After bookmarking too many recipes, I decided I needed to calm down and just pick one to cook for dinner. I decided to make Slow-Cooked Beer Ragu Pasta for my first Donna Hay recipe. I found the recipe online here too.
slow-cooked beef ragu pasta
by Donna Hay
I decided to prep this early since Addison had an orchestra concert that night. I gave myself enough time to chop and brown everything so I would just have to put it in the oven, set the timer for 2 hours, and go to the concert. I even went a little crazy and went a la Pioneer Woman and took pictures of all my steps. If I only had time and patience to do this everyday.
Beef brisket cut into 4 pieces
Put in pan to brown
Flipped and browned
My horrible slicing job of the onion
Brisket browned and set aside
2 cups of beef broth
Fresh cherry tomatoes. I didn't use canned.
I love this tomato paste. So much more efficient that the canned stuff.
Yes I actually have Caster sugar stoked in my pantry.
1 cup of water.
The red wine is used for cooking.
Everything put in the pan and ready to be cooked for 2 hours.
Finished product. Delicious!!!
