Very good! I used regular port as well. The gravy was nicely flavored and the beef smelled so good while cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large pan, heat oil and brown roast on both sides.
  2. Add wine to pan and simmer roast, uncovered, until wine is reduced to about 1/2 (this will take about 15 minutes or so----I usually turn the roast over at least once during this time).
  3. Add consomme and simmer, covered, for 1 hour.
  4. In a small frying pan mix flour with melted butter to make a roux (lightly browned).
  5. After roast has simmered for the 1 hour, add roux to meat and sauce, stirring to thicken.
  6. Add the mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper.
  7. Cover and simmer until tender, at least another 1/2 hour.
  8. This can be served over noodles or rice and garnished with chopped parsley.
