooker Osso Bucco (my style - asianised ;-))
4 beef shins (about 1.2 kg)
1/2 cup plain flour
salt n pepper to taste
4 tbsp olive oil
2 carrots, diced quite thick
1 stick celery (optional klu suka rasanya)
1/2 large brown onion, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 x 400g can whole peeled tomato
1 cube beef stock
3 dried bay leaves
2 cardamom pods
1/2 tsp dried thyme
2 tbsp bawang goreng (ready made)
-Preheat frying pan with 2 tbsp olive oil on medium heat. Mix plain flour and salt and pepper on a plate. Dip the beef shins into the flour mixture, then coat the whole meat with flour, shake off excess tepung. Pan fry the beef shins 2 at a time until brown, then set aside.
-In the same frying pan (no need to basuh dulu), tambah another 2 tbsp of olive oil and then add onions, garlic, diced carrot and diced celery and fry until onions wilted.
-Transfer the half cooked meat and the onion mixture into a slow cooker. Then add the rest of the ingredients into the slow cooker
-Set the slow cooker on high and cook for 5 hrs. Then rasa the osso bucco after that and kalau daging masih melekat to the bone, continue cooking on low for another hour.
-Boleh dihidang dgn mashed potatoes or risotto.
