It has loads of connective tissue and just enough marbled fat to ensure moisture, flavour and taste. Since this recipe is somewhat of a ritual, make double the quantities. It will not be wasted over those long, cold, winter weekend days - promise! For a change, crown the stew with delicious dumplings towards the end of the cooking time.
