2 pounds beef chuck
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 medium spanish onion -- medium diced
2 medium carrots -- sliced 1/16 inch rounds
2 medium turnips -- cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1 cup veal stock
1/2 cup basic tomato sauce see note
1 cup dry red wine from franciacorta
1 recipe risotto alla milanese -- see * note

Preparation / Directions:

* Note: See the "Basic Tomato Sauce" and "Risotto Alla Milanese" recipes which are included in this collection. Cut beef into 2- by 3-inch cubes and season with salt and pepper. In an 8-quart heavy-bottom Dutch oven, heat oil and butter over medium heat until foam subsides. Brown beef pieces 4 to 5 at a time until dark golden-brown, about 12 to 20 minutes. This step cannot be shortened, it is essential! When meat is done, remove last pieces and add onions, carrots and turnips and cook until brown bits on bottom of pan have softened and loosened. Add stock, Basic Tomato Sauce and wine and bring to a boil. Add beef pieces and return to boil. Lower heat to simmer, cover and cook 1 1/2 to 2 hours until meat is very tender. Remove and serve with Risotto Alla Milanese. Source: MOLTO MARIO with Mario Batali From the TV FOOD NETWORK - (Show # MB-5741)
