This is taken from Nora Ephron's novel Heartburn. Ephron's heroine and alter-ego, Rachael, does this as a whole pot-roasted piece of beef fillet. I do it as a beef casserole instead.
- cubed chuck steak (or beef bolar blade)
- 1 can mushroom soup (cream of)
- 1 packet french onion soup mix
- 1 large finely chopped onion
- 3 cloves crushed garlic
- 500 millilitres red wine
- 500 millilitres water
- bouquet garni
- 1 crushed bay leaf
- flour (seasoned)
