My son loves to help mama cook, which means he’s no help at all. I need to get in and out of the kitchen with a healthy meal. This Braised Beef and Onions recipe is relatively simple with very little prep. It’s such a huge help for a mom with a busy toddler, like myself.
Cooking the beef and onions in the chicken broth, wine and spiced really makes a flavorful sauce as well as tender steak. I really love this recipe with roasted acorn squash but I think it would be good over spinach or cauliflower rice.
