Tender Braised Beef

Let’s keep this short…

This braised beef is awesome. My husband has requested it 4 times in the past 2 weeks and I am so proud of myself for creating this simple, yet delicious dish.

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

  • 2 sirloin steaks, 3 lbs total
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine ( I used a Sangiovese blend)
  • 1 cup of water or beef broth (I used water)
  • 3 Tbsn salted butter
  • Salt & Pepper

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees and heat a heavy duty pan over med-high heat. I used my Le Creuset braiser, it works great! Generously season the steaks with salt and pepper.

Melt 1 Tbsn of butter and sear the steaks for a couple minutes on each side. Pour 1/2 cup of a dry red wine, over the steaks. The wine will loosen up all those yummy bits stuck to the bottom of the pan <—— my favorite part! Next, add a cup of water or beef broth and top the steaks with 2 Tbsn of butter. Cover with a lid and place in the oven for 3 hours. When the beef is done, it will easily fall apart. Shred it apart with 2 forks and mix it to incorporate all the liquid.

Enjoy & You’re Welcome!
