  • About

This delicious, juicy and soft pot-roasted beef is an ancient dish which goes back several centuries in Italian peasant cookery. Originally the pot used to make it in would have been made of glazed terracotta with a tight-fitting lid. In those days no other flavouring ingredients were added; the dish was simply the best quality stewing beef cooked in plenty of robust red wine.
