Badia di Morrona presents I’ Brindellone
Wineries embrace restaurants. For the column “Ristorante Amico” (Friend-restaurant), a wine producer presents one of his favorite restaurants, which in return offers a recipe paired with one of his wines.
If you are looking for a restaurant in Florence where you can eat typical Tuscan cuisine in an environment that is, as described by the owners, rich with: "honesty, quality, respect, kindness, calm and... laughter!” then I' Brindellone is the place for you.
The three partners who run it, Manuele Marchi, Marcello di Grazia and Sauro Brandani, have made of this osteria a true point of reference for both Florentines who know where to eat well at a good price, and those who are more or less passing through and are looking for very traditional dishes.
The proposed recipe:
I’ Brindellone Stew
Ingredients for 4 servings:
1 kg stewing beef, 2 kg peeled tomatoes, 100 g tomato paste, 2 carrots, 2 large onions, 2 celery ribs, 100 g parsley, 2 garlic cloves.
Remove excess fat from the meat and truss it with kitchen twine. Make a mirepoix with the celery, carrots, onion, garlic and chopped parsley.
Brown it well then simmer with abundant red wine, allowing the wine to evaporate.
Add the pureed tomatoes, a spoonful of tomato paste, and salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for about 3 hours.
Slice and serve covered with its sauce.
