Recipe by EdsGirlAngie

Delicious and sophisticated comfort food! This is wonderful spooned on top of hot buttery mashed potatoes, or on a crusty sandwich roll with lots of melted cheese. Warm up and enjoy on a chilly night!

This was very easy to make. I didn't have brandy so I used Port. The gravy had a nice hearty flavor. My roast ended up being dry, but after I shredded it and let it sit in the juices, it was just fine!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown the roast on all sides in butter and oil.
  2. Pour in brandy, beef stock and half of the wine.
  3. Cover and simmer in a large pan on the stovetop for about 2-1/2 to 3 hours or until meat is very tender.
  4. Add the rest of the wine as needed so there is always some liquid in the pan; or, add more stock.
  5. Let cool, then shred, add salt and pepper to taste, and return to the cooking liquid.
  6. Reheat for hot beef sandwiches or to accompany mashed potatoes.
