Beef Braised in Red Wine (Manzo Brasato al Vino Rosso)

Pin It Now!

It's kind of the Italian version of boeuf bourguignon.

Beef stew meat cooked long and slow in a dutch oven or cast iron skillet.  Long and slow, braised in red wine, adding a delicious tart tang along with a natural sweetness.

And the gravy comes pre-coating, simply delicious.

OK... Here's What I did...

Beef Braised in Red Wine (Manzo Brasato al Vino Rosso)

  • 3 TBS Olive Oil
  • 2 Medium Red Onions, Finely Sliced
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 2 Pounds Beef Stew Meat, I cubed a couple of Sirloin Steaks
  • 2 TBS Flour
  • 1-1/4 Cup Dry Red Wine (Good Quality)
  • 2 Fresh Sage Sprigs
  • 1 Cup Beef Broth (I substituted Chicken Stock)
  • 1 TBS Tomato Paste
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste
  • 1 TBS Fresh Chopped Parsley for garnish
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Heat 1 TBS of the Olive Oil in a large heavy bottomed skillet (I used a cast iron skillet). Add the onions and saute for 5 minutes until soft and start to turn translucent.
  3. Add the garlic and continue to saute for 1 additional minute.
  4. Remove the onions with a slotted spoon. set aside.
  5. Add the remaining oil and heat over high heat. Add the stew meat and brown all sides, sauteing for 3-4 minutes
  6. Reduce the heat to medium low and sprinkle the flour over the meat, continue to stir, removing all lumps.
  7. Season with Salt and Pepper and add the Red Wine, bring to a simmer.
  8. Add the stock, sage and tomato paste, stir to coat.
  9. Cover and move the skillet to the oven for 2-1/2 to 3 hours until meat is very tender.
  10. Remove from the oven, taste and add seasonings to taste. Garnish with fresh cut parsley
  11. Serve HOT and enjoy
