“There is a great citrus flavour with a lit­tle sweet­ness in this recipe and is very com­fort­ing on cooler evenings!”


900g beef, diced into 2cm pieces

2 tb­sps ar­row­root, to dust 5 shal­lots, peeled and halved 2cm fresh gin­ger, sliced 2 gar­lic cloves, sliced

Add the shal­lots to the pan and sauté for about 3 to 4 min­utes. Add the gin­ger, gar­lic and red chilli. Sea­son with salt and freshly ground black pep­per. Re­turn the meat to the saucepan and pour over the stock.
