This a rich and comforting dish. Slow cooking makes the beef wonderfully tender and marinade helps to keep the meat succulent, as well as adding flavour. To marinade the beef, add the red wine in a bowl with the beef and marinade overnight for 12 hours. Re-use the wine later in the recipe towards the end.
