You'll need

60 ml (¼ cup) olive oil 1 beef shin (about 2.2kg), split (see note) 5 garlic cloves, peeled 1 cup (about 1 bunch) oregano 2 thyme sprigs 250 ml dry white wine 1 litre (4 cups) veal stock or brown chicken stock   Romesco 1 red capsicum 3 ripe Roma tomatoes, halved lengthways ½ Spanish onion 1 garlic clove ¼ long red chilli, seeds removed 50 ml olive oil 50 gm (1/3 cup) blanched almonds 25 gm toasted sourdough (1 slice), crustless 2½ tsp sherry vinegar ¼ tsp smoked paprika   Kohlrabi salad 1 kohlrabi (about 500gm), peeled, cut into julienne and soaked in iced water for 10 minutes to crisp 3 spring onions, thinly sliced 2 tbsp thinly sliced mint 2 tbsp thinly sliced flat-leaf parsley Juice of 1 lemon 50 ml olive oil

Method

  • 01
  • For romesco, preheat oven to 180C. Roast capsicum in an oven dish, turning occasionally, until charred and softened (40-50 minutes). Cool for 10 minutes, then discard seeds, peel, tear flesh into large strips and transfer to a roasting pan lined with baking paper along with tomatoes, onion, garlic and chilli. Drizzle with 1 tbsp olive oil, season to taste and roast until onion is soft and juices have reduced (1¼-1½ hours). Cool for 5 minutes, then peel tomatoes and onion. Meanwhile, roast almonds on an oven tray until golden (6-8 minutes). Transfer to a food processor along with capsicum mixture, toasted bread, vinegar, paprika and remaining oil, and pulse until coarsely chopped. Season to taste, cover and refrigerate until required.
  • 02
  • Reduce oven to 160C. Heat oil in a large flameproof roasting pan over medium-high heat. Season shin to taste, add to pan and sear until browned all over without marrow touching pan directly (tilt shin against side of pan; 3-4 minutes each side). Add garlic and herbs to pan and fry until garlic starts to turn golden (1-2 minutes). Add wine and stock, bring to a simmer, cover with baking paper and foil, and braise in oven until meat is very tender and marrow is partially rendered (3½-4 hours).
  • 03
  • Increase oven to 200C. Fill the cavity of each half shin with a quarter of the romesco sauce, baste the meat with pan juices and roast until romesco is golden brown (10-15 minutes).
  • 04
  • Meanwhile, for kohlrabi salad, toss ingredients together in a bowl and season to taste.
  • 05
  • Spoon pan juices over beef shin and serve with kohlrabi salad and extra romesco.

Beef shin may need to be ordered ahead; ask your butcher to split lengthways through bone for two even halves.
