How to Braise Beef

  1. Prepare the Meat by patting it dry with paper towels to remove excess moisture. This helps with browning. Season generously with salt and pepper, or other seasonings of your choice on all sides. Our oxtail seasoning is great on other proteins as well.
  2. Sear the Meat which is done easily by heating a large Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium high heat. Then add vegetable oil or olive oil to the pot. Once hot, brown the beef on all sides until browned, about 3-4 minutes per side. This step helps develop flavor and creates a nice crust on the meat. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  3. Sauté the aromatics in the same pot, add chopped onions, carrots, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the they are softened and lightly browned, about 5-6 minutes.
  4. Deglaze the Pot by adding liquid, red wine braised beef, broth or a combination to the pot. Scrape up any browned bits from the bottom with a wooden spoon or spatula. This adds flavor to the braising liquid.
  5. Return to the pot nestling it into the vegetables and liquid. Add any herbs, spices, or additional vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, mushrooms, or bell peppers if desired.
  6. Braise the Meat once it reaches a simmer. Cover the pot with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Let the meat braise in the pot for several hours, cook time depends on the type and size. It is done when it is fork-tender and easily shreds apart.

Often times we will serve this with Roasted Red Cabbage Steaks for a great duo. You can use green or red to make these, buttery and baked in the oven.

How to Make Instant Pot Braised Beef Tips

If you want to make this faster in a pressure cooker you certainly can. It would be cooked similar to our Instant Pot Beef Tips and Gravy except with different ingredients to cook in. At the beginning you would use the saute function that works just like you would in a pan over the stove. Add stew meat, cut up steak or other small bites to brown with the onions.

  1. Deglaze the bottom scraping all the stuck on bits off with some of your broth. Then pour the rest of everything is inside.
  2. Close the lid of the pot and set the valve to the sealing position. Set to high, pressure cook setting. Set the cooking time to 45 minutes.
  3. Once the cooking time is complete, allow the pressure to naturally release for 10-15 minutes, then carefully switch the valve to the venting position to release any remaining pressure.
  4. Open the lid and if desired you can thicken the braising liquid by mixing cornstarch or flour with water to create a slurry, then stir it into the pot.

Turn to saute again if you choose to do this so it can bubble a few minutes and create more of a gravy thick consistency if that is what you desire.

What is Braised Beef?

Braised meat can be made with various cuts of meat, such as beef chuck roast, fall apart brisket, or short ribs. It’s often served on a bed of mashed potatoes, rice, or crusty bread to soak up the delicious sauce. This method of cooking beef is a comforting and satisfying meal that’s perfect for chilly days or special occasions.

What is the best beef for braising?

1. Chuck roast is one of the most popular cuts for braising because it becomes incredibly tender and flavorful when cooked low and slow.
2. Brisket has a significant amount of connective tissue, making it ideal for braising. Braised brisket is often used in dishes like pot roast or barbecue.
3. Short ribs have a good amount of fat and connective tissue, which makes them perfect for braising on the stove.
4. Chuck eye roast comes from the shoulder area of the cow and has a good amount of marbling and collagen.

Another more unusual cut that gets overlooked often but works well is Beef Shank with Bone. Sometimes called osso buco it gets more tender the longer it is simmered on the stovetop. Read and print recipe below to get started friends!!

Braised Beef Noodle Soup

To transition this dish into Beef Noodle Soup you would just boil noodles separately until al dente in water. OR you can remove the meat, set aside covered to stay warm and actually cook the egg noodles or other pasta in the same liquid until tender! Add more beef broth if there isn’t enough for you and then serve together.
