Consomme

ingredients

makes 1 litre
100 g lean shin of beef
125 ml water
1 small onion (50 g approx)
1 small carrot (25 g approx)
1 small stick of celery (25 g approx)
1.25 litres cold brown stock
bouquet garni
1/4 tsp salt
4 white peppercorns
white and crushed shell of 1 egg

method

1. Shred the beef finely, trimming off all the fat.

2. Soak the meat in the water for 15 minutes.

3. Prepare the vegetables.

4. Put the meat, water, and the rest of the ingredients into a deep saucepan, adding the egg white and shell last.

5. Heat slowly to simmering point, whisking all the time, until a froth rises to the surface.

6. Remove the whisk, cover, and simmer the consomme very gently for 1 1/2 - 2 hours.

7. Do not allow to boil or the froth will break up and cloud the consomme.

8. Strain slowly into a basin through muslin or a scalded jelly bag.

9. If necessary, strain the consomme again. Re heat, re season if required, and serve plain or with a garnish.
