This is our family recipe for a super tender roast with very rich gravy. There’s something that a nice dark red wine does for a large cut of beef that just complements the flavor like nothing else. In this recipe we use Shiraz wine to flavor our beef and gravy, if this is something you haven’t tried, you are seriously missing out.
What to buy:
A nice dark bottle of Shiraz and your favorite cut of beef for roasting.
Level of difficulty:
Kitchen items needed:
Covered Roasting pan
Medium Sauce Pan
True story behind the gravy. When I came up with this recipe my wife went crazy for it. The bold flavor the gravy has due to the red wine is just something to rave about. So naturally my wife makes me cook it for her mother. My mother-in-law comes to dinner complaining that she doesn’t eat fancy foods with wine in them, etc.. etc…
To make a long story short, by the end of dinner my mother-in-law was caught red handed with a plate full of gravy. The gravy was on EVERYTHING including her salad… yes her salad.
So much for not liking my “fancy” cooking.
