Braised Beef


Prepare the marinade: Combine the wine with the chopped carrots and celery. With toothpicks fix the garlic and pancetta around the cut of meat. Place the meat in the wine and let it marinade overnight.

In a large saucepan, heat the butter, olive oil, onions, rosemary and the other herbs. Brown the meat on all sides. Add the marinade and cook slowly for at least 3 hours. If necessary, add some meat broth every so often. Remove the rosemary and sage. Add the baby onions and cook until they are tender.

Serve with mashed potatoes or polenta.
