Slow Cooked Shin Chilli With Tortilla Bowls


⭐️1Kg Beef Shin

⭐️4 Cloves Garlic Finely Sliced

⭐️2 Large Onions Finely Sliced

⭐️2 Tsp Ground Cumin

⭐️2 Tsp Ground Smoked Paprika

⭐️1 Tbsp Dark Brown Soft Sugar

⭐️1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon

⭐️Chilli Flakes To Taste  (I don’t use chilli while cooking for the mini farmers)

⭐️x2 400g Tins Chopped Tomatoes

⭐️2 Red Peppers

⭐️x1 400g Tin Kidney Beans

⭐️X4 Soft Tortilla Wraps

⭐️Olive Oil

⭐️Salt and Pepper To Taste

⭐️Sour Cream, Jalapeños and Mixed Salad To Serve


1, Turn oven on to 160 degrees

2, Chop the shin into cubed pieces (I find it easiest to use large scissors for this as the membranes in shin can be rather tough with a knife)

3, In small batches gently brown the shin until golden brown on all sides. Then set to one side.

4, Add the onions and garlic to the pan and cook for around 5 mins until beginning to soften.

5, Add the shin back into the pan along with resting juices. Then add all the spices and mix well to combine. Cook for 2 mins.

6, Add the two tins of tomatoes and the brown sugar and mix well. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil then add a lid.

7, Pop in the oven for 2.5 hrs checking regularly and stirring. Add more water if the chilli is looking dry.

8, Then add the peppers and drained kidney beans. Stir well to combine. Pop back in the oven for a further hour or until the meat is falling apart and the peppers are soft. Then serve with the tortillas bowls, sour cream, jalapeños and a side salad.

To Make the tortilla bowls

1, Place two bowls upside down on a baking tray. Put a square of greaseproof paper on the top of the bowls.

2, Put a tortilla wrap over the top of each bowl and gently shape to the bowl.

3, Pop in the oven for 5 mins or until the tortillas start to brown.

4, Remove from the oven and place the tortillas on upturned tumblers. Quickly shape the tortillas into more of a bowl shape and allow to cool.

5, Repeat with the remaining tortillas.



⭐️Add chilli flakes to taste….As I am always cooking for our mini farmers I prefer to add jalapeños for heat when serving.
