Tips and tricks for the hot beef pot
Andi's tips for perfect Dutch Oven enjoyment
Tip 1: High quality food
The quality of the food is the be-all and end-all for a good dish. Start with fresh, high-quality ingredients to lay the foundation for a first-class taste experience.
Tip 2: Adjust the cooking time - the size of the pieces of meat counts
Cooking time is not a fixed concept. Adjust it to the size of the meat cubes to ensure that each piece is tender and perfectly cooked. The larger the pieces, the longer the meat will take.
Tip 3: Add plenty of salt right from the start
Add a generous amount of salt right from the start to intensify the flavors and give the dish a perfect seasoning. The salt also ensures that the meat stays nice and juicy.
Tip 4: Keep calm - the meat needs time
At the start of the cooking process, the meat should lie flat on the base of the Dutch oven without moving. Only when it has reached the desired color is it gently moved for maximum flavor development.
Tip 5: Red wine for an exquisite touch
The addition of red wine is important for the taste of your dish. This is because alcohol gives the dish a wonderful acidity and rounds off the taste perfectly.
