This dish is a total love-in of ingredients that just want to be together: beef, mushrooms, red wine, bacon and polenta.

I can’t even write about this Joseph Vargetto dish without salivating. It is so delicious. Beef is marinated in red wine, caramelised in a pan with mushrooms, then braised in the Thermomix until it’s melting tender and full of flavour. Just before serving, polenta is cooked with butter and cheese to irresistibility.
