Beef in red wine sauce
- 700g pack Asda Butcher's Selection Slow Cook Stewing Steak
- 40g flour
- 3 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 large onion
- 400ml red wine
- 1 beef stock cube
- 1 level tbsp chopped fresh thyme leaves (or 1 tsp dried thyme)
- 500g carrots, sliced
- 2 x 300g cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
- 400g mushrooms, halved or quartered
- New potatoes, to serve
- Broccoli, to serve
Pre-heat the oven to 150C/130C Fan/Gas 2. Toss the meat in the flour so all the pieces are coated. Season.
Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a large frying pan and cook half the beef until browned on all sides. Transfer to a casserole dish. Repeat with another 1 tbsp oil and the rest of the beef, sprinkling on any remaining flour. Keep warm, uncovered, in the oven.
Wipe out the frying pan and cook the onion in the remaining oil until soft. Add this to the meat.
Pour the wine into the frying pan, crumble in the stock cube and heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add to the casserole with the thyme, carrots and 200ml boiling water. Cover and cook in the oven for 1 hour 30 minutes.
Stir in the beans and mushrooms. Cover and cook for another hour. Serve with new potatoes and broccoli.
