Directions:

STEP 1

Season the beef with salt and pepper. Then take a large casserole and heat 2 tablespoons of white truffle oil and add grated onions, carrots, and celery. Stir the mix of vegetables until they are all golden.

STEP 2

In a pan, sear the beef on both sides, then add garlic to it in order to continue to flavor it and cook for one minute while you also continue to season it with salt and pepper. Add some wine and simmer until it is reduced by half and finally add a previously washed Parmigiano Reggiano cheese crust over it.

STEP 3

Place the beef and all contents of the pan in the casserole with the other vegetables in a preheated oven at 350 degrees and cook for about 3 hrs. Check the beef every now and then while cooking and add wine in the casserole to continue to flavor the meat and keep it tender.

STEP 4

When ready, transfer the meat to a cutting board and strain the liquid in the casserole in a smaller pan. Bring the liquid to a boil and let it cook uncovered for a few minutes to to thicken it until it becomes a sauce. Add white truffle butter to thicken the sauce even further and when ready pour it over the beef to add flavor. Place the beef and all contents of the casserole in a clean plate and add plenty of shaved Parmigiano Reggiano over it along with some shaved White Truffle.

Buon Appetito!

Translated in English, the word “stracotto” means “overcooked”. It simply means that the beef is allowed to simmer and stew to a perfect fall-apart, fork-tender texture. Different cities in Italy claim to be the place where this dish originated, but clearly it has become an Italian favorite Fall/Winter dish that is enjoyed worldwide. White truffles, which are harvested from October to December, give this seasonal dish a strong, earthy flavor and distinctive fragrance. We like it best when cooked with Urbani Truffles and Prunotto Wines.

Chef Michele’s Pairing Tip:

Chef Michele recommends pairing the dish with two wines both made with Nebbiolo grapes from Le Langhe region in Piedmont, which is also the region that’s known for having the best white truffles in the world: Barolo, for a more decisive taste, or the sophisticated and slightly gentles Barbaresco wine. Chef Michele recommends the Prunotto label, from a 1904 winery based in Alba.
