Mediterranean Steak Ragu Recipe

1 vote | 2029 views

Beef is joined with flavors of the Mediterranean and blissfully simmered into taste-bud matrimony. Garam Masala makes a simple yet outspoken appearance featuring spinach. The richness of olives and hearty tomatoes meld together for a dish that can stand alone or smother aromatic jasmine or basmati rice. Also, this dish can be eloquently served with simple crusty artisan bread drizzled in olive oil and doused with fresh cracked pepper.

  1. In a 5 quart dutch oven, heat 1 tsp. oil ( per batch) and bay leaves to medium- high and brown beef in small batches. Once all beef has been browned, re-add to dutch oven and add onions. Reduce heat and cook until onions are translucent but not browned-about 5 minutes.
  2. Add stewed tomatoes, olives, mushrooms, red pepper flakes, worcestershire and consomme. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer.
  3. Simmer until meat flakes apart with a fork-about 2 hours. Break meat apart with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  4. Next, add onion powder, garam masala, tomato soup, brown sugar and spinach. Simmer until heated through.

      Thanks for going over this recipe J Spot. I re-read it and realized that I had failed to mention the olive oil as well as sliced olive amounts. I revised it accordingly. Hopefully this will help. Again, thank you.

        This is different from any recipe I've made. I've not mixed italian and indian spices before (other than cumin). Will give this a try and let you know how it is.
