30g spring onion, chopped steamed rice or kumara mash, to serve
Combine the garlic, rosemary, chilli, salt and pepper, lime juice and olive oil (saving 50 ml) and rub into the chops. Place the chops into a large container, seal and leave to rest overnight. The next day place 50ml olive oil in a pan and saute the shallots. Add the marinated chops and saute until golden. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes, then add the butter beans, potatoes and carrots. Cover with Monteith’s Celtic Red. Bring to the boil and cook for 5minutes over a high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and with the lid on simmer for 11⁄ hours, checking the beer level and adding more if required to keep the meat covered. After 45 minutes add the four pieces of red cabbage one by one, leaving them in complete pieces on top of the meat. After 1 hour and 10 minutes add the coriander, Italian parsley and spring onion. Cook for a further 5 minutes and serve.
