Succulent Beef Simmered in Red Wine

This is a recipe I always want to make when I get beef cheeks or shank meat. The sauce is made brilliant by a touch of chocolate.

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 6 Prep: 60 min Cook: 30 min

Ingredients

Beef cheeks or shank meat 1kg
Red wine 1 bottle
Carrots 2-3
Onions 1-2
Celery 2-3
Garlic 3 cloves
Bouquet garni 1
Beef stockpot 1
Flour 1/2 cup
Olive oil as required
Butter as required
Dark chocolate 3-4 pieces

Method

1
Beef cheeks are on average 500g, so use 2. Chop each into 6 pieces about 7cm cubes. Soak in the red wine for 1 hour.
2
In the meantime, roughly chop the carrot, onion, celery and garlic and fry in a bit of oil on low heat for 30 minutes. Try not to burn it.
3
Remove the beef from the wine and pat dry. Dredge with flour and put into a pressure cooker with some melted butter. Add the fried vegetables, the wine from soaking, stockpot and bouquet garni. Cook for 20 minutes.
4
Turn the heat off and allow the pressure to subside. Transfer the meat to another pan and add some of the soup from the pressure cooker. Add the chocolate and simmer on low heat, season with salt & pepper.
5
The meat is very tender with a delicious concentrated sauce. Serve with warm vegetables, potatoes, pasta or baguette and enjoy!

Tips & Note

This dish doesn't use tomatoes, instead the chocolate gives it a rich deep simmered sauce, suitable for grown up appetites. Beef cheeks or shank meat is available at the butcher counter of upmarket stores, and is generally good value.
