I am doing a dinner party next week on Friday so I was in the the Butchers and these huge chunks of Chuck Steak were begging me to make them mine! I called it Bullfighters Beef because I cooked them the same way I would Rabo de Torro, let me tell you so good a rich reduced sauce and you could cut the meat with a spoon, heaven.
Take the Meat out the fridge an hour before you start cooking, season some flour on a plate and dip the Meat in it and shake off any excess.
In a very hot skillet add some Olive Oil and sear the Meat to brown all over and set aside.
Your whole Kitchen is by now filling with the most mouthwatering aromas.
At the end of cooking take out the meat out carefully so that it doesn't break up and with a hand blender Blitz the sauce to mush up the Carrots and Onion return the Meat for another ten minutes and return to the Oven.
After ten minutes take out of the Oven set aside the Meat and put the Casserole Dish on the hob at it's highest heat and reduce for around 15 minutes. I added a drop of Port to enrich the Sauce and at the end of reduction a knob of Butter to give a gloss to the sauce...Heaven, Serve with chopped Parsley and as I did Pomme Puree glazed Balsamic Onions Peas and Carrots. What a joy
