1kg osso-buco beef, cut into slices

2 garlic cloves

5 tablespoons raw paw paw puree

Juice of 1 lime

1 teaspoon black pepper

1 onion, sliced

2 tablespoons tomato paste

2 beef bouillon cubes

1 teaspoon curry powder

What to do:

On a chopping board, finely chop the garlic cloves, put the garlic on the osso-buco, add black pepper, paw paw puree and set aside to marinate for about an hour or two.

In a pan over medium heat add in the oil, add in onions and saute until almost golden brown. Go in with the marinated osso-buco and cook for about five minutes or until you seal the pores.
