Ingredients: 
  • 4 beef short ribs

Marinade:

  • 600ml red wine
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 1 white onion
  • 3 bay leaves

Celeriac Remoulade:

  • 1 medium celeriac
  • 4 tbsp of good mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp Crème Fraiche
  • ½ lemon, juice only
  • Small handful chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Sauce:

  • 1 tbsp Pomegranate Molasses
Preparation: 
  • Place the beef short ribs into a large tray or dish and add all the marinade ingredients to the beef. Place in the refrigerator overnight so the meat can tenderise and absorb the flavours.
  • Fill your sous vide water bath with water and preheat to 85°C (194°F).
  • Remove the beef from the marinade and place into a large vacuum pouch along with the garlic, onion and herbs. The red wine from the marinade will be used for a sauce and so do not discard.
  • Submerge the pouch completely in the water bath and cook for 12 hours.
  • Once cooked, drain off the meat juices and set aside. Add the red wine to a medium pan and reduce by two thirds. Add the meat juices and reduce further until the sauce reaches the desired consistency.
  • Strain the sauce using a Maslin cloth then add the pomegranate molasses and season to taste.​
  • Julienne the celeriac before adding all the other ingredients to make the remoulade.
  • Season the remoulade with salt, pepper and lemon to taste and then serve alongside the beef.
  • Serving suggestions include sous vide carrots or other hearty roast vegetables.
