Baker extraordinaire Nadine Ingram of Sydney's Flour and Stone cooks up a sweet storm for Easter, including the much loved bakery's greatest hit.

Fast autumn dinners

Autumn weather signals the arrival of soups, broths, roasts and more hearty meals.

Melbournes finest meet Worlds Best

Leading chefs descend on Melbourne in April for The World’s 50 Best Restaurants. We asked local hospitality folk who they’d abduct for the day and where they’d take them to show off their city. There may be coffee, there may be culture, but in the end it’s cocktails.

1980s recipes

Australia saw some bold moves in the ’80s, and we’re not just talking hairstyles. Greater cultural references started peppering the menus of our restaurants, and home-grown ingredients won a new appreciation. The dining scene was coming of age and a new band of pioneers led the charge.

All Star Yum Cha

What happens the morning after the World’s 50 Best Restaurants awards? We treat the chefs to a world-beating yum cha session, as Dani Valent discovers.

Coconut-braised wagyu beef shin with pickled cucumber salad


"I can't help but order the wagyu beef with pickled cucumber every time I visit Easy Tiger. Do you think the chefs would mind revealing the recipe?"
Lara Tsen, Yarraville, Vic

REQUEST A RECIPE
To request a recipe, write to Fare Exchange, Australian Gourmet Traveller, GPO Box 4088, Sydney, NSW 2001, or email fareexchange@bauer-media.com.au. Please include the restaurant's name and address or business card, as well as your name and address.

You'll need

1 large beef shin (about 1.5kg bone out; see note) 800 ml Thai soy sauce (such as Healthy Boy) 1 tbsp coriander seeds 2 tsp white peppercorns 1 tsp caster sugar 800 ml coconut cream To serve: steamed jasmine rice   Pickled cucumber salad 100 gm caster sugar 100 ml rice wine vinegar 2 Lebanese cucumbers, thinly sliced on a mandolin 3 red shallots, thinly sliced on a mandolin 1 lemongrass stalk (white part only), finely chopped ½ cup each (loosely packed) coriander, sawtooth coriander and Thai basil

Method

  • 01
  • Place beef in a non-reactive container that it fits in snugly. Add soy sauce to cover (you may need extra), add coriander seeds, peppercorns and sugar, cover and refrigerate to marinate, turning occasionally (8 hours to overnight).
  • 02
  • Preheat oven to 130C. Drain beef from marinade (discard marinade) and place in a small roasting dish or casserole. Add coconut cream to cover, cover with foil and roast until very tender (8-10 hours). Set aside to rest (15 mintues).
  • 03
  • For pickled cucumber salad, stir sugar, vinegar and 100ml water in a small saucepan over medium heat to dissolve sugar, set aside to cool, then transfer to a serving bowl. Just before serving, toss in remaining ingredients.
  • 04
  • Cut beef into large pieces, pour braising liquid over, top with pickled cucumber salad and serve hot with steamed rice.

Note At Easy Tiger this dish is often paired with son-in-law eggs. Allow eight hours to marinate the beef or begin this recipe a day ahead. At the restaurant, chef Jarrod Hudson uses Sher wagyu beef shin; if it's unavailable, substitute another wagyu shin or regular beef shin (you may need to order it ahead).
