How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Pat the beef dry with paper towels and sprinkle generously with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy 6-quart roasting pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the beef and cook until brown on all sides - about 20 minutes total cooking time.
  • Transfer the beef to a rimmed platter.
  • Add remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan, add the shallots and saute until tender (about 5 minutes), scraping up the brown bits on the bottom of the pot.
  • Add the garlic and saute for 1 minute.
  • Add the wine and boil for 1 minute.
  • Stir in the broth and mushrooms.
  • Return the beef to the pan along with any juices on the platter.
  • Bring the liquids to a boil.
  • Cover and transfer to the oven.
  • Braise until the beef is fork-tender, turning the beef over halfway through cooking, about 3 hours (I like to put in the meat thermometer at this point as well to make sure it is cooked all the way through when the time is up).
  • Transfer the beef to a cutting board.
  • Tent the beef with foil and let stand 15 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, spoon any excess fat off the top of the pan juices.
  • Transfer the pan juices and vegetables to a blender and puree until smooth.
  • Combine the gravy and rosemary sprig (broken in half) in heavy medium saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Season the gravy, to taste, with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the beef across the grain into ½-inch-thick slices.
  • Arrange the sliced beef on a platter and garnish with rosemary.
  • Spoon the gravy over and serve, passing the remaining gravy alongside.

    Love the rosemary addition and the combination of mushrooms. Very savory and quite toothsome, to say the least.
