Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 2 red onions, roughly chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 2 teaspoons whole peppercorns

Directions

In a stew pot, heat up the extra-virgin olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the beef, onions and garlic. Sear for about 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add all of the wine. It should be enough to cover the beef. Season with salt and whole peppercorns.
