I'm up early this morning and it's 18* with an inch or so of snow and very windy - major storm for East Tennessee with most of the schools closed. I was planning to BBQ today, but I think I'll wait another day hang close to the fire today.
When I posted about the beef shanks on Dec. 9, I mentioned I’d reserved half of the meat and broth/veggies for another dish. Back on Dec 5, Joanne over at Eats Well With Others posted a recipe for Italian Braised Beef with Root Vegetables and Yia Yia's Sunday Sauce, and this is what we used the leftovers to make.
Bev was the chef for the day, and to make this dish, she made a quarter recipe of Yia’s Yia’s sauce as written by Joanne, and added a little jarred marinara sauce. She strained the mirepiox veggies from the broth and added them, the beef, and then just enough broth to get the consistency she was looking for. We then ate it over some cous cous – just because we hadn’t had it in awhile.
Before I wrote this up, I just finished the leftover bowl of it for lunch. I’m sure glad I stumbled into food bloggers, so I could get all these delicious recipes to try.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
