  1. In a large pot, sauté mushrooms and onions in olive oil and butter until onions are translucent and mushrooms are nicely browned.
  2. During the last minute, add crushed garlic to the mix.
  3. Add meat pieces and toss until browned as well, then put all the other ingredients except the fresh herbs in the pot.
  4. Bring to a boil and simmer on very low, covered, for about 2 hours or until the meat is tender and practically falling apart.
  5. Five minutes before serving, add the fresh herbs.
  6. Top with shredded or shaved Parmesan to serve.
  7. Makes 4-8 servings.


1. Substitute 1/2 cup of the broth for red wine; add it first after sautéing the onions and browning the meat to deglaze, then add the broth and other ingredients.

2. Add 8 oz. of cream cheese or yogurt cheese after removing from heat and before serving.

3. Slow Cooker/Crockpot option: Brown the beef and onion in a pot, then throw everything in a slow cooker on low for 8 hours. Make another similar dish in the slow cooker by following this recipe.
