Cooking Instructions:
 

About 30 minutes before cooking, remove the defrosted meat from its packaging and pat dry with kitchen paper. Allow the meat to react room temperature.

Pre-heat the oven to 140 C / 275-325 F / Gas 1-3. Heat a large ovenproof pan on a high heat, add a little oil and sear the meat until nicely browned all over.

Then take out the meat and Sear any vegatable in this pan, add stock/wine and place the meat back in the pan, ensuring the liquid covers atleast a 1/3 to 1/2 of the meat and bring gently to the boil on the hob. Cover with a lid and transfer into the preheated oven, or continue to simmer gently on the hob at a very low temperature.

Check from time to time and top up liquid if needed. Cooking times vary depending on the cut and your oven but as a rule, try to check casseroles after an hour and regular intervals after. The easiest way to check joints is to use a meat folk, inserting it into thickest part.
