Ingredients
  • 3 lbs boneless beef chuck roast, trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • 1 onion, halved and sliced thin
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced
  • 2 tsps Jane's Garrigue spice mix (see below)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups red wine
  • 2 cups beef stock
  • 2 tbsps butter
  • 2 tbsps flour
  • minced fennel top for garnish
Directions

Cut the beef into 2" chunks. In a heavy flameproof casserole or stock pot, heat 2 Tbl. olive oil over medium-high heat. Brown the meat in batches and remove from pot to a bowl to catch the juices.

 

Add 1 Tbl. olive oil to the pot and add the sliced onion and fennel. Cook over medium low heat for about 10 minutes, until soft and translucent. Add the garlic, spices ( ee below), red wine, stock and tomato paste and stir to mix well.

Return all meat and collected juices to the pot. Bring to a fast simmer, reduce heat and simmer slowly over very low heat for 2 hours or until meat is tender. Taste and adjust for salt.

 

Mix the flour and butter in a small bowl with a fork to make a paste. Whisk the mixture into the stew juices. Heat gently another 10-15 minutes. If sauce seems a little thick, add a small amount of water and heat through.

 

Serve with roasted root vegetables, mashed potatoes or potato gratin.
