Holiday Braised Beef

The holidays always means cooking for a crowd and braises are perfect for the season. They’re easy to put together and just get better as they sit — any leftovers go to great use. With the Anova Precision Oven, it's even easier to braise because you don’t have to sear the meat or vegetables on the stovetop; everything is done in the oven, which prevents mess and keeps you free to do all the other things you need to do.
This recipe is inspired by a classic German dish, sauerbraten. It contains tender beef served in a glossy, slightly sour sauce made from wine and mustard. Unlike traditional recipes, this version doesn’t require a long marinating time. Serve with mashed potatoes, cooked egg noodles, or polenta.
Notes: Gently reheat any leftovers in the Anova Precision Oven at 300°F (149°C), with sous vide mode turned off, top and rear heat, and 50% steam. This will ensure the meat will be heated through without drying out. The amount of time it takes to reheat will depend on the amount of meat you are adding, but can be anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes. Reheat the sauce gently on the stovetop.
