Chef John's Tuscan Black Pepper Beef
In this video, you'll see how to make a hearty Tuscan Black Pepper Beef (Peposa Dell'Impruneta). In this traditional Tuscan preparation, beef short ribs are slowly braised with lots and lots of black pepper, red wine, and fresh herbs. The result is rich, flavorful, fork tender beef. "The amount of black pepper is up to you," says Chef John. "But even the ridiculous amount I used wasn’t overpowering. The acidity and sweetness of the reduced wine balances everything beautifully."
