Yummy Scrummy Braised Beef With Red Wine and Cranberry

Recipe by HappyBunny
READY IN: 2hrs 10mins




  • Cut the steak into bite size pieces and tip into a large food bag with the flour and some salt and pepper.
  • Give the bag a good shake, making sure the beef is well coated.
  • Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large pan.
  • Add the beef and fry until evenly browned.
  • Remove to a plate.
  • You can do this in two batches if you prefer.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of oil in the pan and add the onions.
  • Fry for 5 minutes until they're slightly brown.
  • Return the beef to the pan and add the wine and stock.
  • Bring to the boil, stirring well to scrape up the juices.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • NOTE: I only add pepper at this stage because my stock is pretty salty.
  • Reduce the heat, cover tightly with a lid and cook at a gentle simmer for one and a half hours until the beef is tender.
  • Stir in the cranberry sauce and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  • Simmer it for a few minutes and serve with a huge dollop of creamy mashed potatoes.
  • Happy Cooking!
