Slow Cooked Beef and Red Wine Ragout

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by ImPat

From a free cook book issued by Philadelphia (upon the purchase of 3 of their items). I'm hoping to make this in our winter (though a half recipe for 3 when the DH is on night shift due to his allergy issues with onions). Recommend you serve with cooked pasta.

Rich, creamy and delicious! I couldn't find pickling onions so just used large chunks of yellow onion, and had a few big mushrooms that needed using so threw them in the mix as well. Served over spinach pasta and really enjoyed - thanks for sharing the recipe!
