Scottona slices on a red wine sauce
A TASTY DISH :)
The Scottona is a young female cow that has never been pregnant and aged 15/16 mothi and provides an excellent tender meat. The meat is recognized by the small infiltration of fat in the muscle mass.
Make sure when you buy the meat, that the slices are fresh and have within them the veins of fat so you are sure that it is very soft! I chose the long cooking time (one hour) so that the flavor of the meat with red wine sauce is unique and I used a pan of 23cmx10cm. So the ingredients are:
8 slices (about 600 grams),
800 g of potatoes
1 liter of groundnut oil
2 cloves of garlic,
1 sprig of rosemary,
1 stalk of celery,
7 dl of red wine for kitchen (I chose, however, a Nero d'Avola)
Extra virgin olive oil!
Water, salt, pepper!
Chop onion and celery and peel the garlic. Pour oil around the pan and bring to medium heat. Then fry the garlic and onion for a few minutes. Remove from heat and add now, apart from the meat, the other ingredients. Then boil for five minutes. now add the slices and cover the pan with the lid. Lower the heat and check some time.
Meanwhile, wash and cut the potatoes into strips as in the photo, which are fried in peanut oil for 25 minutes.
