  • Peposo
    Recipe contributed by Holli DeLauro
    Ingredients
    • 2 pounds beef shank (or chuck or stewing beef)
    • 1 head of garlic
    • 3/4 oz (1 1/2 tablespoons) WHOLE peppercorns
    • Salt, preferably rough sea salt, to taste
    • 1 bottle red wine, preferably Chianti
    Preparation
    Cut the beef into large chunks, about 1 1/2 - 2 inch cubes. Lay the beef chunks into the bottom of a terracotta pot (or whatever vessel you're using) and randomly insert the garlic cloves among the beef chunks here and there. Sprinkle the whole peppercorns and salt over everything. Pour over enough red wine to cover the beef. Cover the pot and place in a 325°F for 4 hours or more, until the beef is falling apart tender and the red wine has reduced into a rich sauce. If the dish is still too liquid and you're ready to eat, remove the cover, which will allow it to reduce more quickly.

    NOTES:

    • A terracotta pot with a cover is best used to obtain traditional flavor, but any oven-proof Dutch oven with a lid would work.
    • Traditionally this dish is served with beans and/or sautéed greens and Tuscan bread, but modern cooks are serving it with polenta or even mashed potatoes.
