Slow Beef Curry

This beef curry is made using a cut of beef known as the leg of mutton cut.  It's found inside the shoulder and lies just below the chuck.  Ideal for slow cooking, this cut lends itself perfectly to curry. For an extra flavour hit, we've used a quick pickle from forced rhubarb to top it off!
