Asado with honey mustard and wine

Asado is the best meat to be cooked for a longer period of time. It is fatty in all the right places and loves to get flavors from spices and external factors. What's also good about this type of meat is that the preparation of Asado is very simple - there is an initial bit of preparation and then hours of cooking later. This leaves you with plenty of time to do other things like household chores or even invest some much needed time and attention for that perfect appetizer. The following recipe is a classic recipe in the high Holidays because it contains a fair amount of honey, which works well on the hotplate on holidays. An additional note before beginning, there are a lot of types of honey. The inferior which can be found at the supermarket - part of what is called "honey" is actually burnt sugar with flavorings. So as you are careful about good wine, good oil and meat quality - Do not underestimate your honey. For example, I make it a point to buy honey at specialized stores. Invest a little in honey - it will only do good for any dish of your choice.

Shoulder is a piece of meat that loves to cook for a long time. The same goes for root vegetables and therefore their combination is perfect. Beef shoulder with root vegetables is a delicious, filling and warming dish – so it is perfect for those winter days and especially Shabbat. This recipe uses beef stock, but I am aware that this is not readily available in every household and therefore you may use a powdered substitute of beef stock (don’t worry, I won’t tell!)...
