Method for beef shin

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C/ 325°F/ Gas 3.
  2. Place the beef shins into a large bowl with the red wine, cover and leave to marinade in the fridge for 24 to 48 hours.
  3. Strain the shins through a sieve, reserving the wine, then pat the shins dry.
  4. Place the red wine into a saucepan and bring to the boil - skim off the scum that comes to the top.
  5. Heat a large casserole until medium hot, add the vegetable oil, onion, carrot, celery and ginger until browned.
  6. In a separate frying pan, sear the shins in a little oil until browned very well.
  7. When the shins have browned, drain them into a colander to get rid of any excess cooking fat.
  8. Place the shin on the top of the vegetables in the casserole, cover with the skimmed red wine and veal stock.
  9. Add the bay leaves, clove, white pepper corns, thyme and 3 tsp salt.
  10. Bring to a simmer, cover with a lid then place in the oven and braise for 2 ½ hours.
  11. When cooked, remove from the oven and leave the shins to cool down in the stock.
  12. When cool, remove the shins from the stock and pass the stock through a chinois into a saucepan and skim off any fat.
  13. Place back onto the heat and cook over a medium heat until reduced by ½ then pass through a fine sieve.
  14. To reheat the shin, warm it through in a covering of shin stock
