Red Wine Herb Casserole with Potato, Celery, Butter and Garlic Puree. Juchee!

Contains Spanish Red Wine Advertisement

O k, it's really darn difficult, all these really good things in a small headline to squeeze. Almost impossible! So here comes the whole thing again in the Long Version: Today we talk about a two days in red wine and herbs marinated beef and an incredibly fluffy potato and celery puree with an outrageous portion of butter and roasted garlic. Now you know the whole thing. Drooling allowed.

Two days ago, I bought the beef from the Butcher of Trust and happily scratched it home with it. My friend Vivien already told me a few summers ago in flowery colors of this great recipe that she got to know during her stays in the warm South. And that's how I felt then, that I've been haunting my head for years: tidy pieces of beef are spread with spicy mustard and then marinated with herbs and red wine for several days. The marinade also makes cheaper non-fillet parts such as Tafelspitz wonderfully tender. Then the aromatic meat comes on the hot grill and sizzles brown to himself. In addition a piece of baguette and a green salad ... life can be so beautiful!

I have the whole unceremoniously translated into the winter. (Who of you has an outdoor grill in the winter: happy you!) But there must be whole indoor with the pan work. And it does. Even right, really good. The lettuce is quickly replaced by a generous puree - terrific soulfood in the cold season!

The whole thing is also so incredibly good, because you can do almost nothing and also not have much to do. Only with the roast must not spoil - but we get together without any problems. Also important are a few aromatic ingredients for the marinade: fresh herbs, some garlic and a rich, full-bodied wine. But you do not necessarily have to grab the 35-Euro-bottle. Even in the supermarket of trust you will find what you are looking for: I used a Spanish Rioja for my recipe. Wines from "La Rioja" are protected by the oldest denomination of origin of Spain and may only originate from this region.

The puree then makes itself almost by itself.

Have it delicious
