Such care was always taken when he cooked beef, to ensure that the meat was tender and would literally just fall off the bone. But no matter how hard I try, I just can’t seem to recreate it the way he did! However, I drew on his adoration and love of beef with this recipe instead and my heritage as a meat-loving South African!
