1) Mix chilli, cumin, pepper, ginger, garlic and tumeric in a small bowl, set aside.
2) Heat oil in a large heavy-based saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 10 minutes or until golden. Add beef in batches and cook for 10 minutes, or until beef is lightly browned.
3) Return all beef to the pan, add the mixed spices plus the cinnamon stick, cardamon and nutmeg. COok for 2 minutes or until fragrant. Add water (it should just cover beef) and chilli, bring to a boil.
4) Reduce heat and simmer for 1 hour.
5) Stir in vinegar and sugar and cook for a further 20 minutes.
6) Meanwhile, cook rice for 10 - 15 minutes in boiling water then drain. Serve with lots of fresh steamed vegetables.
Delicious combination of flavours. If you have time to marinate the shanks in the red wine and spices overnight then so much the better.
Best to use a presure cooker if you have one but if not then translate the cooking time for a slow cooker or casserole. Bottomline, you have to cook this long and slow to achieve the desired effect.
As the meat will 'fall off' the bone during cooking this is an ideal dish to place on the table and let everyone serve themselves. We had it with side dishes of lentils and barley and long beans and bok choy sauteed in garlic.
Ok, so it uses a commercial sauce and spice base, and the sodium level isn't exactly low, but this is a great recipe for when you want something simple and quick which will look and taste great. It's even better when served with the side dish suggested under 'Tips', which I adapted from one of Jamie Oliver's 15 minute meal side dishes.Submitted by HAVETOGETITOFF
