James Martin Dexter Beef with Garlic and Parsley risotto and roasted shallots recipe on James Martin’s Map of Britain

James Martin visits Northern Ireland to discover the taste of Dexter beef and serves up a beef dish with garlic and parsley risotto and roasted shallots on James Martin’s Map of Britain.

This is a rich dish of creamy risotto topped with tender pieces of fillet beef. James says: “This dish is a real taste of Ireland, and when you have a cut of meat as special as this one, the key is to keep the recipe simple.”

For his recipe, James used the following ingredients:

50g butter, 50g fresh parsley, ½ garlic clove, crushed, 4 banana shallots, three halved (with skin on) and one finely chopped, 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped, 50g arborio rice, 50ml white wine, 300ml chicken stock, 25ml olive oil, 1 x 500g beef fillet, salt and freshly ground black pepper, 2 tbsp mascarpone, 50g parmesan, and 1 small bunch fresh parsley, leaves chopped.
