Saucy Marinated Beef


This simple dish features stewing beef simmered in a rich and flavorful sauce featuring the robust flavors of balsamic vinegar, steak sauce, and fragrant herbs. Serve over steamed white rice and alongside a green salad topped with your favorite dressing for a meal that’s sure to warm you on the coldest winter night.

You Will Need:

  • 1.5 lb stewing beef
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil (can sub. canola oil)
  • 1/4 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup beef broth (plus extra if needed)
  • Splash of steak sauce, such as A1
  • 1 TBSP minced garlic
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder


  1. Chop stewing beef into even-sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. Combine onions, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, red wine, steak sauce, garlic, thyme, and chili powder. Stir until thoroughly mixed.
  3. Season meat evenly with salt and pepper.
  4. Toss meat with marinade. Cover and allow to marinade for 30 minutes, stirring every 5-10 minutes or as top of meat begins to appear dry.
  5. Heat 1TBSP cooking oil in a large pan over medium heat. When pan is hot, add meat and marinade.
  6. Cook for approximately 5 minutes, stirring halfway through.
  7. Reduce heat to a fast simmer and cover, stirring occasionally. Allow meat to cook for 30-45  minutes, or until fork-tender. Add beef broth if meat becomes dry- you want some sauce.
  8. Continue cooking uncovered until sauce is reduced and thickened. If sauce refuses to thicken, feel free to add 1tsp cornstarch, though this should not happen.
  9. Serve hot over steamed white rice, seasoned with salt and pepper, and enjoy!
