Beef Stew in Red Wine Sauce For this beef stew, Jacques Pépin uses a special piece of the shoulder called the flatiron steak. This long, narrow piece is extremely lean, tender and moist, and it makes an ideal stew. He does not use stock, demiglace or even water. He makes his stew strictly with a robust red wine. This rich, winey beef stew is always a hit with his chef friends.
This roast beef tenderloin looks glamorous and tastes amazing, yet it's practically foolproof. The meat gets its deeply browned exterior in the oven at a single temperature; no pre-searing or fussing with different temperatures necessary. Even better: The deeply flavoured, thyme-infused red wine sauce can be made days ahead, so there's no last-minute panic when it comes time to serve.
Cook a roast for a special dinner and have ready-made meat for all kinds of other dishes the rest of the week: www.recipe.com/blogs/cooking/roast-beef-days-leftover-logic/?socsrc=recpinn012913leftoverlogicroast
