Here is the recipe I used:
2 lbs. of chuck meat, or stew meat
1 cup of red wine
(2) 8 oz. cans of Hunt’s tomato sauce
(1) 12 oz. can of beef broth
1 medium onion
A few carrots sliced up into coins
2 potatoes (any kind) cut into 1-inch cubes
1 big bag of frozen mixed vegetables (I used the one with carrots, corn, string beans, and peas
Flour and salt the beef and make sure it is cut into bite size pieces. Brown the beef in a dutch oven in 3 tablespoons of butter and a little olive oil (do in batches).
Put the meat back into the dutch oven, add wine, and scrape the brown bits from the pot. Add the cans of Hunts and the can of beef broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cook for two hours.
Add carrots, potatoes and mixed vegetables and let simmer all day for as long as you want, the longer the better!
Serve with rustic bread and voila!!!
