This Braised Beef with Shallots and Mushrooms recipe is cooked slow to develop the most amazing flavour combination of shallots, balsamic vinegar, brown sugar, and mushrooms.  



  1. Coat beef with flour.
  2. Heat half of margarine in large non-stick skillet at medium-high. Cook coated beef until well browned on all sides – about 10 minutes. Remove and set aside. Reduce heat to medium.
  3. Heat remaining margarine in skillet. Add shallots and cook until just tender – about 7 minutes,stirring often. Stir in broth,tomatoes,vinegar and sugar. Heat to a boil. Stir in browned beef. Reduce heat to low. Cover with tight-fitting lid and simmer for 1½ hours.
  4. Stir in potatoes,mushrooms and carrots. Simmer,covered,until beef and vegetables are fork-tender – about 40 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley and lemon zest just before serving.

Recipe Tips

Braising works best with a tight-fitting skillet lid that keeps the cooking liquid from evaporating. This longer,slower cooking method makes the beef tender while rich flavours develop in the sauce.
