2½ tbsp olive oil 1 onion, finely chopped 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped 1 boneless beef shin (1.9 kg), cut into 4 equal pieces 250 gm peeled Italian tomatoes, crushed 125 ml (½ cup) red wine 125 ml (½ cup) veal stock 2 tbsp red wine vinegar Thinly peeled rind of 1 orange 2 fresh bay leaves 500 gm short rigatoni 200 gm Persian feta ¼ cup mint, shredded To serve: finely grated parmesan, optional

  • Preheat oven to 150C. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a casserole over low-medium heat, add onion and garlic and stir occasionally until very tender (20-30 minutes).
  • 02
  • Meanwhile, heat remaining oil in a frying pan over high heat until hot, add beef and turn occasionally until golden (5-7 minutes), then transfer to casserole with polpa, wine, stock, vinegar, rind and bay leaves. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to the simmer, season to taste, cover with a lid or foil and braise in oven, turning meat once or twice until it pulls apart easily (4½-5 hours).
