Jockey Stew

21 Jul


Mr. Peter Perkins, international 8-goal polo player, blah blah.

Possibly the worst of all of the composites that American Tobacco came up with for their “discriminating people” campaign, though there is strong competition; the entire building in the background is from another picture, the dog and the jockey have both been added to the lawn, and the lawn is just plopped on top of the background. There is also a shadow on the background which has no object to cast it (just behind the jockey’s leg on the left).  But bad compositing doesn’t even begin to compare with the message the ad sends, continuing the Herbert Tareyton series of coded wolf whistles to “discriminating people”, otherwise known as bigots.

What to do with this sporty figure? Here’s a totally paleo recipe for those occasions when you are able to get your hands on one. Note: the good “people” at the Zombie Test Kitchen didn’t care much for this recipe, saying it is “too frou-frou”. One must remember that most of the time zombies, when they speak, are actually saying “RRAAWW”.

Jockey Stew

2 1/2 pounds jockey shoulder or butt*, cut into 2-inch chunks
3 fennel bulbs, thinly sliced. Reserve some greens for presentation
1 medium onion, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3/4 cup dry white wine
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons fresh oregano
3 tomatoes, chopped

* Works well with fox hunter shoulder or butt, too, if jockey is not available. Beagle not included.

Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add meat; sprinkle with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Cook until brown on all sides, 10 minutes or so. Add wine to the pan and scrape up any browned bits; lower the heat.

Add the fennel and onion. Sprinkle the garlic, rosemary, and oregano over the meat. Add the tomatoes.

Cover and cook on low heat for 3 to 4 hours or until you think it’s done. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve garnished with the reserved greens.

As a side note, the rather lean jockey meat makes excellent jerky, too. You can use the Beef Heart Jerky recipe for jockey easily. Jockey jerky is just jake!
