Chianti Beef

2 pounds Top Sirloin
   cut into 2" cubes
   3 tbsp olive oil

1 750 ltr bottle of Chianti
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp tomato paste
2 garlic cloves, crushed
a few thyme springs
salt and black pepper


1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups beef stock
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes,
     roughly chopped
1 (13 oz) can artichoke
     hearts, drained and halved
1 (6 1/2 oz) can pitted black
     olives, drained
Thyme sprigs to garnish
 >> Place the beef in a 13" by 9" glass baking dish. Pour the wine over the Sirloin and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours. Turn the Sirloin over and marinate for another hour. Remove from the wine and pat dry with paper towels. Reserve the wine.

 >> In a large Dutch oven, heat 3 tablespoons of the oil over medium-high heat. Season the Sirloin on all sides with salt and pepper. Using tongs, place in the pan and brown on all sides, about 2 minutes each side. Remove the Sirloin and add the remaining oil. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring frequently for 2 minutes. Add the carrots, celery, garlic, olives, green beans, potatoes, rosemary and sage. Cook for 4 minutes. Pour the reserved wine, tomatoes and beef broth into the pan, scraping up the brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Return the Sirloin to the pan and bring the liquid to a boil. Cover the pan and simmer for 2 hours or until the meat is very tender.

 >> Remove the Sirloin and the rosemary sprigs from the stew. Place the meat on a cutting board and cut into 1" cubes and add back to the stew and heat until warmed through, about 5 minutes.
