Comfort food at its best – this richly flavoured Italian-style beef is perfect for a family meal or relaxed entertaining.
*Brisket is an economical joint that becomes tender and succulent with long, slow cooking. Topside could also be used.
*For convenience, this dish can be made ahead. Put the sliced meat into the sauce with the vegetables, allow to cool, then keep in the fridge. Reheat at 130°C (gas 1/2) for 45 minutes–1 hour until it is thorougly heated through.
This is an amazing recipe. It is very easy to prepare and tastes as good as anything in a restaurant. I took the advice at the end of the recipe, 'Cook Smart' and sliced the beef, returned to the sauce and refridgerated. The next day I reheated as directed for a quick meal. I'm sure this helped the flavours develop even more. This recipe is definately for keeping!! - 14 Oct 2009
