Has anyone else been enjoying watching Antonio Carluccio and Gennaro Contaldo’s Two Greedy Italians on BBC? We watch it just getting hungrier by the minute, and when they made this braised beef last Thursday I thought I had to try it.
I’ve got a couple of learning points from my dinner. First is that your beef should be a bit fatty, mine had barely any fat running through it so was a little dry without the sauce. My sauce was also quite thin, so what I would do next time is take out the beef and reduce it on the hob before serving. Finally, we both thought this dish would taste lovely with some mushrooms added.
If you’re making the greedy Italians’ beef, let me know how it turns out!
