VITELLO TONNATO - Recipe#1

Recipe #1
VITELLO TONNATO
Serves 4
Beef Stock.
" 1 lb beef, top round (or equally equivalent non fatty meat)
" 1 medium onion.
" 1 carrot.
" 2 sticks of celery.
" 1 potato.
" 2 cloves of garlic.
" 6 peppercorns.
" Bouquet garni of fresh herbs, rosemary, thyme, sage.
" 5 liters (1 gallon) of water.
Sauce
" Mayonnaise (either homemade or bought)
" 1 egg.
" 400ml Olive oil.
" Half a lemon.
" 1 tin of tuna in brine.
" Few capers.
" 5 anchovy fillets.


In a large pan add the vegetables all whole with the salt and peppercorns and herbs to the water and bring to the boil. When the water is boiling add the beef and on a medium low heat cook for 45 minutes. Take the meat from the stock and set aside to cool.
To make the mayonnaise blend the egg with 100ml of the olive oil plus lemon juice and a pinch of salt. Add the rest of the oil very slowly until it emulsifies and looks like mayonnaise.
Mix all the other sauce ingredients into the mayonnaise. Slice the beef thinly and arrange on a plate. Put some of the sauce onto the beef, garnish with capers and some parsley leaves.
