SLOW-COOKED BEEF WITH ORANGE GREMOLATA
Veal shin is the classic cut used in the Italian dish osso bucco, but cheaper beef shin is just as good. The bone marrow gives the stock its melting richness, so do try to get shin from the upper end with a larger bone. For best results, make the day before and gently reheat from room temperature.

Instructions
  1. Heat a heavy-bottomed casserole dish over high heat. Add a glug of oil and brown the beef shin in batches for about 5 minutes until well colored on all sides. Remove and set aside.
  2. Add a dash of oil to the casserole dish if necessary and sauté the carrot, celery, ginger, garlic, and shallots for 5 minutes until lightly colored. Add the tomato purée and cook for 1–2 minutes. Put the beef back into the pan, then pour in the orange juice and wine, stirring and scraping up all the bits at the bottom. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 2 minutes until the alcohol has burned off.
  3. Add the stock, season, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and simmer gently for 1 hour, then remove the lid and continue to cook for an additional 20–30 minutes until the beef is completely tender but not falling apart.
  4. Meanwhile, make the mashed sweet potatoes. Boil the sweet potatoes in salted water for 15 minutes until tender. Drain well and allow them to steam-dry for 5 minutes. Mash the sweet potatoes with a generous pinch of salt and pepper and a drizzle of olive oil until smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning as necessary.
  5. To make the gremolata, mix together the orange zest, parsley, and garlic, adding the olive oil, if using, until a thick spooning consistency is reached. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Serve the beef shins immediately, topped with the gremolata and with the mashed sweet potatoes alongside.
