Braised Beef in Barolo Wine ….. Brasato al Barolo……

Made with the famous Barolo wine of the Piemontese region, this beef dish loves a long bathe in the full bodied wine along with vegetables & herbs before being slowly cooked over a gentle flame. This gives the dish its richness and succulence, traditionally served with polenta......... It's worth the wait.....
