Ingredients

  • 4 Coles Australian No Added Hormones Beef Osso Bucco pieces
  • 2 tbs plain flour
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 1 brown onion, cut into wedges
  • 200g large brown flat mushrooms, thickly sliced
  • 200g button mushrooms, halved
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 cup (250ml) marsala wine or apple juice
  • 2 cups (500ml) beef stock
  • 4 thyme sprigs
  • 2 dried bay leaves
  • Steamed baby broccoli, to serve

Polenta

  • 3 cups (750ml) chicken stock
  • 1 cup (250ml) milk
  • 1 cup (170g) polenta (cornmeal)
  • ½ cup (40g) finely grated parmesan
  • ½ cup (125g) mascarpone

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 140°C. Place the beef and flour in a large bowl. Season. Toss the beef to coat.

STEP 2

Heat the oil in a large flameproof roasting pan over high heat. Add the beef and cook for 2 mins each side or until the beef is golden brown. Transfer the beef to a plate.

STEP 3

Add the onion, combined mushroom and garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until the onion softens. Return the beef to the pan with the wine or apple juice, stock, thyme and bay leaves. Bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.

STEP 4

Cover the pan loosely with foil. Roast, turning the beef occasionally, for 2 hours or until the beef is falling off the bone and the sauce thickens slightly. Set aside, covered, for 5 mins to rest.

STEP 5

Meanwhile, to make the polenta, combine the stock and milk in a large saucepan. Bring to the boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low. Gradually add the polenta in a thin, steady stream, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, for 10 mins or until the polenta thickens. Remove from heat. Add parmesan and mascarpone and stir to combine. Season.

STEP 6

Divide the polenta among serving bowls. Top with beef and spoon over the sauce. Serve with baby broccoli.
