Recipe: Slow-Braised Pasture-Fed Beef Jacob’s Ladder
- 2 pounds beef Jacob’s Ladder
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 cup red wine
- 4 cups beef broth
- 2 bay leaves
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- Salt and black pepper, to taste
- Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)
- Start by preheating your oven to 325°F (163°C).
- In a large, oven-safe Dutch oven or casserole dish, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
- Season the beef Jacob’s Ladder with salt and black pepper. Sear it in the hot oil until it develops a deep brown crust on all sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Remove and set aside.
- In the same pot, add the chopped onion, carrots, and celery. Sauté for 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables soften.
- Add minced garlic and cook for an additional minute until fragrant.
- Pour in the red wine and scrape the bottom of the pot to deglaze, releasing any flavorful browned bits.
- Return the seared beef Jacob’s Ladder to the pot. Add beef broth, bay leaves, and a sprig of fresh thyme.
- Cover the Dutch oven or casserole dish, then transfer it to the preheated oven.
- Slow-braise for about 3-4 hours, or until the beef Jacob’s Ladder is tender and easily pulls apart.
- Once cooked, remove the bay leaves and thyme sprig.
- Serve the slow-braised pasture-fed beef Jacob’s Ladder hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
