Miso-Braised Beef with King Mushrooms
By seasoning our beef chuck pieces with salt, pepper, and cayenne before we brown them over high heat on the stovetop, we provide a flavorful base for the fall-inspired flavors that are to come. King trumpet mushrooms are then cooked golden in butter in the same pan before we add onion and sake, scraping up the delicious remnants from our browned beef. We then stir in miso paste, maple syrup, ketchup, and chicken broth and bring the savory-sweet mixture to a simmer before we return our beef, mushrooms, and their juices back into the pan. It’s now as easy as turning down the heat and letting our beef braise in the mixture until it’s fork-tender. We finish the dish by adding a splash of rice wine vinegar, chiles, and green onions, and letting it cook just a few more minutes to meld those flavors. There you have it – comfort food that is anything but traditional. Get Chef John’s recipe for Miso-Braised Beef with King Mushrooms.
