Red Wine Braised Beef and Polenta

I made poutine a few months back and I had some leftover braised beef in the freezer. I made a red wine mushroom gravy and simmered the beef in that. I bought a tube of already cooked polenta and reconstituted it with milk and chicken stock, added in some parmesan and dinner is served.

Red Wine Mushroom Gravy

1 Tbls butter

2 Tbls of olive oil

1 Package of sliced mushrooms

1 Shallot minced

1 1/2 Cups of red wine

1 1/2 Cups of beef stock

Heat the butter and oil in a sauce pan. Add in mushrooms and shallots and cook until the mushrooms start to brown. Add in flour and cook one minute. Add in the wine and stock and bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer and whisk until thickened. Add in salt and pepper to taste.
