Braised Beef and Greens

Braised Beef and Greens

     No clue where I came up with this idea. I was sitting at home and was craving something delicious. I had a hankering for some cooked greens but wanted to add something different to them. Sort of make them not the spotlight of the meal but an added attraction. I had a flank steak in the freezer and wanted to try something different. Why not braise the beef with the greens and add a little kick from some shallots and some fresh mushrooms. So here goes, a wonderful braised beef and greens meal that you will fall in love with and certainly will become a regular meal for you or you and your family.  Braised Beef and Greens.

  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1 large shallot
  • ½ cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ cup beef stock
  • Bunch fresh baby spinach
  • McCormick’s steak seasoning
  • Olive oil
  • Salt/pepper

1.       Take your flank steak and cut it against the grain into about ½ inch strips.

2.       Chop up mushrooms and dice shallots

3.       In a large skillet pour in some olive oil, salt and pepper your steak, and then sauté the steak until browned. Remove and set aside.

4.       In same skillet sauté the shallots and mushrooms in same oil.

5.       Toss in the spinach in bundles and wilt down.

6.       Pour in the white wine and bring to a simmer.

7.       Pour in the beef stock and return steak to skillet and shake in a couple dashes of steak seasoning.

8.       In 350 degree oven cover the steak mixture in skillet and braise in the oven for 45 minutes.
     This beef dish was fantastic, tender, flavorful, and fulfilling all in one. I hope you give it a try. I served mine with a bit of mac-n-cheese but I really didn’t need it. Enjoy!
