Slow-Braised Beef and Cherry Tomato Sauce
It's the perfect slow-cooking dish for a lazy Sunday afternoon. In this video, Chef John goes low and slow to create an instant comfort food classic—a delicious meat sauce brightened up with cherry tomato puree. He uses chunks of brisket and beef short rib, but you can use any kind of stewing beef. Chef John slowly braises the beef with pureed cherry tomatoes, garlic, and shallots, which give the dish heaps of bright fresh flavor. A little tomato paste provides some additional body. Then just let it go and go over very low heat until the meat is fall-apart tender. Try this magnificent meat sauce over pasta. Get Chef John’s recipe for Slow-Braised Beef and Cherry Tomato Sauce.
