  • 300ml red wine
  • 300ml stock
  • 3 rounded tbsp cranberry sauce

Method

  1. Cut the meat into large slices, about 8cm square. Tip 2 tbsp flour with some salt and pepper into a large food bag, add the beef and shake to coat the pieces. Thinly slice the onions.

  2. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a large heavy-based pan. Add the beef and fry on all sides until evenly browned. You may need to do this in two batches. Remove to a plate.

  3. Heat 1tbsp oil in the pan if you need it, then add the onions and fry quickly for 5 minutes until tinged brown. Return the beef to the pan and add the wine and stock. Bring to the boil, stirring to scrape up the juices. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  4. Reduce the heat, cover tightly with a lid and cook at a gentle simmer for 11⁄2 hours until the beef is tender. Stir in the cranberry sauce, taste and add more seasoning if necessary. Simmer for a further 5 minutes and serve with mash, and a scattering of flatleaf parsely.

Simple, warming, delicious. The cranberry lifts the meaty flavours wonderfully. The beef came out really tender. Will be having again!

Absolutely gorgeous! I used 600ml of red wine and 2 stock cubes (instead of 300ml of water based stock) Makes for a fuller flavour - more like a bouginon - and I love the fact theres harldy any washing up! Served this with creamed spinach (recipe available on here)

This is a great recipe. I only added garlic and chestnut mushrooms to the original recipe and cooked in the oven. It smelled and tasted wonderful. I simply served with horseradish mash. Will definitely make this again and again.

I made this tonight for me and my husband and it was gorgeous! I added some cornflour to thicken the sauce up a little and used redcurrant jelly from Asda - just as good as cranberry sauce I'm sure! Really delicious! A real autumn meal perfect for these cold nights!!!

Chuck steak never tasted so good! I made half the recipe and added the cranberry sauce in with the wine & stock. It was delicious! The plates were thoroughly cleaned up! Will definitely make again!

HAD A LOT OF TOUGH, BUT TASTY BEEF IN THE FREEZER, GAVE THIS A GO AS PER THE RECIPE, BUT LET IT COOK FOR 30 MINS LONGER AND THE RESULT WAS BRILLIANT, VERY SIMPLE, AND EXTREMELY TASTY. GO'S WELL WITH MASH POTATO 1/2 AND 1/2 SWEET AND NORMAL....GOOD TO REMEMBER FOR THOSE TOUGH BITS OF MEAT..
