Tender Braised Beef

No recipe image available.Tender cubes of beef, slow-simmered in a garlic-and-ginger infused broth, makes this dish a far cry from the typical beef stew. Serve over noodles, rice or a bed of mashed potatoes. The aroma alone will be enough to call the troops to dinner.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 green onions, trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
1/4 cup sherry
4 garlic cloves, crushed
2 teaspoons grated peeled ginger root
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 1/2 pounds chuck steak, cubed
3 cups chicken broth
Cooked noodles, rice or mashed potatoes for accompaniment

Cooking Directions:

  1. Whisk together green onion with sherry, garlic, ginger, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Heat peanut oil in heavy skillet over medium-high heat; brown steak quickly on all sides.
  3. Add the sherry mixture and cook, stirring, for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add chicken broth and simmer, covered, for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until meat is tender.
  5. Serve over a bed of noodles, rice or mashed potatoes.

Makes 10 to 12 servings.
