I made this on the weekend – didn’t follow method fully – chucked everything in – skipped the browning & coating in flour due to time restraints. Also omitted red wine as I didn’t have a bottle open. Sprinkled a small amount of gravox in at the end to thicken. Was absolutely delicious. Leftovers the next day were amazing too as the flavours really intensified.

This is amazing. I doubled the recipe and used chuck steak. I seared the meat first and followed all steps which was all worth the wonderful taste. Served on a garlic mash with crusty sourdough
