Beef Involtini

Apparently it is the last day of winter here and it seems almost colder than it was last month but you're not going to hear me complain. Cold is good because it gives you the time to take the time and cook all those slower meals just like the dish I've cooked here - beef involtini.

Involtini is the name given to any rolled and stuffed dish - just like these eggplant involtini I made ages ago.

In this case I'm using beef - something robust that will withstand the slow cooking, so a bbq or round steak is ideal - the meat is first lined with prosciutto and topped with a simple stuffing made from slightly stale bread and parsley. They are then rolled and tied, before being slowly cooked in a rich tomato based sauce.

Milanese inspired Osso Buco

Osso Buco is a favoured winter dish in our house and up until recently there were two distinctively different types of meat you would use - the larger beef osso buco and the rather tiny veal osso buco. While the veal seems to be popular, I've always found it just a little too flavourless and confusingly, it looked nothing like the veal osso buco I'd see in the Italian markets.

However, a third option has arrived via my latest farmers' market find - rose veal.
