Estouffade De Boeuf
From Dorothy McNett's recipes at www.dorothymcnett.com. A perfect beef dish for the holidays as it can be marinating 1-2 days. A great mixture of flavors makes it very "decorated" for your December events! (Any time of the year, for that matter!)
1 1/2 cups dry red wine
In a large bowl, whisk together the wine and 1/4 cup of the oil. Add garlic, herbs, salt and pepper. Marinate beef in this for 12-24 hours. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain and pat dry the beef, reserving the marinade. In a large casserole or sauté pan, heat the remaining 1/4 cup oil, add the beef, and brown it lightly on all sides. Add the onion and sauté for about 2 minutes. Add the reserved marinade, tomato, orange zest, and anchovies. Cover and bake for 2- 1/2 hours, adding a little water if the liquid dries up. Remove roast from oven, add the olives. Allow to stand about 10-15 minutes, lightly covered. Transfer beef to a cutting board and carve into slices. Arrange the slices on a heated platter and spoon on sauce and olives.
