Sear a piece of beef brisket on all sides until browned and place in a casserole dish. Fry a couple of chopped onions
and a crushed clove of garlic until softened, then stir in a ˝ Tbs flour. Mix well, then add a wine glass of red wine
and a similar amount of beef stock, bring to a simmer and pour this over the beef. Season with some black pepper,
put a lid on the casserole and bake in a 160°C oven for about 2 to 2˝ hours, until meltingly soft. Carve into slices
and serve with the onion sauce, along with mashed potatoes to which you’ve added a knob of butter and a good handful
of grated sharp cheddar cheese, and a salad of watercress, avocado and oranges.
